Mind maps for the chiropractic profession globally.
In today's session, our task was to choose a country from one of the seven regional divides that does not have an established or legal right to practice chiropractic. From there, we had to brain storm ideas on how we would approach and help in the establishment of chiropractic. This task demonstrated to me how difficult it can be to obtain information regarding chiropractic, from a country that does not legal recognized it. It follows then that it would be even more difficult, and a painstaking process to try to establish a chiropractic association, as well as the funding to do so.
What each group came up with was this:
1) That chiropractic is considered a CAM (Clinical Alternative medicine) in most of these regions
2) Each region would need to establish their own chiropractic association.
3) To do #2, they would all need help from the World Health Organization, as well as the World Federation of chiropractic.
4) Each region would need funding and research to support their need for a chiropractic college.
5) If the chiropractic institution was successful, the CCEI would be needed to regulate the standard of education.
Its clear to see that establishing chiropractic throughout the globe is not an easy thing to do, and it sure does not happen over night. It takes some dedicated people and passion.
