Now you can experience clinical scenarios as they unfold. Enjoy the adventure! Consider including colleagues from a variety of backgrounds. Focus on good rest, exercise, and nutrition in the days leading up to your national exam. They may have some experience in the writing of Mock SAMPs! Many older “SAMP -like” questions are in circulation.Less likely, but possible is a question about the “best” or gold standard. Questions may test your knowledge of guidelines published up to the end of December of the year before you write your exam. How would you treat a patient in your office? This may be particularly challenging for Residents whose first language is not English. Get help early. If you consider using resources from the United States and other countries, remember that the units will be different, guidelines may differ, and management approaches may differ. Use with caution!! These modules provide evidence based reviews of many topics in a format for group discussion. There are many resources out there to help you prepare for the CCFP exam. However, we teach you what to focus on, highlight the important Canadian guidelines, help you with easy-to-remember pearls, and give you strategies and tools to prepare for the exam. Others prefer to have it as a sort of final review of all 105 topics prior to the exam. It all depends on your study style. Check out the list below for the top resources. In 2018, we completed a nationwide survey of nearly 500 residents and practice-eligible candidates to find out what they recommend as the best CCFP exam prep resources.

Common reasons for such hesitation include limited exposure to the process of conducting research and the belief that research is best conducted by academic scholars. Our intent here is to encourage clinically focused family physicians’ involvement in research activities by explaining how they can cultivate inquisitiveness so as to develop questions for exploration.

We present an approach to research that focuses on five steps emergent from the day-to-day, habitual practice of family medicine, wherever in the world it is practised. We illustrate this approach by describing a successful practice-based research study. We conclude by inviting all family physicians to consider integrating research into their practice lives so as to expand their professional horizons and help educate the next generation of global family physicians.These kinds of questions can only be addressed through resource-dependent, systems-oriented, methodologically complex investigations consuming of much time, energy and money. 9 Some will, as well, conduct research studies. This special issue is focused on making effective research methodologies accessible to those working in venues other than major academic settings. In this article, we target family physicians who are first and foremost clinicians and may only occasionally engage in research activities. We mean to encourage their universal involvement in research endeavours, and illustrate how they can both cultivate an inquisitive mindset and develop questions for exploration using the methodologies presented. Accordingly, we redefine family medicine research for use by such occasional investigators, present a rationale for its importance and propose an approach by which all family physicians can easily integrate a structured curiosity into their practice lives. Research for clinically focused family physicians Research redefined We define practice-based research for clinically focused family physicians as the process by which they ask and answer questions relating to the process, context and outcome of their work with patients and families, as well as those pertaining to the organisational milieus in which they practise. It is thus part and parcel of being a curious clinician in day-to-day practice.

For occasional investigators, research helps nurture a wide-eyed openness to seeing things from new perspectives. It enables family physicians to create, out of their daily office environments, laboratory for creative exploration that can serve multiple goals. Goals redefined Just as the interests of clinically focused physician investigators are likely different from those of their colleagues in academic settings, so too are their goals. Several goals are particularly suited to their needs as occasional investigators. These include the following: Developing habits of ongoing reflection in practice, exploring both failures and successes, and analysing why things go wrong as well as why they go right—these are key elements of relational continuity in family medicine and quality assurance, and often play equal parts in patients’ and practitioners’ lives over time. Improving the quality of practice-based evidence in order to enhance the ongoing work of community-based family physicians. Nurturing personal areas of interest in family medicine, growing skills and knowledge that help one become a mini-expert who acts as a consultant for other physicians in collaborative group practice environments, as is common in the several parts of the world. Sustaining interest in the practice of medicine, especially during a time when many family physicians feel burdened by the bureaucratic aspects of our work, including charting, coding and attending to multitudinous (and often conflicting) practice standards. Building relational links with others, whether with laypeople in the community or colleagues in academic institutions. A question-oriented approach Typical research generally follows a scientific process of posing questions, collecting and analysing data, and reporting results. Such research characteristically emphasises specific methodologies (appropriately matched to the questions posed), systems-level outcomes and processes, and practice-based network behaviours.

It focuses on generalisability and group outcomes as final outcomes. However, attending to this process and addressing these concerns may feel overly daunting to individual family physicians in clinical practice. Due to their high volume of patient care duties, their daily concentration on presenting concerns and their embeddedness in community settings, these same clinically focused family physicians are well suited to generating insight and innovative solutions to important clinical concerns emerging from practice. Hence, we suggest the adaptation of an alternative approach for family medicine investigators who are focused on issues of clinical immediacy. This alternative approach focuses on five inquisitive steps that come up in the day-to-day, habitual practice of family medicine (see figure 1.) They are not complicated, and one needs no sophisticated training in research methodologies to employ them.These five action steps, and the questions that support them, include the following: This step is one of employing an awareness born of being a participant observer. A participant observer is someone who is simultaneously involved in the process of being a family physician and noticing what is occurring in the practice environment, using critical reflection as a key tool in the process. Inquisitiveness is the human quality of being intellectually and emotionally curious as to why events occur, and can be followed up by refining and honing concerns into practical enquiries. Will it change my practice. Asking these questions will help incidental investigators assess the importance of their research endeavours, especially given their intrinsic interests, the time constraints present in day-to-day work and their assessment of potential benefits.

This step is a review of the extant literature, examining whether other people have already explored the hypothesis, to what extent and to what conclusion; assessing whether research will continue to fill in gaps in practical knowledge is also part of this step. The next steps There are several additional steps critical to completing research studies in family medicine. These have been covered in detail elsewhere, and generally are more technical in nature. For the incidental investigator, these activities will likely occur in consultation with others. They include the following: While biomedical training often prioritises quantitative research, 13 qualitative investigations may be more germane to the interests of clinically focused investigators. 14 These include methods such as intensive case-oriented analyses, narrative studies and observational ethnographies (all of which differ from quantitative ones). 15 In this step investigators assess existing and projected interests, appropriate skillsets, time, and money. Investigative review boards are now commonplace in many countries, and having a working knowledge of their process and function is important. 16 Understanding the peer review process is critical to forestalling concerns about the likely necessity of rewriting and other issues related to the challenges of publishing. 18 19 In it, the first author (WV) discusses his experiences in investigating how the electronic health record (EHR) and examination room computers (ERCs) affected communication between family physicians and their patients. In 1996, back when I was in full-time practice, I was introduced to EHRs. With a lot of fanfare and scant preparation, my partners and I were greeted one day with the presence of computers in our examination rooms. We were told that these ERCs were the future of family medicine, that they would revolutionise the care we provided patients—and little else. It was up to us, for the most part, to figure out how to use them.

Several years later, still not at all confident that I had successfully incorporated either ERCs or the EHR into my care with patients, I asked the question: How do we use these things, and how can we use them effectively to enhance patient care. I knew why ERCs and EHRs were there (an institutional decision) and when they had arrived (5 years previously), but as I conducted my work with patients in a relatively solitary fashion I had no idea what others were doing to integrate these tools into their daily flow of practice. I looked up what was known: at that time, relatively little. There was a lot of hype about EHRs, and an almost equal amount of fear. Quantitative studies showed neither a universal acceptance for EHR use nor a complete rejection: respondents generally exhibited both satisfaction and dissatisfaction in equal measures. A few theoretical articles described their potential use, yet there was almost nothing that I, a busy family physician, could put to practical use to cultivate my competency at using the EHR, let alone assuage my continued angst. “So what?” I then asked. My answer, not surprisingly, was clear: I had to do something, or else my frustrations with my perceived inability to be a proficient user of ERCs and EHRs would grow; with those frustrations I could envision my satisfaction with being a family physician diminishing. From those starts, my incidental investigation emerged. I borrowed the anthropological method of ethnography to explore my questions, mostly by observing other clinicians using ERCs during office visits and asking them, immediately afterwards, about that use. I also conducted some focus groups. Nothing rocket science. Along the way, I was fortunate both to receive a small grant that supported some investigative help and publish the written results.

20 21 I can, however, say that my incidental journey of investigation opened up my eyes in many ways, including how to transform questions into answers, through research in family medicine. Discussion The work of clinicians in practice is commonly different from the work of academic researchers. So, too, are their motivations to conduct research and the way that they are likely to go about it. In this article we have redefined the definition of research for use by clinically focused family medicine physicians, from one of exploring wide norms to examining specific, relevant understandings. We have examined several research goals appropriate to their particular needs. We have also enumerated a five-step, question-oriented approach to getting started as an occasional researcher in family medicine, and illustrated the application of this approach by means of a case study that reviews the organic process of conducting an investigation. We hope others will consider our approach useful as they look to conduct research in their own right. We are aware that for this to happen, practising family physicians will need to feel motivated to incorporate research, using our definition above or any other alternative, into their work lives. We believe several key encouraging reasons exist for consideration. First, their work on the front lines of community-based patient care gives them unique perspectives within the culture of medicine, perspectives that emerge from creative engagement with their day-to-day activities. Systematically exploring these practice-oriented perspectives may enhance the value these perspectives deserve. These moments, and the thoughtful process by which they emerged, may well work as worthy buttresses against the spectre of burn-out. Third, such practice-embedded investigations may challenge conventional perceptions about research, about where it is conducted, what is studied and how it is presented.

They may open up new ways of appreciating the challenges, and the worth, of primary care practice. Last, this kind of incidental investigative approach may encourage the kind of reflective practice in which family physicians come to see each patient as a chance to grow and learn, well beyond the basic responsibilities of diagnosis and treatment. These reasons mirror the historical research activities of several community-based family physicians. We believe those who adopt such an observational intent—based on the questions we suggest above—will inevitably be drawn to exploring deeply important questions that arise out of their daily work. We believe they will find passionate meaning in learning and sharing the insights they uncover in the process. 11 All we have done here is to provide a plan for these clinicians, these incidental investigators, to get started down this path of research, redefined. Limitations We recognise there are limitations to our plan, a stepwise approach that emerged from our own experiences with practice-based research. There is, for example, little data on how many family physicians in practice are already doing informal research, or whether those conducting such research would concur with the approach above. Knowledge of these data would likely influence our suggestions. As well, our incidental investigator approach focuses on individual attitudes and behaviours. Structural changes—the development of formal mechanisms by which practising physicians could document, disseminate and highlight their daily observations—might also aid in the evolution of research by practising family physicians. We encourage interested readers to build on our ideas as they grow their practices as generative laboratories for exploring the here and now of everyday interactions with patients and their families. Conclusion All family physicians can participate in research, as we have defined it.

In this article, we have offered five steps by which incidental investigators can get started in research based on habits of awareness, inquisitiveness and systematic exploration. We suggest that conceptualising and implementing research in this way can help family physicians expand their professional horizons, sustain interest in their practice environments and help them inform the next generation of family physicians as to the realities of everyday practice in family medicine.

Two days were spent writing the CFPC portion and one day would be dedicated to the OSCE. Now, the exam has become de-harmonized. This means that R2s will write the OSCE component in the fall and the CFPC portion in the spring of their graduating year. The CFPC website has practice SAMPs available, as do many of your program officesMany of these have two to three practice SAMPs at the end of the multiple choice section. Lots of marks are given for integrating the patient’s personal circumstances and how they influence the presenting complaint. Develop a set way of asking these questions. Some residents use the acronym FIFER.Use books like “The Edmonton Manual,” which is divided up into various specialty sections with multiple OSCE scenarios and marking schemes. Communicate these with your preceptor and use your time in the office to improve these skills. At the end of the multiple choice questions there are often two to three SAMP style questions, which are great additional practice. Residency will bring about a new set of opportunities, expectations and challenges.
