Abstract

The Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act was implemented in 2010, and brought with it the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency and the Chiropractic Board of Australia. This resulted in the production of a new National Chiropractic Code of Conduct. The aim of this study was to assess the attitudes and compliance of the chiropractic profession to these changes one year on. This was achieved by a cross sectional survey of both the Chiropractic Association of Australia and Chiropractic and Osteopathic College of Australia members. The results indicate that participating chiropractors are generally compliant towards and supportive of most of the requirements within the National Chiropractic Code of Conduct. This study serves to inform the chiropractic profession of their ethical and legal obligations, and as a comparison for future studies.
