Donate to the Carnes Review **UPDATED**
Carnes Contract.png

The ACCP wishes to thank you very much for your contributions to the review on spinal manipulation by Dr Dawn Carnes. To date the fundraising effort of the ACCP has raised over $17,000, and the project has commenced. A recent correspondence from Dr Carnes has told us that her team have so far found over 300 articles, with 52 relevant for detailing the conditions involved. There are still more studies to review, as well as quality appraisal and further data extraction, and more information on this will be forthcoming – and we will provide you with these updates as they come.

We also want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the input from the ACA Paediatrics Interest Group/College of Chiropractic Paediatrics (CCP), who have generously contributed an additional $5,000 towards this important project. This brings the combined total of raised funds to over $22,000 – a phenomenal effort for a very short period of time.

We do still require that final $8,000 – so if you or people you know wish to help this project, please share and inform!

Statement on Paediatric Care

The Australian College of Chiropractic Paediatrics represents chiropractors with a minimum 2 years of post-graduate training in paediatrics. The ACCP was established in 2016 to promote evidence-based care of infants and children by chiropractors and to improve the level of paediatric training within the chiropractic profession.

The ACCP is concerned about the recent video reported by the Herald Sun newspaper and supports the need for an investigation by AHPRA and the Chiropractic Board of Australia. Further comments of the appropriateness of the examination and treatment shown in the video should wait for the conclusion of any investigation.

Chiropractors do provide care for infants as well as other paediatric age ranges with an excellent safety record.

As registered primary contact healthcare professionals, chiropractors receive foundation training in paediatrics and should remain a primary entry point for paediatric patients into the healthcare system.

Currently being able to locate a paediatric qualified chiropractor remains a significant problem for Australian families due to the advertising restrictions health care practitioners operate under

The ACCP supports the establishment of endorsed registration for paediatric qualified chiropractors which would allow the public to identify and access qualified paediatric chiropractors. Endorsed registration would be a significant step in improving the protection of the public and the continuing provision of safe, evidence based care for infants and children.

The ACCP is willing to provide expert input and advice when needed by policy makers.
