Letter from the Editor-in-Chief

We are enthused to share this issue of D.C. Tracts with our readers!

Our contributors include longstanding and respected authorities in the topics of jurisprudence, ethics and business management. I believe the important ideas presented in this issue will inspire chiropractors’ decisions in each day of clinical practice, and thereby influence patient care and clinical results as well as financial outcomes.

Dr. Brian Gleberzon begins this issue with a discussion of the importance and relevance of business training within the chiropractic profession. Dr. Gleberzon also contributes an audio lecture presenting risk management strategies when facing potential liability. In addition, Dr. Stephen Perle’s audio lecture delineates the role of professional ethics within the profession, including topics such as altruism and normative ethics. With a focus on the chiropractic profession, Dr. Brad Muir reviews abstracts that highlight contemporary thoughts related to placebo effects, business education and informed consent. Finally, Dr. Gleberzon wraps up his current Juris-Proofing series with a fourth installment on the significance of maintaining patient health records, in particular the plan of management.

I trust that as the reader, you will find this issue of D.C. Tracts both informative and interesting, refining your clinical expertise and patient services.

Best regards,

Bryan M. Bond, BSc, BS, MS, PhD
