Abstract/Notes Excerpt: Two questions arise when chiropractors consider issues surrounding Continuing Health Education (CHE):
1. What are the goals of CHE?
2. Why do chiropractors need CHE?
The answer to the both questions is relatively simple:
• To ensure that health providers maintain and enhance their skills and competencies throughout their professional lives
• To change behaviours and improve patient outcomes

In order to change practice behaviour the chiropractor needs a source of clinical and scientific learning to update and alter accordingly the art and science of practice. A major challenge for all practicing chiropractors is determining how to improve quality of chiropractic care. CHE is basically about communication. Providers of CHE must identify the needs of the learner, determine the activity objectives, and structure an activity that can be demonstrated to achieve the objectives in the context of the learners. CHE consists of educational activities which serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships of a health professional.
