Self-perceived evidence-based practice competencies: a survey of faculty and students at a chiropractic institution.
CONCLUSION: This study found variance in the self-perceived EBP skills, utilization, barriers, and facilitators and that these skills are lagging at our doctor of chiropractic program, which does not have a structured EBP program. Faculty members and students identified the importance for EBP. Similar observations have been found at other chiropractic institutions prior to their implementation of a systematic EBP program. Those developing an EBP curriculum might use these findings to better design, implement, and assess a structured program.

Designing a 21st century chiropractic educational program: A time for reflection, a time for action.
Abstract The first new doctor of chiropractic program in the United States since 2003 started in 2016 and offered an opportunity to incorporate medical educational innovations and design principles from the experience of those involved in starting new health care programs. Thus, while the goal of the new program was to create a curriculum focused on evidence-based health care practices, it was also possible to use best evidence in the design of the new curriculum. Many innovative and evidence-based curricular elements were incorporated in the new program, including early and sustained clinical experience, case-bas...

A comparison of the academic outcome of chiropractic students on full-time and full-time equivalent chiropractic education routes.
CONCLUSIONS: While it is possible that demographic differences influence the outcomes in each training route, this preliminary study indicates that, based only on analysis of overall achievement, there is no difference in either FT or FTE programs in training chiropractors, allowing them to register with the UK regulatory body. It suggests that a nontraditional mode of delivery is an achievable route to qualification as a chiropractor, enabling a greater number of students to consider chiropractic as a career choice while managing other life commitments.

Predicting stress and test anxiety among 1st-year chiropractic students.
Abstract OBJECTIVE:: We evaluated perceived stress in 1st-year chiropractic students and the relationship between perceived stress and test anxiety. Moreover, we sought student-identified stressors that complicate chiropractic education. METHODS:: We tested 3 hypotheses in a longitudinal descriptive study: (1) student-perceived stress would increase over 6 months of chiropractic training, (2) depression level and grade-point average (GPA) at matriculation would predict student-perceived stress 6 months into the program, and (3) perceived stress would correlate with cognitive and emotional test anxiety levels....

Student and new graduate perception of hospital versus institutional clinic for clinical educational experience.
CONCLUSION:: Access and opportunity in both clinical environments is considered optimal in regards to providing a broad and varied student clinical experience. Exclusivity to one may not provide the best preparation for the professional context. As most graduate opportunities are private practice, the institutional clinical environment will provide a sufficient clinical teaching and learning environment to support the professional needs. A combination of these environments is considered ideal for the graduate. PMID: 30785767 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Journal of Chiropractic Education)

A mixed-method study of chiropractic student clinical immersion placements in nonmetropolitan Western Australia: Influence on student experience, professional attributes, and practice destination.
CONCLUSION:: Many chiropractic programs around the world are adopting CIPs. This study is the 1st to investigate the possible influence of nonmetropolitan CIPs on the development of desirable attributes in Australian chiropractic students. It also discusses the potential influence of nonmetropolitan CIPs on future practice location decisions. These results support the utility of CIPs to help meet the educational objectives of chiropractic programs and possibly address the maldistribution of the chiropractic workforce in Australia.

A collaborative process for a program redesign for education in evidence-based health care.
CONCLUSION: The mechanism of curriculum mapping allowed for discussion about the flow of information from year to year and how evidenced knowledge and understanding can be developed. It is necessary that everyone participates and understands the importance of program goals as developed by the process. Because drift in curriculum can occur incrementally over the years, to be effective, the program requires ongoing monitoring and regular collaboration to continue improvements.

Development of a clinical skills remediation program for chiropractic students at a university.
CONCLUSION: We developed and implemented a chiropractic remediation program to satisfy the need for objectively identifying and remediating clinical skill deficiencies. This remediation program experienced an increase in use in its initial 3 years of operation, indicating more inclusion of the program across the departments, clinics, and assessment. The outcome of remediation is still not clear because there are no consistent assessment measures in place to determine pre- and postremediation student performance.
