Talk:Chiropractic sources

This page was added by me, courtesy of Drsjpdc, pursuant to discussions with the Executive Director, and with his approval. The idea is to link OurMed (for medical articles) with a sister site, [WikiChiro] for all things Chiropractic, and this article linked from the main page's sidebar, becomes OurMed's portal.

Thank you Stephen for all the work to import, source and format this article!  To date, OurMed has built up a repository of conventional medicinal topics and this Chiropractic  article  falls into more of an alternative and complimentary form, at least in the United States.  This fits under the OurMed mission but will probably call for an even greater level of scruitiny and sourcing.  But until we upgrade our MediaWiki software, we will not enjoy the benefits of having templates easily copied from with attributes to Wikipedia and other free license sources.  As the source for this article is largely from Wikipedia.Org and WikiChiro.Org, it might be good to source other material to bring credibility.  One source, within the US Government's National Institute of Health, is the National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine and I'd like to see references from their article on Chiropractic Healthcare.  At this time however, OurMed is still confirming what is acceptable to use under PubMed's licensing (reference Dr. Rob Logan's (U.S. National Library of Medicine) comments in the minutes from the 1-15-10 community call).  Our goal down the road is to have healthcare professionals that are experts within their field of practice, validate articles.  Credit is to the contributor, Dr. Stephen Press is a Chiropractic Physician with an extensive international background, I'd be interested in where in other countries Chiropractic healthcare is practiced and accepted.  Having statistics of patients undergoing this care both in the US and abroad will bring crediblity to the scope of this form of healthcare.  Greg Miller, 20 January 2010
