Sample Page Title

There will be little doubt in anybody’s minds that the 2020 launch of the Canadian Medical Follow Pointers on Grownup Weight problems, a abstract of which was printed in CMAJ, represents each a landmark and a watershed in weight problems drugs. 

Inside 48 hours of its launch, it acquired over 80 miillion media impressions around the globe and the CMAJ abstract was the #1 downloaded article on the CMAJ web site in 2020. 

Simply how massive the affect of those tips had been, is maybe greatest mirrored by the latest “thanks” notice to the authors from Kirsten Patrick, Editor-in-Chief of the CMAJ, which notes:

I’m writing to thanks for contributing to CMAJ’s doubling its Influence Issue (IF) on this yr’s report! CMAJ’s 2021 IF is 16.859. The highly-influential Guideline that you just and your colleagues printed in CMAJ in 2020 contributed to this large leap. Thanks for selecting CMAJ on your publication. I hope you’ll select us once more.”

In actual fact, in accordance with Google Scholar, the rules have already been cited in over 150 articles and downloads of the PDF from the CMAJ web site continues at a gradual clip of over 2000 a month.  

This quite spectacular consideration to those medical apply tips (usually a quite mundane occasion that hardly ever catches the eye of lay media), is testomony to the large efforts and forward-thinking method taken by the over 60 authors, who in 19 chapters structure our present considering and proof for addressing weight problems as a continual illness in medical apply. 

Whereas I congratulate CMAJ on this spectacular leap in its affect issue, I can solely hope that this consideration is mirrored within the implementation of the over 80 suggestions by payers and well being authorities in addition to any well being practitioners concerned in weight problems care.

As our information continues to advance, I sit up for the persevering with updates of those tips to make sure that these advances proceed to enhance the lives of the individuals residing with weight problems.
