QV Chiropractic only collects information from our patients that are necessary to properly diagnose and treat their condition, and to follow up on their recovery.
QV Chiropractic aims to ensure that any information we hold is accurate, complete, and up to date.
The health information QV Chiropractic holds helps to provide our patients with the best possible health care, and is normally disclosed only to other health care practitioners – such as the patient’s doctor – involved in their treatment (or where disclosure is required by law). If QV Chiropractic needs to disclose information about a patient to people other than those associated with their treatment, we will seek the patient’s permission first.
QV Chiropractic has systems in place to protect the security of your health records. Your personal information will be kept secure at all times and is protected from misuse, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
In handling your personal information, QV Chiropractic is committed to complying with the Privacy Act 1988 and the National Privacy Principles (NPP) effective under the Privacy Amendment Act 2001, and operates in accordance with the Ethical Principles of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia.
QV Chiropractic recognizes that chiropractic care may not be suitable for everyone. Chiropractic care is not a treatment for ‘medical conditions’ however; concurrent care may be beneficial in some cases.
Due diligence will be undertaken to determine if chiropractic care is suitable for you and any risks will be discussed prior to any treatment. If you are unsuitable for care, appropriate referral will be provided.
