One of the ways in which the Chiropractic Board of Australia (National Board) protects the community is by investigating complaints and concerns (notifications) and, when necessary, subsequently managing chiropractors:
The Board is ‘notified’ of an issue. The word ‘notification’ is deliberate and reflects that the Board is not a complaints resolution agency. It is a protective jurisdiction and its role is to protect the public by dealing with chiropractors who may be putting the public at risk as a result of their conduct, professional performance or health. More information about the complaints and concerns (notifications) process can be found on the Complaints or concerns page of AHPRA’s website.
