For those wishing to attend MBCPM™ Course, a physician’s or nurse practitioner’s referral is required for admission to this trauma-informed course. Some facilitators, such as non MDs in private practice, are not covered by the Provincial Health Plan and there may be a course fee in addition to a materials fee. Some facilitators may be covered by extended benefits plans.
For referral to alumni courses, a physician’s/nurse practitioner’s referral is only required if more than a year has passed since the last enrolment.
Information for Physicians
One-to-one consultations are usually not done by the facilitator, so please do not include patient history packages. A brief diagnosis on the application form is appreciated.

The Referral Process
Once the referral for MBCPM™ basic course has been received, the prospective participant would be contacted by staff of the facilitator, usually near to the time a course is being offered.
Admission to the course will depend on the patient’s proximity to a site that is hosting a course and the number of people enrolled at that site.
