This time of year always gets me reflecting on things that went well and some that I’d like to forget.
Arlington, Va. – The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has welcomed the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) draft Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain, commending the agency for recommending the use of conservative forms of pain management as an initial treatment option.
There is a lot of buzz lately within the profession in regards to becoming spinal care experts and increasing the utilization of chiropractic. I am a huge fan of more people using chiropractic care as a lifestyle choice. Most of the talk, however, is focused strictly on back pain. I believe we would be doing patients a disservice if all we did for them was to fix their back pain.
Attracting new patients is always a hot topic in the world of chiropractic. Many think that by satisfying the unquenchable thirst for new patients, all will be well. This mindset can be detrimental to the sustainable growth of your practice.
Did you ever consider the number one reason companies hire someone is because they are in need of their services? Conversely, the number one reason people are laid off is because the company doesn’t need their services any longer.
Simon Sinek, author of Start with Why and thought-provoking Ted Talk speaker, believes that the driving force behind a successful leader is taking action on his or her “why.”
Value for money appears to be finally getting the attention it merits as Alberta’s new health minister, Stephen Mandel, takes the reins of the portfolio that is close to consuming 50 per cent of the province’s operating budget. This is an area of magnificent opportunity.
I believe there is value in creating connections with other health-care disciplines when it comes to patient care. However, with the way things are going in many chiropractic corners, integration into main stream health care will soon mean assimilation. This can be dangerous for the profession and to chiropractors. We can all agree that the health-care system is failing; that we can’t afford the model that is being delivered. The question I pose to the profession is: why would we want to be a part of this sinking health-care ship?
If there is one thing Dr. Greg Stewart is most excited about in his new role as president of the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC), it is the opportunity to help advance the chiropractic profession as an equal player in the global health-care arena, helping solve some of the world’s most pressing health issues.
