Each issue of TIHC focuses on a particular theme. Although many of the articles are invited, we also welcome unsolicited manuscripts with original research, Grand Rounds, clinical briefs and “fast facts” collections. All submissions are peer-reviewed. For the spring 2012 issue, the theme “Integrative approaches to chronic disease prevention and management” is tentatively scheduled.

The Winter 2011 issue of Topics in Integrative Health Care presents articles of interest to both clinicians and educators. These include a description of the methodology for a large randomized controlled trial comparing physical therapy to chiropractic protocols for the treatment of balance disorders in older adults with or without chronic low back pain. Also included is a comparison of chiropractic students’ attitudes at 4 different chiropractic institutions to interdisciplinary collaboration, to assess whether students at chiropractic institutions training multiple complementary professions differ from chiropractic institutions providing only chiropractic training. We also feature a clinical brief on acromegaly, and a commentary from the perspective of a chiropractic student on the future of his profession.
 
We invite readers to contribute clinical briefs, as well as citations for “Fast Facts,” a feature included in every issue. We also welcome concept proposals for “Grand Rounds,” in which a complex case is presented and discussants from various disciplines give their perspective on treatment.
 
We hope you will find something of interest in the journal and that you will share this with others and encourage them to use this new and valuable online resource.
