1 2010 Activity Update

2 “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, The American Chiropractic Association, Association of Chiropractic Colleges, Association of Chiropractic Colleges, Council on Chiropractic Education, Council on Chiropractic Education, Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards, Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards, Foundation for the Advancement of Chiropractic Sciences, Foundation for the Advancement of Chiropractic Sciences, Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research, Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research, International Chiropractors Association, International Chiropractors Association, National Association of Chiropractic Attorneys and National Association of Chiropractic Attorneys and The National Institute for Chiropractic Research. The National Institute for Chiropractic Research.

3 “Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters (CCGPP)” The CCGPP's mission is to provide consistent and widely adopted chiropractic practice information, to perpetually distribute and update this data as is necessary, so that consumers and others have reliable information on which to base informed health care decisions.

4 “Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters (CCGPP)” CCGPP was also delegated to examine all existing guidelines, parameters, protocols and best practices in the United States and other nations with a chiropractic lens. Participation and process have been as transparent as possible and a major goal is to represent a diverse cross-section of the profession on the projects that CCGPP has been involved in.

5 “Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters (CCGPP)” CCGPP was charged with developing guidelines regarding the most common conditions treated by chiropractic physicians. Condition-based care is consistent with that found throughout the healthcare industry today, thus the focus of CCGPP’s efforts.

6 “Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters (CCGPP)” The CCGPP Council is charged with directing the activities of both the Commission and the Clinical Compass/DIER programs.

7 The Commission” “The Commission” The Commission is the scientific arm of the organization (i.e. the researchers) Products: Literature syntheses, guidelines, inclusion in the National Guideline Clearinghouse. “The Clinical Compass” Is the “process” for translating evidence into knowledge. Includes the various strategies of the DIER process (Dissemination, Implementation, Evaluation, Revision). Products: Seminars, products, webinars, articles, websites, various versions of the literature syntheses recommendations. “Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters (CCGPP)”

8 A wealth of information is available on the CCGPP website at All completed literature syntheses and consensus guidelines have been published in JMPT and submitted for inclusion in the National Guideline Clearinghouse at CCGPP Website Information

J Manipulative Physiol Ther Nov-Dec;31(9):  Chiropractic management of low back disorders: report from a consensus process.  Globe GA, Morris CE, Whalen WM, Farabaugh RJ, Hawk C; Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameter. J Manipulative Physiol Ther Nov-Dec;31(9): Topic: Low back and leg complaints

12 Topic: Lower Extremity Conditions Manipulative therapy for lower extremity conditions: expansion of literature review. Brantingham JW, Globe G, Pollard H, Hicks M, Korporaal C, Hoskins W. J Manipulative Physiol Ther Jan;32(1): Manipulative therapy of lower extremity conditions: Summary of Clinical Practice Recommendations from the Commission of the Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters

13 Topic:Tendinopathy Chiropractic management of tendinopathy: a literature synthesis. Pfefer MT, Cooper SR, Uhl NL.

Vernon H, Schneider M J Manipulative Physiol Ther Jan;32(1): Chiropractic management of myofascial trigger points and myofascial pain syndrome: Summary of Clinical Practice Recommendations from the Commission of the Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters

16 Topic: Nonmusculoskeletal conditions/Wellness Chiropractic care for nonmusculoskeletal conditions: a systematic review with implications for whole systems research. Hawk C, Khorsan R, Lisi AJ, Ferrance RJ, Evans MW. J Altern Complement Med Jun;13(5):

17 Care Definitions project Care Definitions project: will finally have everyone on the same page regarding terms. Status: Submitted for publication to JMPT. Chronic care guideline Chronic care guideline: will finally have a chiropractic-driven fair guideline providing direction on how to identify the chronic/recurrent pain patient, documentation, and treatment guidelines. Status: Delphi panel has agreement on all but one seed statement. Will be done by the end of March.

18 Chronic care guideline Chronic care guideline: This guideline when published will help solve the problems caused by bad consultants and payors and doctors who may need some direction regarding the management of chronic pain patients. It will provide a roadmap for appropriate case management and help ensure that chiropractic-directed care when appropriate will remain a viable option for chronic pain patients. Currently, too many patients are being redirected to medical physicians due to lack of a guideline for chronic pain management related to non- pharmacological care provided by chiropractic physicians.

19 Project Goal: This chapter will provide the evidence related to the rationale basis of performing spinal manipulation on a particular spine site. New Chapter: “Site of Care: Evidence as to Indicator for Focus of SMT“ Clinical Indicators for Locating Spinal Manipulation

20 Literature inclusion criteria: a) Articles on PARTS & related evaluation procedures commonly used by DCs to locate where to treat. b) must contain data related to the parameters themselves. c) cervical, thoracic, lumbar or pelvic focus. New Chapter: “Site of Care: Evidence as to Indicator for Focus of SMT“ Clinical Indicators for Locating Spinal Manipulation

21 This is a project of historical importance! Regardless of philosophical beliefs, this is one project the entire profession can rally behind. While not all will be used, the research team already identified 80 papers of mixed quality and validity demonstrating the deleterious effects of loss of range of motion alone. Effort spearheaded by Drs. Carl Cleveland III and Jay Triano. New Chapter: “Site of Care: Evidence as to Indicator for Focus of SMT“ Clinical Indicators for Locating Spinal Manipulation

22 The physical therapists have declared war on chiropractic and have staked out “spinal manipulation” as the main battleground in the musculoskeletal treatment market. This project will cost $60,000, and funding from the field is critical to its success!

23 We continue to receive requests from the field to help with issues which affect doctors and the patients we serve: Ex: UHC-wanted to exclude payment for tx of infants, adolescents and headaches. Ex: UHC: issues every year since 2006, including treatment related to patients injured in motor vehicle collisions. Ex: Humana/Healthways (ACA), NY, CA, ODG, Milliman, and over 30 other projects

24 : Two types of seminars: 1. Train the Trainers Each state association will be invited (for a very small fee to cover expenses) to send one or two representatives to this seminar where they will be provided with the tools/PowerPoint and learn how to present the published chapters and guidelines to doctors in each state.

25 : Two types of seminars: 2. State Association license renewal seminars 2. State Association license renewal seminars using CCGPP/Clinical Compass certified speakers from each state.  Goal: To educate our doctors and help translate evidence into clinical practice. We will show them how to use evidence to grow strong and healthy practices.  Goal: To create a financial win-win for each state association and CCGPP, with a small percent of each seminar profit being returned to CCGPP to help fund the Clinical Compass and future research/iterations.

26  We need funding, from both the field doctors and corporate sponsors, in order to fund the Clinical Compass, the Rapid Response Team and future research projects.  Our mission is to generate a pool of funds which can be granted to the colleges to fund research projects and “fill in the gaps” which have been identified through the CCGPP process thus far.

27  Many thanks to our corporate supporters:  ChiroCode Institute  ChiroCode Institute and late D. Henry Leavitt  Core Products  Core Products and President Philip Mattison who recently committed up to $10,000 in the form of a matching donation. He will donate $1 for every dollar donated by the profession, up to $10,000!

28 free pillow Core Products will provide a free pillow per $100 donated to the CCGPP. This “product rebate” will be capped at a total of 500 pillows and will equate to a potential of $50,000 raised by the profession. Doctors pay only freight on pillows earned. 10% discount Core Products will provide a 10% discount on ALL products available through the Core Website for anyone who signs up for a recurring $84/mo for 12 month “membership” to CCGPP.

29 We invite and encourage other corporate entities to financially support CCGPP/The Clinical Compass in our efforts to help doctors build strong and healthy evidence-based practices by translating evidence into knowledge and improved patient outcomes.
