Grants are awarded to carry out demonstration projects in which chiropractors and physicians collaborate to identify and provide effective treatment for spinal and lower-back conditions. Among other requirements, the project must: (1) address the identification and treatment of spinal and/or lower-back conditions; (2) be founded on collaborative efforts between chiropractors and allopathic or osteopathic physicians; (3) include a strong research protocol which will result in a significant expansion of documented research in the area addressed and which is suitable for publication in refereed health professions journals, including research oriented publications; (4) include an explicit strategy for case-finding and a strategy for making direct comparisons to other forms of treatment. The results must be generalizable to patients cared for in clinical practices addressing spinal and/or lower-back conditions; and (5) include, whenever feasible, minorities and women in study populations so that research findings can be of benefit to all persons at risk of the disease, disorder, or condition under study.
