"What is Regulation"

STANDARDIZED ASSOCIATION CONTENT

A very important part of having a successful website, is well-written content; content that gives your visitors more information about your clinic, your practice, as well as any other important pieces that you would like to share (including intake forms, health & nutritional guides, etc.).

If you do not already have website content that you would like to use on your new website, you can utilize any page from our Standardized Content. These are generically written pages that apply to everyone in our practice. You can use all or some of these, or a combination of these pages and your own. Just let your developer know during the set up process.

What is Regulation

Being regulated means that chiropractors in Alberta must obey all legislative requirements set by the government for all health care providers. Other health care providers that are regulated include nurses, dentists, medical doctors and optometrists. 

In Alberta, the Health Professions Act ensures all regulated health care providers:

  • are educated and trained properly
  • practice within a defined scope of practice
  • adhere to strict standards of practice
  • hold liability protection/coverage
  • meet competency standards
  • are accountable to a regulatory organization

The Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors (ACAC) is entrusted with enforcing the requirements set by government for all chiropractors. To be a chiropractor in Alberta, you must be a member, in good standing, with the ACAC.
