Assessing cultural competency among Canadian chiropractors: a cross-sectional survey of Canadian Chiropractic Association members - Chiropractic & Manual Therapies

January 13, 2023

The results of our study suggest a potential lack of optimal cultural competency training that is practical and applicable to chiropractors. This may be a significant opportunity for chiropractic organizations (e.g., colleges, regulators, associations) to impact the cultural competency of the chiropractic workforce. Although we did not find differences in DEI training between gender, it is possible that prior DEI training is a mediating factor for differences noted in gender. Future research should consider historical, societal, or environmental factors that may explain if DEI training is more effective among women, or if women are more likely to pursue DEI training. Future studies should incorporate a mixed methods research design to explore the complexity of cultural competency in more detail.
