In June 2020, the College of Chiropractors of BC’s Board adopted a process for policy development that reinforces the evidence-informed nature of how decisions are made, including consideration of the latest research and, if appropriate, a period of public consultation.
The College of Chiropractors of BC has made a commitment to registrants, to the public, and to other key stakeholders to be open and transparent when it comes to policy, the scope of practice, bylaws, or other changes that could potentially affect the regulation of chiropractic in our province. We want to be sure that everyone knows what is being considered, and why. A variety of mechanisms and contexts will be considered and analyzed for policy process changes, on a case by case basis, to reach the public and registrants with the focus on protecting the public interest. In some cases, where appropriate, public consultation is one such mechanism available.
When a public consultation is undertaken, details regarding public consultation will be communicated broadly to ensure the public and registrants can contribute.
