Abstract: Objective: To summarise the key findings of the 2007 New Zealand College of Chiropractic Stakeholders Advisory Committee survey of the New Zealand chiropractic profession. Method: The survey questionnaire comprised 50 questions divided into 5 sections: the chiropractic practitioner, the chiropractic practice, professional functions and referrals, accident compensation and the chiropractic patient. Hard copy surveys were mailed to all 306 chiropractors with a New Zealand postal address who were issued with an Annual Practising Certificate during the 2005/2006 year. Chiropractors were invited to either complete the hard copy survey or complete the survey online using an electronic version. Summary: 152 chiropractors responded to the survey. The results indicate there is a desire amongst the profession to increase the number of chiropractors in New Zealand. They also suggest that, despite the lack of mandate by the New Zealand Chiropractic Board for a set minimum number of continuing education hours, most New Zealand chiropractors appear to be engaging in a satisfactory level of continuing education.
