Your GP/psychiatrist will refer you to us for TMS therapy. A team member will contact you to book your first appointment.
2. INITIAL REVIEW & TMS PRESCRIPTION
Our TMS Psychiatrist will have an in-depth review with you to ensure you are safe to proceed, obtain informed consent and prescribe the appropriate TMS therapy protocol.
3. MAPPING & RESTING MOTOR THRESHOLD
Our TMS Psychiatrist and TMS Technician will perform mapping and determine the RMT prior to the first treatment session. This can be done in advance or on the same day as the first treatment session.
4. ACUTE TREATMENT PHASE
You will receive TMS up to 5 times per week for 20-30 sessions, delivered by our TMS Technicians. During this time, we will regularly check to see if you’re responding well to treatment.
5. ONGOING TREATMENT PHASE
Our TMS Psychiatrist will review you and assess the need for further TMS sessions (up to 35 total if under Medicare).
Our TMS Psychiatrist will write a detailed treatment summary on discharge. If required, you may have maintenance therapy at a reduced frequency.
