  • HIPAA Lessons Learned and Examples from Past Breaches and Fines

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 11/04/2021 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    Despite the Global Pandemic that was taking over the country, 2020 saw more HIPAA fines levied than any other year in the history of HIPAA. This was largely due in part to new initiatives by Health & Human Services, which included the implementation of the 21st Century Cures Act, as well as the OCR’s Right of Access Initiative. In this webinar, we'll be reviewing breaches and fines -- big and small, to give practical takeaways that you can use within your practice to ensure you are in compliance with these new regulations.

  • A Skill-Based Approach for Health Literacy Education in Chiropractors

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Functional health literacy is defined as the ability to read, write, and speak about health. Chiropractors need to know and be able to do health literacy to advance their field and to translate evidence-based interdisciplinary content outside their field into their professional practice. That fact argues for health literacy education as an essential component of professional development. However, the real deal is whether health literacy is understood and used by the lay public so they can learn about their own self-care during chiropractic care interactions.

That fact argues for health literacy education as an essential component of professional development. However, the real deal is whether health literacy is understood and used by the lay public so they can learn about their own self-care during chiropractic care interactions. The goal of this presentation is to establish the different types of health literacy, recognize the connections between oral, written, and body language in chiropractic care, and then adapt key chiropractic information into plain language for a low literacy audience. When chiropractors understand the profile of their clients in the context of health literacy research, the public face of chiropractic has the potential to improve in the clinic and in the professional literature.


    At the end of this educational session, participants will be able to:

    • Recognize one or two types of health literacy in their current practice;
    • Apply two skills (or strategies) for plain language communication and health literacy; 
    • Value the need for health literacy education in chiropractic care and professional development.

  • Chiropractic and the Care Community

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    According to the ACA, back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide and prevents people from engaging in work and everyday activities. PubMed reports that low back and neck pain are the leading causes of “years lived with disability” in most countries and across age groups. Pain affects all aspects of a person’s life: physically, emotionally, socially and financially. According to the ACA, it is the most common reason for missed work, negatively impacting employers and communities as a whole. Often times people suffering from back pain turn to drugs for temporary relief, and we are all well aware of the opioid crisis in this country. Given the fact that chiropractic care is a safe and effective option for back pain, chiropractors are in a key position to make a positive impact both with the patients they care for and their communities.
