Guidelines for TMS
TMS ACT adheres to the guidelines developed by the Royal Australian and New Zealand Collage of Psychiatry, who’s professional practice guidelines on the application of TMS therapy can be read here:
Although TMS can be used for the treatment of a variety of psychiatric conditions, we are at this point using it exclusively for the management of treatment resistant depression. Patients should have trailed several antidepressant medications prior to being referred and we do not treat anyone who has a pacemaker, is pregnant, or has a history of seizures. Other medical conditions such as head injuries and devices such as cranial implants and pins, will be assessed on a case by case basis.
Our team has been trained by the Black Dog Institute through The Sydney TMS Treatment & Neurostimulation Centre. If you have any queries about our practice or protocols, or would like to see a demonstration please get in touch with our office.
