Part of the success of public health is related to the integration of practitioners across different disciplines. To promote this idea, presenters in our session will discuss characteristics of patients attending a chiropractic teaching clinic, online resources, a discussion of beliefs among nurses about chiropractic training. In addition, presenters cover poor posture, Alzheimer's disease, and melanoma.
Session Objectives: Describe the integration of posture principles into practice. Identify steps necessary to access an online resource for clinicians about the effectiveness of chiropractic care. List the patient characteristics upon initial presentation to a chiropractic teaching clinic. Identify the perception of nursing students about chiropractic training. Discuss the necessity of early intervention for Alzheimer's Disease. Describe the use of standardized patients in teaching students how to evaluate for melanoma.
