Thank you for your response. I understand the position I have put the BCA in. Please supply all details as to why you do not agree with Chiropractors making a diagnosis when protocols and procedures are in place. Also, what are the protocols and procedures that are stopping you from agreeing that a Doctor of Chiropractic is qualified to make a diagnosis?
Please can you send details of our next AGM so I can be prepared.
A doctor has the right to diagnose. If he or she gets it wrong, the mechanism is in place to deal with it, i.e. the GCC, insurance etc. To make a diagnosis is what I was taught in college. There are 3 things that make you a good practitioner- diagnosis, diagnosis, diagnosis. It is my right to diagnose and if I am wrong it is my reputation on the line.
