Dr. Coleman, long time Life West faculty member and practicing chiropractor, shares his deep understanding of ethics and California chiropractic law.  Here’s a new take on what is allowed and what isn’t; what is mandated and what is forbidden; what you must do and what you ought to do.  You’ll be surprised by what you discover, no matter how many years you’ve been in practice.

You’ll learn about:

  • Chiropractic Boards and how they operate
  • Contemporary ethics principles and codes
  • Scope of practice
  • Illegal practices
  • Use of laser
  • Medical necessity
  • Record keeping
  • Informed consent
  • Informed refusal
  • and more!


By the end of the seminar, you will be better able to:

  • Have a greater level of awareness rather than fear of safeguarding your practice and license
  • Manage patients and staff ethically
  • Set a world class standard of ethical excellence in your office and in the public’s eye
  • Navigate the Chiropractic Board and California chiropractic law
  • Understand that the responsibility of sharing chiropractic in the real world is more than just adjusting the spine, and what you as an individual chiropractor do in your office is a reflection on every chiropractor and the profession as a whole.

2 hours unless otherwise indicated.
