VERY WELL DONE to Jonathan Field, DC, PhD, who was awarded the prestigious ‘Chiropractor of the Year Award’ at the British Chiropractic Association’s Autumn Conference this weekend.
This award is extremely well-deserved after years of tireless clinical and research work. Perhaps one of the UK’s leading chiropractic researchers, Jonathan is probably best-known for his work designing and implementing CareResponse. A user-friendly, evidence-based system that collects essential Patient Reported Outcome Measures, CareResponse is a fantastic data collection tool that is now widely used by clinicians worldwide.
Jonathan has recently started in his role as Visiting Research Fellow at the prestigious University of Southampton. A CRC-funded post, Jonathan will be investigating the implementation of chiropractic care into existing NHS care pathways, as well as exploring potential new roles, such as the First Contact Practitioner, in the delivery of MSK and spine care services in primary practice. This research is not only hugely relevant to the chiropractic profession, but is highly impactful to the wider healthcare community as it explores effective ways to ease the burden that MSK and spinal complaints place on our already overstretched healthcare systems.
Huge congratulations, Jonathan! You rock! 👏👏👏
