The Beginning: Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters (CCGPP)
The Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters (CCGPP) was formed in 1995 at the behest of the Congress of Chiropractic State Associations (COCSA) and with assistance from the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), Association of Chiropractic Colleges, Council on Chiropractic Education, Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards, Foundation for the Advancement of Chiropractic Sciences, Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research, International Chiropractors Association, National Association of Chiropractic Attorneys, and the National Institute for Chiropractic Research.
The mission of the Clinical Compass is to improve patient outcomes by advancing evidence – based care in an effort to transform healthcare through knowledge translation. The Clinical Compass collaborates with every major chiropractic organization, many states and their respective associations, individual chiropractors, as well as other healthcare providers interested in providing the best, most evidence based care to their patients. Participation and process are as transparent as possible and a diverse cross-section of the chiropractic profession is represented.
