Chiropractic Australia


Since 2012 Researchers’ Days have been the precursor to Chiropractic Australia’s annual conferences.

Details of the 2019 Researchers’ Day can be found here.

The Researchers’ Days are open to chiropractors and osteopaths currently undertaking research or others researching questions directly related to chiropractic or osteopathic practice.

The aims for these days are:

  1. To provide a forum for research collaboration in the chiropractic and osteopathic community
  2. To share information about the participant’s research
  3. To provide an opportunity to learn about the research of others.

On the inaugural Researchers’ Day in 2012 Professor Chris Maher (University of Sydney) gave 4 presentations 3 of which are available here:

  1. Applying for a Grant
  2. Designing An RCT Protocol I (The Context)
  3. Designing An RCT Protocol II
  4. Research Career

Since they began the Researchers’ Days have given participants the opportunity to hear from a range of esteemed speakers including Nobel prize winner, Professor Peter Doherty (University of Melbourne), Professor Jan Hartvigsen (University of Southern Denmark), Professor Charlotte Leboeuf-Yde (University of Southern Denmark) as well as Professor Ian Harris (Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, UNSW) and Professor Jon Adams (UTS). Other international presenters have included Professor Gert Bronfort (University of Minnesota) and Associate Professor Roni Evans (University of Minnesota). These speakers have all presented aspects of their own research and provided valuable insights and tips on how they developed their research careers.
