Contribute an article

This initiative is an online format in which every 2 weeks, peer-reviewed, unbiased, evidence-based, practice-changing articles are posted on the website and emailed to over 16,000 physicians. Articles on “This Changed My Practice” are designed for rapid consumption, typically taking 5—10 minutes to read (700–1000 words). TCMP reflective learning activities for each article are certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) for 0.25 Mainpro+ certified self-learning credits and accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada  (RCPSC) for 0.25 MOC Section 2 Self-Learning: Scanning Activity per article.

You can email your article, biography, disclosures, and mitigating statements directly to Please also fill out the online copyright license agreement and biography and disclosures form. Our physician editorial team will provide you with feedback in order to finalize your article.

Please only use one of these sets of headings:

Practice change headings

  1. What I did before
  2. What changed my practice
  3. What I do now
  4. Resources for patients (if applicable)
  5. Resources for health-care providers (if applicable)
  6. References (AMA style)

Practice tip headings (in a case where nothing specifically changed your practice, but you have noticed a frequent care gap or question you are asked)

  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. Resources for patients (if applicable)
  5. Resources for health-care providers (if applicable)
  6. References (AMA style)

We will provide reference links via UBC and CPSBC libraries. Please be aware that we accept no industry funding for this initiative. Once the article is finalized, it will be scheduled to be posted on the website and emailed to our subscribers to help influence practice change and provide resources. Our readers will then have an opportunity to vote on the article’s impact on their practice and post questions and comments. After a couple of weeks, we’ll invite you to respond to 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. Your disclosures and mitigating statements will be added to the article and your biography.

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) ______
