Guidelines on Disaster Service for DCs Provides Useful Information to Volunteers

The American Chiropractic Association’s Policy Quality Review Committee (PQRC) has been performing an extensive review of all ACA policies.  The public-facing policy center on the website is also in the process of being reorganized and will be available soon.  As part of the review, the "Disaster Scene - Primary Care Providers" policy was ratified by the House of Delegates in January and reassigned as the "Guidelines for Disaster Service by Doctors of Chiropractic." The guideline provides useful information, including basic skills needed, to those who have an interest in volunteer work with emergency preparedness or disaster response teams and proposes a sample plan for how ACA and state associations might work together during a local crisis response.
