IPC Guidance

Although infection prevention and control (IPC) guidance agreed by the four UK nations remains under constant review, it has not been updated following the lifting of legal restrictions around COVID-19 that commenced today, Monday 19th July 2021. This means that the guidance, as issued on 1st June 2021, is still current and that, to ensure patient and staff safety is maintained, practising Chiropractors should continue to have robust, risk-assessed, infection prevention and control measures in place. Chiropractors should also monitor any updates to the IPC guidance.

RCC Research Committee Bulletin

Status

RCC Research Committee Bulletin

Global summit on SMT

A new RCC Research Committee Bulletin, available here, summarises a recent study that reviewed the evidence for the efficacy and effectiveness of Spinal Manipuative Therapy (SMT) for the treatment of non-musculoskeletal conditions. The findings and limitations of the study are discussed.

New National Restrictions

Status

New National Restrictions (to reduce the spread of coronavirus)

The new national restrictions that apply in England from today until Wednesday 2 December 2020 are designed to reduce the spread of coronavirus and thus reduce pressure on the NHS, whilst allowing schools and universities to remain open and as many people as possible to continue to work. During this period, people are being asked to stay at home and avoid meeting people they do not live with. Some businesses are required to close, but Chiropractic clinics are permitted to remain open, along with other healthcare services (p32 #47).

To ensure patient and public safety is maintained, Chiropractors who continue to provide care during this time should do so with robust risk-assessed procedures in place that take into account the use of appropriate Personal Protective Equipment.

The General Chiropractic Council has outlined its expectations of registrants in its November newsletter and the RCC recommends that Chiropractors follow the detailed advice provided by their Professional Association.

Latest Covid-19 Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Guidance
