Abstract


The vision of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) is to establish and advance the chiropractic family wellness lifestyle on a global basis. Guided by this vision, the research arm of the ICPA is mandated to defend and promote the chiropractic care of children, women’s health and general family wellness care. The ICPA Practice Based Research Network (PBRN) was designed to support this vision and mission. Grounded by Participatory Action Research and the principles of evidence-informed practice, the ICPA PBRN remains the most successful practice-based research network in the chiropractic profession. With its ongoing studies, the ICPA PBRN continues to address issues relevant to the chiropractic care of children, pregnant women and general family wellness care.
