The Canadian Chiropractic Research Foundation (CCRF) is the profession’s national research funding organization. Its primary objective is to improve the health of Canadians through research and innovation into spinal health care.
The CCRF has been instrumental in establishing chiropractic Research Chairs and Professorships at universities across the country. Its financial grants also assist doctors of chiropractic to obtain their Masters and PhD degrees and to establish themselves in multi-disciplinary research positions. This is one of the ways in which the profession continually nurtures a research culture that informs quality, evidence-based, patient care.
