Patient and Public Involvement

Organisations responsible for training future chiropractors aim to involve patients and the public in all aspects of their programmes. Involvement is important during the development of the educational programme, right through to the delivery of the course itself, including the assessment of students.
As part of our remit we approve educational institutions wishing to deliver chiropractic education programmes that lead to us registering a chiropractor. During our approval visits, we often request a meeting with patients to help inform our decision on the provider’s suitability.
As part of our annual monitoring process of approved educational providers we ask for information on patient and public involvement over the previous academic year. This includes plans for improving the education programme as a result of the involvement, as well as the provider’s plans for improving the involvement of patients and the public in the following year.
If you are interested in becoming involved with an education provider, please contact them directly.
