NEW ANXIETY PATHWAY

Anxiety and related disorders are among the most common seen in clinical practice, and a new pathway has been developed to support physicians caring for adults with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).

The anxiety pathway aims to help guide diagnosis and provide pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic management in the medical home. The anxiety pathway can be downloaded here.

This pathway is not designed to support questions about anxiety in pediatric, youth, geriatric or pregnant/breastfeeding patients. Questions about those patients can be directed to Specialist Link’s psychiatry tele-advice service.


Requesting Specialist Link tele-advice is simple: Visit specialistlink.ca and click on the desired speciality or sub-specialty. Enter a direct phone number or cell and have the patient’s personal health number at hand. Calls are returned within one hour. Tele-advice can also be requested by calling 403-910-2551.
