This initiative is an online format in which every 2 weeks, peer-reviewed, unbiased, practice-changing articles are posted on the website and emailed to over 10,000 subscribed physicians. TCMP is accredited by the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) for 0.25 Mainpro+ study credits and by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) for 0.25 MOC Section 2 Self-Learning: Scanning Activity for each posting.

The articles on “This Changed My Practice” are designed for rapid consumption, typically taking 5 minutes to read (700 – 1000 words). Please use only these headings:


  1. What I did before
  2. What changed my practice
  3. What I do now
  4. References and/or Additional reading
  5. Handouts for Patients (if applicable)

OR, in a case where nothing specifically changed your practice, but you have noticed a frequent care gap or question you are asked, you could write a “Practice Tip”:

  1. What care gaps or frequently asked questions I have noticed
  2. Data that answers these questions or gaps
  3. What I recommend (practice tip)
  4. References and/or Additional reading
  5. Handouts for Patients (if applicable)

Please be aware that we accept no industry funding for this initiative. Once the article is finalized, it will be posted on the website and forwarded to our subscribers to help influence and give resources to practicing physicians. Our readers will then have an opportunity to vote on the article’s impact on their practice, and post questions or debate. After a couple of weeks, we’ll invite you to respond to those posted questions.

If you do have disclosures please add an explanation to your article and indicate which (you may choose several) bias-mitigating statements apply to your article. If these do not apply, please write in your own mitigating statement. Please note that if bias cannot be mitigated we cannot publish the article.

Mitigating Potential Bias:

  1. Only published trial data is presented
  2. Recommendations are consistent with published guidelines (indicate which guidelines)
  3. Recommendations are consistent with current practice patterns
  4. Treatments or recommendations in this article are unrelated to products/services/treatments involved in disclosure statements
  5. Other: _________ (please write your own statements) ______

Please contact us if you have any questions or need assistance with writing the article.

All suggestions are carefully considered. However, the program uses a set of factors to assign priority to certain topics.
