National Survey of Clinical Services and Training for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in Canada

Description: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a prevalent, disabling disorder that requires specialized evidence-based treatments as well as timely access to these treatments for optimal recovery.

Specifics: We are requesting that Canadian clinicians, supervisors, and directors of service and/or training complete this funded nationally distributed survey developed to meet the need for comprehensive information about specialized services and training across Canada for OCD in both the public and private sectors. Survey results and a database of services in Canada for OCD will be accessible (with site consent) to Canadian care providers and to the public and will inform educational and intervention initiatives. This survey was developed at The Canadian Institute for Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (CIOCD, and the McGill University Health Center in consultation with a Canadian team of collaborating staff psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical and training directors, and community leaders.
