We Need Your Help


The Clinical Compass is supporting work to develop new competencies to aid doctor of chiropractic programs in setting up students for success in hospitals and other integrated environments. The new competencies are tentatively titled: Core competencies to prepare chiropractic program graduates for integrated care settings: A modified Delphi study.

 Part of the process is to get public comments to incorporate into the competencies.

We have just completed an extensive Delphi panel consensus process with 37 DCs with experience in working in integrated and education settings. However, public input is still an essential part of the process!

For the sake of transparency, we have included:

  • A summary of the methodology, including a list of project personnel
  • A set of definitions used in the competency statements
  • The consensus recommendations. These include the percent agreement by the Delphi panel as well as all the references on which the recommendations are based.

We have created a fillable form to facilitate your input (comment form.docx). If you wish to comment, please complete and return it by December 15th to Project Coordinator Cathy Evans ([email protected]). Your responses are anonymous.


Thank you!
