This article focuses on the Association of Chiropractic Colleges/Research Agenda Conference, recently held in Las Vegas, Nevada. According to Robert Mootz, a chiropractic practitioner, the conference came up with several priority areas for future research in this field. These are: to improve information on measuring and predicting the quality of chiropractic care; to refine and develop strategies to perform meaningful cost studies of chiropractic care; and barriers that might exist to appropriate utilization of chiropractic services should be determined.
