Client care is our main objective as a profession, and part of providing responsible care is to be as informed about all modalities and alternative treatment options available to our clients. It is imperative to understand what other health care treatment protocols involve if we are to make informed decisions regarding the referral of our clients for alternative and/or additional treatment.

Client care is our main objective as a profession, and part of providing responsible care is to be as informed about all modalities and alternative treatment options available to our clients. It is imperative to understand what other health care treatment protocols involve if we are to make informed decisions regarding the referral of our clients for alternative and/or additional treatment.

In order that the client, too, may make an informed choice about their treatment, we must be able to represent other professions’ scope of practice, and methods, to the best of our abilities. To facilitate and encourage information sharing we have presented a case study looking at a common scenario to four participating professions.

Each representative has independently presented information about their treatment protocol as well as their profession. These professions are Massage Therapy, Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, and Chiropractic.
