Help Update the LBP Practice Guideline

CCGPP document available for review / comment until April 6.

By Editorial Staff

The Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters has announced the release of an updated Clinical Practice Guideline for Chiropractic Management of Low Back Pain for stakeholder review and comment. The draft document, as well as instructions on submitting comments and other information, is available online until April 6, 2015.

Periodic guideline review (every five years) and validation via stakeholder review / comment is mandated for inclusion in the National Guideline Clearinghouse. The council anticipates that the final updated guideline will be published later this year.

"An important part of CPG development requires the assistance of stakeholders," stated the council. "This document is a draft and subject to revision based on specific criteria. We welcome your feedback regarding this draft document, but readers are cautioned that any substantive changes in conclusions or recommendations will be made solely by the independent CCGPP Commission, and based only on submission of relevant documentation sufficient to support a change in conclusion.

All stakeholder changes suggested will go back to the original Delphi panel and be accepted after completing the rigorous consensus and review process."

All current practice guidelines are available online on the CCGPP website. Click here for direct access.
