Public Consultation on the Use of Radiography

On July 15, 2020 the College of Chiropractors of British Columbia (CCBC) advised that it was in the process of analysing the use of routine and repeat spinal radiography, such as X-rays, and anticipates amendments to the Professional Conduct Handbook (PCH) as a result. These draft amendments are now posted for public consultation:

The CCBC is asking that any comments concerning the draft amendments be sent in writing to the CCBC prior to 4:30 p.m. on September 8, 2020. A summary of comments will be published following the consultation period.

The research to support this review is available here: “The clinical utility of routine spinal radiographs by chiropractors: a rapid review of the literature.” This research was conducted by Ontario Tech University at the request of the CCBC.

Comments can be sent to the CCBC:
