Chiropractic Board of Australia - Safe and professional practice

Safe and professional practice

09 Mar 2021

A new information video explains professional obligations for registered chiropractors.

The information video outlines what is expected of chiropractors under the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme), with a focus on continuing professional development (CPD), advertising and use of social media.

Chiropractor Board of Australia (the Board) Chair, Dr Wayne Minter AM, said chiropractors must meet the standards and expectations of the profession throughout the course of their career, not just upon initial registration.

‘The Board has released this video to help explain your professional obligations as a registered chiropractor to provide safe, professional and evidence-based care,’ he said.

Obligations of all health practitioners registered under the National Scheme include carrying out and recording CPD, ensuring your advertising is compliant, and that you are complying with your professional obligations online, as you would in person.

Developed for both new and existing members of the profession, the video aims to help clarify for a chiropractor what it means to be registered under the National Scheme.

‘Public protection is paramount in the National Scheme. Hopefully this video will help clarify for chiropractors how they can continue to meet their obligations and provide safe and professional care,’ Dr Minter said.

The video is published on the Registration overview page of the Board’s website.

The Board will also be holding professional obligation information sessions (via Zoom).  There will be a several sessions held and practitioners will be sent an invitation to attend. This follows on from the Board’s commitment to provide face to face information sessions in 2020 which were postponed due to the pandemic.  More information will be provided via the website shortly.
