Course Description


Involving chiropractors in research – Drivers and Barriers?

Learning aims

The purpose of the Researchers’ Day (RD) is to facilitate networking and academic discussions among researchers within the chiropractic profession and clinicians with a research interest. Specifically, to inspire to new insights about how genetics impact low back pain and subgroups of patients with back pain.


A full-day seminar on knowledge transfer and involvement of clinicians in research. The morning session includes talks from four keynote speakers. First, we will explore successes and challenges in engaging chiropractors in research using Dutch and UK examples. Following, we will focus on practice-based networks as a way of engaging clinicians in research in Canada and the Netherlands. In the afternoon, challenges and potential solutions will be discussed with groups workshopping ideas and sharing experiences. Finally, four PhD student will present their work related to the theme of the day.
