Key Drivers – Practice Style – Cohort Data

This chart presents the result distribution based on Cohorts of respondents, grouped by Practice Style. The Practice Style was on a continuum from Vitalistic to Multidisciplinary / Integrated and was self-identified by survey respondents.

Like in the ‘Key Drivers – Average Data’ chart, it combines responses to three questions to create an interactive scatter plot. This visualization shows response data as it relates to all 19 drivers.

Note: Drivers are defined as major events, trends, developments, catalysts or forces that actively influence or cause change. You can identify the driver and the cohort by hovering over each bubble of data. You can also filter out individual drivers by using the filters on the right-hand side.

The chart is structured as follows:

  • X – axis – Nature of Impact (SCALE: -5 = Very Negative; +5 = Very Positive) – NATURE OF IMPACT – Do you think expected changes (over the next 10 years) in each of these drivers, will have a positive or negative impact on the chiropractic profession?
  • Y-axis – Preparedness to adapt to change (SCALE: -5 = Not at all prepared); +5 = Very well prepared)PREPAREDNESS – How well prepared is the chiropractic profession to adapt to changes in these drivers?
  • Size of Circle – Importance of Driver (SCALE: 1 = Not at all important; 10 = Critically important) IMPORTANCE – How important do you think the following drivers are in shaping the future of the chiropractic profession (looking out to 2030)?

Key things to note:

  • Like the Years in Practice cohort groups, the cohort split on practice style is remarkably uniform. The responses to the questions about the drivers shows strong communality between the scoring by cohort groups.
  • Overall, this suggests there may be similarly held views about the drivers across the profession.
