Ketamine - Referral Information

Our centre has worked with the CPSO to develop appropriate best practice guidelines for providing ketamine therapy for patients with mood disorders.

For Psychiatrists

We offer two pathways for your patients:

1. Consulting Pathway - Our affiliated academic psychiatrists are consulted and assume 

assessment and follow up of the patient pertaining to ketamine therapy. On completion of their ketamine therapy, care will be transferred back to the referring psychiatrist. 

 

2. Affiliation Pathway - For psychiatrists comfortable with ketamine therapy and wanting to stay involved during treatment. The referring psychiatrist remains actively involved monitoring the mood condition while the physicians at our centre will be the MRP responsible for the ketamine administration. As part of this we require that the referring physician complete an OHP affiliation form with the CPSO. 

For Family Physicians

 

Our affiliated academic psychiatrists are consulted and assume assessment and follow up of the patient pertaining to ketamine therapy. On completion of their ketamine therapy, care will be transferred back to family physician when deemed appropriate by our psychiatry team. 

 

For Patients Wanting To Self Refer

We require that patients wanting to self refer have either an active family doctor or psychiatrist involved in their care. We recommend that your family doctor make the referral however if you are actively cared for by a family doctor we can work with you to get an appropriate treatment plan in place between our psychiatrists and your family doctor.
