“…the chiropractic profession doesn’t do itself any favours, particularly when it chooses to disregard the impact associated with perpetuating outdated principles conceived in the 19th century and the influence this has on its current professional standing. Embracing modern health science would be one crucial way forward to shift public opinion and our status in the health care community…Unification of the profession is as remote today as it has ever been and in some ways responsible for the lack of progress…More importantly, chiropractic undergraduate education must become integrated within the higher educational infrastructure at university level which brings access to public funds, research opportunities and staff development…The profession must move in this direction to enable student access to high quality education and minimise the excessive financial burden which may influence individual practice style and ethical behaviour following graduation.” David Byfield, Head of the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic at the University of Glamorgan, European Chiropractors’ Union President’s blog (22nd September 2010) [The article is from a lecture that David Byfield gave at the ECU Convention in London in May 2010]
