WorkSafeBC medical advisors (MAs) and nurse advisors (NAs) are a valuable resource for physicians with injured worker patients. 

MAs and NAs review clinical information relevant to WorkSafeBC claims, and while MAs occasionally examine injured workers, they do not replace the primary treating physician.

The following is a directory of MAs and NAs throughout the province. The contact information is for physicians only—please do not provide these names or numbers to anyone else. Injured worker patients with questions regarding a WorkSafeBC claim should contact their case managers.

Physicians with questions regarding an injured worker patient should contact an MA in the nearest WorkSafeBC office. If your question could be better answered by one of our industry-specific experts, the MA will give you the appropriate name and contact information.

Physicians can also contact all medical advisors and nurse advisors by calling toll free 888 967-5377 from anywhere in BC or Alberta, then using the last four numbers of the individual’s phone number as the extension.

Above is the information needed to cite this article in your paper or presentation. The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) recommends the following citation style, which is the now nearly universally accepted citation style for scientific papers:
Halpern SD, Ubel PA, Caplan AL, Marion DW, Palmer AM, Schiding JK, et al. Solid-organ transplantation in HIV-infected patients. N Engl J Med. 2002;347:284-7.

About the ICMJE and citation styles

The ICMJE is small group of editors of general medical journals who first met informally in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1978 to establish guidelines for the format of manuscripts submitted to their journals. The group became known as the Vancouver Group. Its requirements for manuscripts, including formats for bibliographic references developed by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), were first published in 1979. The Vancouver Group expanded and evolved into the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), which meets annually. The ICMJE created the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals to help authors and editors create and distribute accurate, clear, easily accessible reports of biomedical studies.

An alternate version of ICMJE style is to additionally list the month an issue number, but since most journals use continuous pagination, the shorter form provides sufficient information to locate the reference. The NLM now lists all authors.

BCMJ standard citation style is a slight modification of the ICMJE/NLM style, as follows:

  • Only the first three authors are listed, followed by "et al."
  • There is no period after the journal name.
  • Page numbers are not abbreviated.
