Abstract

We review the public accreditation reports of 11 Chiropractic institutions which were evaluated by the European Council on Chiropractic Education and reveal themes which are reflected in the outcomes of the reports. These themes arise from the analysis of key areas of commendations, recommendations, and causes for concern. The identification of these themes is advantageous to institutions as they provide not only a guide for good practice but also an alert against those issues which are the most common problems and allow institutions to be proactive in addressing them. We conclude with two checklists to enable institutions to quickly determine whether they have avoided the common errors and what they might consider doing to take them beyond merely acceptable standards.
