CAA National set a strategic pillar to support research and contribute to the evidence base of the profession. In the nine financial years since 2009/10 and projected to the end of 2017/18, CAA National has invested $1.5 million in tertiary education and research in Australia with the most recent initiatives being the ACORN Project and PhD scholarships.
We are pleased to announce that Dr John Petrozzi and Dr Carlo Rinaudo have been successfully awarded scholarships for a three-year period commencing in 2018. John will be investigating the 'Management of Chronic Low Back Pain in Primary Manual Therapy Practice' whilst Carlo will be investigating 'Clinical Trials of the Incremental Adaptation Technique on the Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex (VOR) in Patients with Peripheral Vestibular Hypofunction'. We wish them well in their research.
CAA National Indigenous Study Grant
It is with great pride that CAA announce Brad Morgan from CQUniversity as the inaugural recipient of the CAA National Indigenous Study Grant. Brad is currently in his third year of study at the Mackay campus and believes being a chiropractor will provide him with the greatest scope of practice and opportunity to serve the community. Brad is a proud Aboriginal man who has a great story to tell and believes that he can make a difference. We look forward to hearing about his story and following his journey. I also wish to thank Donna Murray, CEO of Indigenous Allied Health Australia, for supporting and guiding our initiative.
