Following on from the 2017 'Oxford Forum', EBC'18 brings together researchers, academics, clinicians and administrators from the chiropractic profession to examine and debate the role and direction of chiropractic research. Further details can be found on the conference website .

Please note, once you have you registered for the conference, you are invited to sign up for the pre-conference drinks reception on Friday 19th July at Kellogg College.

0845-0915: CONFERENCE REGISTRATION

0915-1000: KEYNOTE: EVIDENCE-BASED HEALTHCARE FOR THE CHIROPRACTIC

PROFESSION

Dr Jeremy Howick is based at the University of Oxford’s Department of Primary Care Health Sciences. Dr Howick is both a Research Fellow at the Centre of Evidence-Based Medicine and a Senior Research Associate within the Faculty of Philosophy.

Dr Howick's research draws on his interdisciplinary training as a philosopher of science and clinical epidemiologist. He has two related areas of interest. The first is evidence-based medicine, including 'hierarchies' of evidence, clinical epidemiology, and how point of care tests might improve practice. The second is the philosophy of medicine, including the ethics of placebos in clinical trials and clinical practice.

1000-1045: INFORMATIVE RESEARCH (Part One)

For this session we bring together researchers from the Royal College of Chiropractors, the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, the McTimoney College, and the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic to present papers that they consider influential in the shaping of today’s chiropractic, for the benefit or detriment of the profession. Each paper will be looked at in the contexts of the field of research and its importance to the practising clinician. There will be time for questions and discussion after each presentation.

1045-1100: MID-MORNING REFRESHMENTS

1100-1145: INFORMATIVE RESEARCH (Part Two)

For the this session we have asked the same researchers to present a second paper from any chiropractic related field, that they feel could importantly influence the direction of chiropractic research and/or practise. These papers can be on topics as diverse as subluxation theory, empathy, placebo, rehabilitation, lifestyle and doctor-patient relationships. Again, there will be the opportunity for questions and discussion after each presentation.

1145-1315: CURRENT CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH

Representatives from the colleges, the RCC and CRC/Southampton University present the current scope of institution-based chiropractic research in the United Kingdom. This knowledge will help inform delegates when discussing the direction of chiropractic, later on in the day.

1315-1415: LUNCH

The conference venue will be providing a ‘bagged lunch’ for delegates to be eaten either in the building, which has plenty of space to sit and chat, or outside should the weather be kind. If anyone has any particular dietary requirement, please email the conference organiser via the ticket site.

1415-1500: KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER WITHIN THE CHIROPRACTIC PROFESSION

In their 2009 paper in The Lancet, Chalmers and Glasziou estimated that 85% of medical research is wasted, and a high proportion of that due to poor or absent communication of results. With the limited resources available to chiropractic research, our lecturer looks at the field of healthcare research knowledge transfer and possible solutions to the problem to minimise waste and improve communication to the benefit of the profession. At the time of writing we are awaiting confirmation of the lecturer but will announce as soon as we are able.

1500-1515: MID-AFTERNOON REFRESHMENTS

1515-1545: THE ‘OXFORD FORUM’ DELPHI PROCESS RESULTS

Dr David Newell, Head of Research at the AECC and Senior Research Fellow at the University of Southampton, presents the conclusions of the Delphi Process from the 2017 Oxford Forum. He will analyse the findings and discuss how these can be used to inform chiropractic researchers and educators.

1545-1615: UK CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH IN A GLOBAL CONTEXT

Elisabeth Angier, Chair of the Chiropractic Research Council (CRC), discusses the appearance of international chiropractic research. She looks at what important research is going on outside of the United Kingdom and topics that the World Chiropractic Council has identified as worthy of prioritisation.

1615-1730: THE FUTURE DIRECTION OF CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH

Representatives of the chiropractic colleges, RCC and CRC discuss their plans for future research and whether any of the information presented during the day may influence their thinking. This is followed by a panel discussion where delegates from the SCA, UCA, BCA and MCA join the team to discuss the subject and discover how closely their thoughts are aligned.
