Agreement of Primary Outcomes in Chiropractic-Related Clinical Trials Registered in clinicaltrials.gov with Corresponding Publication. A modest rate of agreement (90.2%) between clinicaltrails.gov entries and the 102 published papers (59.6% publication rate) were found. While chiropractic-related clinical trials are fewer in number compared to medical trials, chiropractic-related research has a substantially better rate of primary and secondary outcome concordance with registered protocols and a better publication rate. Investigators need to continue to upload results onto clinicaltrials.gov and seek publication regardless of the study findings. It is important to publish negative results so as not to introduce publication bias into systematic reviews and meta-analyses. Both positive and negative findings are important when evaluating treatments and determining the best care for patients. #science #chiropractor #chiropractic #research #education #evidence based #patient centered #interprofessional #collaborative #rehabilitation #public health #spinal health #musculoskeletal health #ethics #pain #function #disability #QOL #knowledgetranslation
