How to Refer

For Canadian Patients:

If you want to have a consult with the NAIT team to discuss clinical trial options for your child, please discuss with your primary oncologist/team.

Only referrals from your child’s treating oncologist will be accepted for review.

Once our team has reviewed the referral information, we will be in contact with you and your health care team to request additional information and/or to set up an initial face to face meeting or telemedicine conference meeting for a consultation.   

For International Patients: 

If you are a parent or family member living outside of Canada, please complete the referral form  with the assistance from your primary oncologist.

For additional information, please see SickKids International Patient Program or contact the International Patient Program at: international.patientprogram@sickkids.ca

Visitor’s Visa information

If you are an international patient, you may require a visitor’s visa to enter Canada. Please visit the Canadian Immigration and Citizenship website for more detailed information.  

For Physicians/Health Care Team

Partner with referring physician and health care team

Our team is committed to partnering with the primary health care team, recognizing the essential role each member plays in providing your patient with the best quality care, both at SickKids and when he/she returns home. 

Referral Process:

Physicians interested in referring patients to the NAIT Program will be required to complete an ARMS (Ambulatory Referral Management System) Referral to the NAIT Program, to assist us in assessing your patient’s eligibility for available clinical trials.
