  Title The patient-centred paradigm: A model for chiropractic health promotion and wellness
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2006 Sep;36(3):92-96
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes The patient-centred paradigm has traditionally provided a model for chiropractic practice that includes promotion of health and wellness. The clash between this holistic paradigm and the reductionist paradigm that characterises the specialist-dominated biomedical model are at the root of the current identity turmoil within the chiropractic profession. This article describes the characteristics of the patient-centred paradigm in relation to chiropractic practice, discusses limitations of evidence-based care that accepts only randomised controlled trials, and advocates competency-based standardisation of instruction in health promotion and wellness as proposed by the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE). Health promotion and wellness are global priorities and are becoming more important as it becomes apparent that the current “disease care” model isn’t working. Chiropractors are well suited to practise a patient-centred paradigm that provides a model for health promotion and wellness in the patient’s interest.
