At this time World Spine Care has developed clinical protocols that have been implemented in the pilot programs in Shoshong and Mahalapye, Botswana and Moca, Dominican Republic, and Accra, Ghana. Treatment provided in all clinics will follow evidence-based protocols as established by the clinical team. Each clinic is involved in a research program to monitor and evaluate outcomes. World Spine Care has currently established the following volunteer and educational programs:
Clinic Supervisors function as a primary spine provider, managing a World Spine Care clinic for at least 14 months. They collaborate with the local healthcare facilities to provide integrative spine care to the community.
Volunteer Associates visit a World Spine Care clinic for 4 weeks or more and assist the Clinic Supervisor in providing primary spine care to the community.
The World Spine Care Dr. Shannon Bloch Volunteer Grant offers financial assistance to qualified chiropractors based in North America who wish to volunteer as a Clinical Supervisor at one of the WSC Botswana Clinics and who can demonstrate a financial need, related to student debt. Learn more:
