The Chair’s Report

Metamorphosis The past year has been one of transformation. Our Department has undergone immense changes over the course of a few short months. Our major teaching hospitals are settling into bright new clinical facilities across the city – most notably CAMH, which opened three new buildings at the Queen Street Site in the spring of 2012. Fundraising and awareness campaigns have also been launched by several of the hospitals; and while they are sure to have a positive impact financially, the changes taking place in the community will be invaluable. With the unveiling of our five-year strategic plan, the department has undertaken a process that will engage a broad community in articulating our core strengths and creating an actionable, inspiring vision. As a group, we will explore the difference we aim to make in the world and what will we focus on to do that. The four priorities outlined in this plan — integration, development, brain and dialogue — will help to steer us in the right direction until 2017. Our focus will be on continually improving our education programs, focusing our research on all stages of development, recognizing and reinforcing the importance of neuroscience in our field, and increasing dialogue in public and professional spheres. For a full outline of our strategic plan, please visit our website at http://www.utpsychiatry.ca/about/strategic-plan/. As with all visions, they are easier to articulate than achieve. However, I believe that we will all remain committed to realizing the goals of this plan; the future success of our department depends on it.

Following a process of extensive review, consultation with stakeholders, discussion at the Executive and Senior Advisory Committees, we reorganized our department structure from 14 programs to 8 divisions. We are excited about this endeavor and expect it will bring positive changes by increasing collaboration in closely related areas. This realignment will expand on current strengths and facilitate growth in new areas of scholarship and will help us to foster: integration, cohesion, inter-professionalism, engagement and meaningful partnerships. Central to this development is a commitment with our hospital partners to align the University Department of Psychiatry and the hospitals’ respective strategic plans, support and resources. On the education front, we have remained a leader in post-graduate training with three newly accredited subspecialty programs: Geriatrics, Forensics, and Child/Adolescent Psychiatry. I am proud to say that the University of Toronto is the only university to receive accreditation from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) for all three psychiatry subspecialties. I would be remiss not to reiterate the exemplary efforts and planning of the program directors and their committees. It is through their hard work and dedication that this accreditation was achieved. I cannot place enough emphasis on the importance of our education programs: we are mentoring the next generation of researchers, clinicians, and educators, whose efforts will change the world. As outlined in the report from the Vice-Chair of Research, Allan Kaplan, the department’s research contributions have been tremendous. According to the 2010 Thomson ISI rankings, the Department of Psychiatry was ranked first in all of Canada in terms of both publications and citations. Research funding for the 2011-2012 academic year continued to be impressive, with our faculty securing over $79 million in


Chair’s report total research funding — the majority of which is peer reviewed. This represents a 7.7 % increase from last year. Research is a major focus of this University, and I am proud that our department continues to contribute to our reputation as the number one research university in Canada.

AWARDS One of the great pleasures of heading up such a wonderful department is acknowledging the numerous achievements our members have garnered. If I were to mention every one of them, my message would be more of an epic novel. Instead, I will highlight just a few which are truly outstanding: • Dr. Ivan Silver has been awarded the President’s Teaching Award for 2012.

The Medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country and also serves to honour significant

contributions and achievements by Canadians. • Dr. Gail Robinson became a distinguished fellow of the Canadian Psychiatric Association • Dr. Gary Rodin received the Life Time Achievement Award for making exceptional and enduring contributions to psychosocial oncology & was appointed to the Editorial Board of PsychoOncology. • Dr. Joel Sadavoy has just been awarded the 2012 American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry Diversity Award (AAGP) • Dr. Mark Halman - recipient of the 2012 Casey Award • Dr. Sagar Parikh, Dr. Gail Erlick Robinson, Dr. Joel Sadavoy, and Dr. Ari Zaretsky were each named as Fellow of the CPA in recognition of their exemplary contributions towards excellence in psychiatry. • Dr. Susan Lieff (Vice-Chair, Education) has been recognised by the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada with the 2012 award for Outstanding Contribution to Faculty Development in Canada. • Dr.Daniel Blumberger- NCDEU New Investigator Award, May 2012 from the American Society of Clinical Psychopharmacology

COMINGS And GOINGS After more than 15 years of service in this department, Dr. Brenda Toner has accepted the position of Graduate Coordinator at the Institute of Medical Science. The Fellowship Program has been well-served by her outstanding leadership since December 1st, 2003. Brenda has truly made an indelible contribution to our department. Under her direction the Fellowship Executive Committee has doubled in size, and the quality of programming has been exemplary. For her dedication, passion, enthusiasm, and many more wonderful traits, she will be deeply missed.

In closing At the end of my second year as Chair, I would like to thank the members of my Executive and Senior Advisory Committees for their continued hard work and support, and the site chiefs and faculty members for all their contributions to the department. They share their

Report of the vice-Chair, Clinical

OVERVIEW A central component of the responsibilities of the Vice Chair, Clinical is to foster communication, alignment and integration of clinical and academic resources across the 8 Divisions of the University Toronto, Department of Psychiatry and across the University of Toronto affiliated teaching hospitals. The Vice Chair, Clinical is also the Executive Committee sponsor for the Pillar 4 component of the new University Strategic Plan, focusing on improving Dialogue around mental health, advocacy and fulfilling our social responsibility. This has included coordinating a position paper for the University Department of Psychiatry addressing federal government changes that reduce health care coverage for immigrants and refugees.

Division Structure This academic year marked the first year of the newly aligned Divisional structure of the University Toronto, Department of Psychiatry, moving from 14 Divisions and Programs to a complement of 8, with the leadership of the Divisions meeting together in the Council of Divisions, chaired by the Vice Chair, Clinical. Each Division is lead by a Director(s) and through a 3year transition period pre-existing programs that are integrated into the new Divisions will continue with their existing leadership. Through the 2011-12 academic year, searches were conducted for the Director of the Division of Adult Psychiatry and Health Systems and Dr.Vicki Stergiopoulos was appointed effective July, 2012, with Dr. Trevor Young serving as Acting Director through 2011-12. Dr.Valerie Taylor was appointed as Co-Director of the Division of Equity, Gender and Population following a search process and co-leads that Division with Dr. Sam Noh. A collaborative search

linking the Hospital for Sick Children and CAMH is underway for the Director of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Dr. John Langley has served as Acting Director during this past year. The University Department has benefitted greatly from the leadership of the Acting Directors. The new Division structure expands on historic strengths and facilitates growth in new areas of scholarship aligned with the new strategic plan of the University Department, as well as supporting the sub-specialty training programs in Forensic Psychiatry; Child and Adolescent Psychiatry; and, Geriatric Psychiatry. Each Division provides leadership in the area of education at all levels including undergraduate, postgraduate, fellowship and continuing education; in research; creative professional activity and public policy where appropriate; and, in the provision of exemplary clinical care. Each Division will seek to establish an endowed Chair(s). Each Division serves and functions as the academic home for its members and provides opportunities for collaboration and professional development amongst the Division members, recognizing the challenges and opportunities that emerge within a very large and widely spread out Department. The Divisional structure aligns with the strategic plans of the respective hospitals that serve as the base for the Divisions and the Division Leadership to leverage the combined university and hospital resources to support the academic development of the Divisions. As we embark on implementation of a new university strategic plan, the Divisions are integrating their academic activities into the key foci of the strategic plan which includes four key pillars that will shape the Department of Psychiatry Annual Report

Vice-Chair Reports Department over the next 5 years: Integration; Development; Brain and Dialogue. The eight Divisions are: 1. Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Dr. John Langley has served as the acting Director in 2011-12. 2. Forensic Psychiatry, Director, Dr. Sandy Simpson 3. Geriatric Psychiatry, Director, Dr. Bruce Pollock 4. Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry, Director, Dr. Jon Hunter 5. Adult Psychiatry and Health Systems, Director, Dr. Vicki Stergiopoulos. 6.

Equity, Gender and Population, Co-Directors, Dr. Sam Noh and Dr.Valerie Taylor. 8. Brain and Therapeutics, Co-Directors, Dr. Jim Kennedy and Tony George– bringing together the pre-existing programs in Addictions, Mood and Anxiety, Neuroscience and Schizophrenia. The Mood and Anxiety academic area is lead by Dr. Zindel Segal and the Schizophrenia academic area is lead by Dr. Gary Remington. The Division of Geriatric Psychiatry underwent an external 5 year review. The Division and Dr. Bruce Pollock were cited for excellent achievement across the educational, research and clinical domains and for providing outstanding academic leadership and creating a well integrated Division with high morale.

The Mental Health and Addictions Acute Care Department Alliance One of the central integrative clinical programs in the University Department is the Mental Health and Addictions Emergency Department Alliance which renamed itself The Mental Health and Addictions Acute Care Department Alliance reflecting the expansion of activities beyond emergency psychiatry into the broader continuum of care within acute care psychiatry.

This alliance brings together seven hospital partners including; The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health; Mount Sinai Hospital; St. Michael’s Hospital; St. Joseph’s Hospital; UHN; Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre; and Toronto East General Hospital. The Alliance was established to improve the quality of care and the efficiency with which care llnnis provided to patients accessing emergency and acute care services in our respective hospitals, recognizing the value in collaboration and more efficient utilization of resources. The Alliance is governed by a steering committee that consists of representatives of each of the hospitals and is co-chaired by Dr. Peter Voore representing the hospitals; Dr. Molyn Leszcz representing the University; and Jan Lackstrom as the administrative lead. As we embark on The Alliance Executive implementation of a includes Adair Robnew university strategic erts as Administrative plan, the Divisions Director and Dr. Don are integrating their Wasylenki as Medical academic activities Director. into the key foci of the strategic plan which includes four key pillars that will shape the Department over the next 5 years.

Activities of the Alliance include maintaining a central bed registry and interhospital bed access model to reduce ED wait times and facilitate patient flow; implementation of a common assessment form; compilation of reliable data capturing the nature and volume of acute care activities; and systems improvements in collaboration with health care providers and with the police. Regular meetings also occur between the Inpatient Directors focused on the dissemination of best practices for inpatient care; improving discharge planning; and, fostering a spirit of stronger collaboration. Initially supported directly by the hospital partners, the University of Toronto Department of Psychiatry and AFP Innovation Funding, the Alliance was also awarded a grant from the Toronto Central LHIN (TCL-


Vice-Chair Reports HIN) to focus more specifically on frequent users of the Emergency Room. We have used this funding to develop a Frequent Users Working Group bringing together hospital and community partners across the TCLHIN; learning from existing innovative programs that engage patients effectively addressing core psychosocial needs in the area of mental health and addictions care, while taking a systems-wide view of the provision of care to this patient population. Similar advances have occurred in regard to the ED assessment of seniors presenting with mental health and addictions concerns through innovative training and education of front line providers.

health, mental health, addictions, physical health and other services. The role of the TCM includes outreach, assessment, service-planning, linking, crisis management and program evaluation. CATCH-ED is intended to support participants for approximately 12-16 weeks, until they are well-connected to their nonED-based supports. The Alliance also secured funding through a competitive process from BRIDGES, a joint MOHLTC and University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine initiative to evaluate the intervention. This evaluation, lead by Dr.Vicki Stergiopoulos will compare the CATCH-ED intervention with care as usual in a randomized control trial.

The Frequent Users working group collaborated to develop the Coordinated Access to Care from the Hospital – Emergency Department (CATCH-ED) initiative. This is a pilot program that responds to people who are visiting Emergency Departments (EDs) frequently assisting them in accessing health resources in the community with the goal of reducing preventable ED visits and improving access to community-based care. Our focus is on individuals who have 5+ visits to an Emergency Department (ED) at any of the pilot sites within a year, with at least one of these visits having been for a mental health and/or addiction problem. The pilot sites include St. Michael’s Hospital, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and St. Joseph’s Health Centre, in collaboration with Toronto North Support Services, Reconnect Mental Health Services, Sound Times Support Services, Community Resource Connections of Toronto, COTA Health, Parkdale Activity and Recreation Centre; and four Community Health Centres, specifically South Riverdale, Regent Park, Central Toronto, and Parkdale Community Health Centres.

We expect to continue to build on these larger scale clinical and academic partnerships to improve the systems of care we provide in acute mental health and addictions. Molyn Leszcz, MD. FRCPC Professor of Psychiatry Vice Chair, Clinical

CATCH-ED Transitional Case Managers (TCMs) provide direct service to people who use Emergency Departments frequently to meet their health care needs. Each CATCH-ED Transitional Case Manager (TCM) works with one of the three pilot hospital Emergency Department sites and Toronto community agencies to help connect frequent users to appropriate Department of Psychiatry Annual Report

Report of the Vice-Chair, Education

Overview “The past academic year has been characterized by outstanding work in all the education portfolios in the Department of Psychiatry.”

Undergraduate Medical Education The Undergraduate Program continues to flourish under the leadership of Dr. Raed Hawa. Curriculum within the Clerkship Program has been successfully standardized and is highly rated across the training sites. Exit surveys of the graduating classes across the country indicate that University of Toronto students are very satisfied with their undergraduate psychiatric education. The Psychiatry Institute hosted 25 students from across Canada, and received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the participants. This year also saw the successful launch of the Psychiatric Longitudinal Experience (PSYC-Le) which offers medical students the opportunity to shadow a psychiatrist in either an office or hospital setting to develop a sense of what it is like to be a psychiatrist as well as enhance students’ comfort with patients with mental illness. Another highlight this year was the fact that over 100 electives were taken from students across Canada and internationally in the Department of Psychiatry.

Postgraduate Medical Education The Postgraduate Program continues to innovate in order to provide residents with a high quality educational experience. Under the leadership of Dr. Ari Zaretsky, a new mentorship program has been developed, new assessment tools are being developed and implemented to enhance feedback for residents and the M-BRITE wellness curriculum was successfully

piloted. Additionally workshops on entrustable professional activities and a new faculty orientation were provided to faculty members. These are only a few examples of the multiple initiatives evolving in our program.

Continuing Mental Health Education A main highlight from the year is the inaugural Donald Wasylenki Faculty Development Day for Teachers and Educators that took place in February, 2011... The Day focused on developing the skills, career plans, and potential collaborations of the many talented teachers and educators in the Department.

The Continuing Education Program is extraordinarily successful and among the largest in the Faculty of Medicine. Under the leadership of Dr. Sagar Parikh, this program offers a wealth of both short-term and longterm continuing education courses and has been recognized with a number of awards.

Fellowship Proram

Dr. Brenda Toner continued to develop the Fellowship Program of the Department which now is one of the largest in the Faculty of Medicine. Under Dr. Toner’s leadership the Fellowship Program has had many more centralized activities than before including the Fellows’ Research Day, an annual reception and a number of awards and bursaries available for outstanding fellows.

Education Council The Education Council of the Department of Psychiatry comprises all of the above named Directors


Vice-chair reports and the Vice-Chair of Education. Together this group plans the major educational directions for the Department. In the past academic year the Education Council has been dedicated to identifying opportunities for alignment of the education portfolios with the priorities of the Department’s strategic plan, developing a departmental strategy for educational awards and rationalising the budgets.

Other Developments The end of this academic year has also brought significant leadership changes. The Education Council is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. John Teshima as the first Director of Faculty Development in the Department. Dr. Brenda Toner has finished her term as Director of the Fellowship Program. The Education Council welcomes Dr. Arun Ravindran as the new Fellowship Director. After 8 years in the position of Director of the Postgraduate Program, Dr. Ari Zaretsky announced that he will be stepping down to become Chief of Psychiatry at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre. Dr. Leslie Wiesenfeld, the Associate Director of the Postgraduate Program will be the interim Director until Jan 2013 when a new Director will start.

The academic partner of the educational administrative structure is the RISE program (Research, Innovation, and Scholarship in Education) within the Division of the Psychotherapies, Humanities and Education Scholarship which continues to contribute to the quality and best practices of education across the Department. At the end of this year, RISE saw the appointment of its new Program Lead, Dr. Sophie Soklaridis who is a skilled education researcher. With this new leadership in place, RISE will move to foster an intimate relationship with the existing Education Portfolios.

Susan Lieff Md, MEd, MMann Vice-Chair, Education

A main highlight from the year is the inaugural Donald Wasylenki Faculty Development Day for Teachers and Educators that took place in February, 2011 at The Old Mill. The Day focused on developing the skills, career plans, and potential collaborations of the many talented teachers and educators in the Department. The Day was very well received by the breadth of Faculty who attended and participants had many ideas for faculty development events to come. Another exciting development was that the University of Toronto, Department of Psychiatry is the only university thus far in Canada to have received accreditation from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada for the following three subspecialties: Geriatric Psychiatry, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Forensic Psychiatry. Dr. Rob Madan, Dr. John Langley and Dr. Lisa Ramshaw along with their respective committees have worked diligently in Department of Psychiatry Annual Report

Report of the vice-chair, research

Overview The Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto is one of the largest in the world and has over 700 active faculty members, 30% of whom are engaged in full time academic activities. Faculty members who are engaged in research are situated in one of the 17 affiliated teaching hospitals/ institutions in the Department. Each faculty member has an academic home in one of the Department’s 8 academic divisions, each of which overseas the research activities of its faculty. Within the Faculty of Medicine, the Department of Psychiatry has a very strong track record of high quality research. Over the past several years, Psychiatry has been in the top three Departments in the Faculty of Medicine in terms of funding for research. Currently, there are 22 Endowed Chairs and Professorships in the Department. Over 80 members of the Department hold appointments at the Institute of Medical Science in the School Graduate Studies, allowing these faculty to supervise graduate students. In terms of publications, according to the 2010 Thomson ISI rankings, the Department of Psychiatry was ranked first in all of Canada in terms of both publications and citations, 3rd in publications and 4th in citations for all public US and Canadian University Departments of Psychiatry, and 6th in terms of publications and 8th in terms of citations for all Departments of Psychiatry, private and public, in North America.

Research Funding Research funding for the 2011-2012 academic year continued the recent trend of annual growth as measure by both peer and non peer reviewed funding. This past academic year the department attracted

over $79 million (Table 1) in total research funding, the majority of which is peer reviewed. This represents a 7.7 % increase from last year. $45 million of this funding represents PI funding, and an increase of 27% from last year. Figures 1-4 show the funding by agency, division, hospital and category, respectively.

Publications In the academic year 2011-2012 members of the Department published 770 peer reviewed journal articles, 97 book chapters and 29 books. (See “Publications” at the end of the Annual Report).

38th Annual Harvey Stancer Research Day The Office of the Vice Chair, Research, along with the Head of the Organizing Committee Dr Jeff Daskalakis, are responsible for organizing and coordinating the Annual Harvey Stancer Research Day. This year’s Plenary Address was given by Dr. John H. Krystal, MD, Professor and Chair, Department of Psychiatry,Yale University, who spoke on:“Glutamatergic Treatment Strategies for Schizophrenia and Depression: A Translational Neuroscience Perspective”. The winners of the Research Day Awards are listed in Table 6 and they should all be congratulated for their achievements.

undergraduate medical education

Overview My term as Director of Undergraduate Medical Education in the department of Psychiatry began July 2011, and it has been a pleasure. Over the next 5 years the UG program will work to improve recruitment, enhance our students’ assessment tools and increase our involvement within the medical school locally as well as with the national and international educational bodies.

PRECLERKSHIP BRAIN AND BEHAVIOUR

Dr. Albert Wong continues as the Brain and Behaviour Psychiatry Coordinator and the psychiatry component of Brain and Behaviour continues to be highly rated by first year medical students. MMMD COURSE- MECHANISMS, MANIFESTATIONS AND MANAGEMENT OF DISEASE

Dr Nikola Grujich has taken over from Dr Ayal Schaffer as a Coordinator for the psychiatry section in MMMD with a focus on anxiety, mood and substances for second year medical students. This section continues to be rated highly by the students. ASCM I/ASCM II/DOCH 2

Our staff continue to contribute their energy and talent to make these preclerkship courses a success with emphasis on the importance of involvement of psychiatrists in medical student teaching, whether it is in interviewing skills or research projects. THERAPEUTIC COMMUNICATIONS

Dr Solomon Shapiro has decided to step down as a leader for this ongoing course that has been running for over 17 years. This will open new opportunities to create a program for first and second year medi-

cal students to have them engaged in a longitudinal exposure to “therapy” and “communication” with patients. PSYCHIATRY LONGITUDINAL EXPERIENCEPsyCLE

The UG office created an opportunity for first year medical students to shadow a psychiatrist in a hospital or office setting. We had, over the last academic year, 27 students selecting to spend 3 half days with psychiatrists in different specialties, and the feedback about their experiences has been very positive.

CLERKSHIP CENTRALIZED CORE CURRICULUM

The centralized core teaching, under the leadership of Drs Kien Dang and Pat Colton, and the revamped Child Psychiatry curriculum, under the leadership of Dr Suneeta Monga continue to thrive. Talented teachers recruited from each site, continue to contribute to a revised syllabus, a set of learning objectives and interactivity that prepare our students to the complex and yet exciting world of psychiatric care. UTM INVOLVEMENT

Credit Valley Hospital and Trillium Health Centre have been involved in the delivery of clinical training for 3rd year medical students over the last year. Dr. Karen Petruccelli and Dr Sashikala Senthelal have been appointed as the undergraduate site coordinators as CVH and THC respectively. The students have rated their clinical experiences very positively. Over the next academic year 24 medical students will be placed at the 2 hospitals for their clinical rotations. ELECTIVES/ SELECTIVES


education Dr Jon Novick continues to be actively involved in coordinating electives offered through our department to local, national, and international students. Dr Monica Scalco has been an excellent addition to our undergraduate program coordinating selectives offered through the Transitions to Residency (TTR) block. RECRUITMENT

Drs Claire DeSouza and Lisa Andermann and the Recruitment Committee continue to host Psychiatry Interest Group nights, medical student dinners, and movie nights. The Recruitment Committee has been considering other options and ideas to enhance recruitment beyond The Summer Psychiatry Institute. TEACHING TO TEACH

Our staff continue to contribute their energy and talent to make these preclerkship courses a success, with emphasis on the importance of involvement of psychiatrists in medical student teaching, whether it is in interviewing skills or research projects.

Two mandatory half day sessions continue to be provided annually to the junior and senior resident groups on Teaching to Teach. This program introduces the residents to different approaches of teaching medical students in different settings. CSI- CLINICAL STIMULATION INITIATIVE

Our UG program has been the first Canadian program to collaborate with ADMSEP in creating clinical scenarios/ e-modules to be published by MedEdPORTAL and provide a national database for use in Psychiatry curricula nationwide.

SPECIAL THANKS I would like to extend my thanks to the administrative support of Rachel MacKenzie and Rachel Delaney who have been running the UG office smoothly and worry-free. My sincerest thanks go to all members of the UG committee as well as to all the staff who continue to share their experiences with our students and provide excellent role models.

Postgraduate Medical Education Overview During 2011-2012 academic year, the Psychiatry Residency Program Committee (PRPC) worked on new strategies to assess resident performance across all CanMEDS roles and closely collaborated with the three new Subspecialty Program Directors in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Geriatric Psychiatry and Forensic Psychiatry as they successfully applied for accreditation status from the Royal College.

Evidence of the residency training program’s ongoing strength and vitality was the very successful October 2011 Internal Review of the Program (in preparation for the Royal College review in April 2013), the nomination of the program for the 2012 PAIRO Program Excellence Award for a fourth year in a row, and the residency program successfully filling 32 Canadian Medical Graduate and International Medical Graduate positions in the first iteration of the 2012 CaRMS match.


Education Reports PRPC Subcommittee Activities 2011-2012 The PRPC continued to function effectively through the strong efforts of its subcommittees with the Resident Evaluation, Committee for Supervisor Evaluation and Support, Resident Selection, Site Feedback and Safety Subcommittees all being extremely busy over the past academic year. The Supervisor Evaluation Subcommittee, chaired by Dr. Gail Robinson, was transformed into the Committee for Supervisor Evaluation and Support. This new committee is now co-chaired by Dr. Robinson (Postgraduate Chair) and Dr. Flak (Undergraduate Chair) and is composed of faculty representatives from both postgraduate medical education and undergraduate medical education. Both the Directors of Postgraduate Medical Education and Undergraduate Medical Education attend ex-officio to these meetings depending on whether the problematic supervisor issue pertains to a postgraduate or an undergraduate issue. Dr. Nadiya Sunderji effectively chaired the Site Feedback Subcommittee and has modified the site feedback review process in order to ensure that it continues to function as a sustainable and very meaningful quality assurance activity. Postgraduate Site Coordinators have continued to be very responsive to issues raised by residents and overall resident satisfaction based on rotation effectiveness scores and teaching effectiveness scores from POWER, as well as bi-annual PRAT surveys, has remained very high. Julia Bella, Nithya Ravi together with Postgraduate Site Coordinators have also been very effective in ensuring that supervisor timeliness and overall supervisor ITER completion rates remain very high despite the challenges of overseeing up to 400 postgraduate supervisors per year. The Safety Subcommittee, under the able leadership of Drs Heather Flett and Dr. Lesley Wiesenfeld, together with thoughtful PRAT input, were extremely active in revising and enhancing the Department of Psychiatry

Resident Training Safety Guidelines in order to ensure that there is increased attention to safety during community visits. In addition, there is now a rigorous process to ensure that all supervisors and Postgraduate Site Coordinators utilize a formal checklist in order to comprehensively orient residents to a new site at the beginning of a rotation. The Resident Selection Subcommittee co-Chaired by Dr. Lesley Wiesenfeld and Dr. Susan Abbey together with Dr. Sanjeev Sockalingam, Director of IMG Training, had another extremely successful CaRMS Match. Our residency filled all 27 Canadian Medical Graduate and 5 International Medical Graduate spots. All candidates who were selected were extremely competitively ranked.

Changes in Faculty Involved in Residency Education Dr. Julie Maggi left the PRPC in order to assume the important new role of Director of Postgraduate Medical Education at SMH. Dr. Mark Hallman has assumed the role of Postgraduate Coordinator role for SMH. Dr. Erin Carter succeeded Dr. Nadiya Sunderji and Dr. Adriana Carvalhal as new the Postgraduate Site Coordinator for WCH. Dr. Robyn Waxman has succeeded Dr. Laura Gage at Ontario Shores. Dr. Jason Joannou became the Interim Postgraduate Site Coordinator for CAMH, covering for Dr. Heather Flett during her maternity leave. Dr. Andrew Howlett, a recent graduate from our residency, is currently overlapping with Dr. Nhagi Ghabbour as the Postgraduate Site Coordinator for SJH. Greg Lodenquai has succeeded Ruth Stertzinger as the Postgraduate Site Coordinator for George Hull.

New Developments in Residency Education Over the past year there have been a number of important new developments within the residency program. Dr. Sanjeev Sockalingam was given the responsibility to chair an ad-hoc working group to reform resident Department of Psychiatry Annual Report

Education Reports call in order to make it more equitable and educationally sound. After broad consultation with expert faculty, site coordinators, PRAT and residents and after a special summit and resident town hall meeting cochaired by Dr. Zaretsky and Dr. Sockalingam, a number of significant refinements to call were approved by the PRPC. These changes included having residents generally assigned to do call at their own “daytime� sites, having PGY-1s assigned to some limited overnight call, having Chief Residents deliberately attempting to pair junior and senior residents on call and extending UHN’s online resident and supervisor on-call feedback system to all relevant hospital sites. The most dramatic change in the new on-call system was the creation of a new set of explicit guidelines regarding expectations for junior residents, senior residents and staff psychiatrists who are on-call. These new guidelines, which will become operational in the fall of 2012, will enhance graded responsibility for residents within our training program. Based on resident feedback and concern about fragmentation during PGY-4 training, Consultation Liaison Psychiatry was modified for 2012-2013 to become a 6 month rotation consisting of 3 months of inpatient CL work and 3 months of ambulatory CL with collaborative care integrated into the 3 month ambulatory CL for at least 2 days a week. The senior Addiction Psychiatry training was also modified during Chronic Care in order to make the training less fragmenting while still retaining the unique expertise of Addiction Psychiatrists as supervisors. Dr. Andrea Waddell joined the PEAC as the Chair of a brand new subcommittee: the Resident Assessment Subcommittee. This new subcommittee with broad representation from educators across the PEAC, was specifically inaugurated to develop a comprehensive system of assessment and feedback across all of the CanMEDS roles, particularly the non-medical expert ones. The subcommittee has met steadily over the latter six months of the academic year and has been utilizing

a competency framework based on the concepts of entrustable professional activities and milestones. These new concepts that have recently been embraced across many countries by postgraduate medical educators (including psychiatry educators in the UK and Australia) as a novel strategy to enhance competency assessment and address progressive professional responsibility. New tools for residency competency assessment will deployed in 2012-2013, including a new multi-source feedback assessment for residents in Geriatric Psychiatry. The topic of the Postgraduate Education retreat in May 2012 was Entrustable Professional Activity and was presented by both Dr. Andrea Waddell and Dr. Brian Hodges. Dr. Zaretsky and Robinson organized a well attended inaugural half-day pragmatic faculty development workshop for all PGY-5 graduating residents in order to orient them to the postgraduate educational system and the responsibilities and common challenges associated with being a new resident supervisor. Finally, Dr. Mark Fefergrad, the Resident Advisor for our residency program, organized an inaugural longitudinal mentoring system for all PGY-2 residents starting in the 2012-2013 academic year. 30 faculty mentor volunteers from the Department were hand-picked for this exciting new program and were each paired with one to two PGY-2 residents. Dr. Karen Leslie delivered an enthusiastically received faculty development workshop for these new volunteer mentors.

Fellowship Program

Overview The Fellowship Program provides an opportunity for advanced academic training in specific clinical and/ or research areas in Psychiatry. Fellowships are usually undertaken for two years, although a small number of candidates choose a one-year Fellowship. The Fellowship Program receives applicants from within the Department as well as nationally and internationally. There is a standard application process and each Fellow works with a primary supervisor in a specific Program within the Department. Each Fellow must submit an annual report on their scholarly activities and an award is offered each year based on this report. The Fellowship Director reports directly to the ViceChair, Education and sits on the Education Council. The Fellowship Executive consists of representation from hospital sites as well as representation from Programs, Fellows and Psychiatry Residents.

Awards Available to Fellows and Supervisors This was a very busy year for organizing competitions and offering awards and developing new awards. Fellows had the opportunity to nominate supervisors for the “Paul E. Garfinkel Award for Best Fellowship Supervisor” online, producing several nominations this year. This year’s winner was Dr. Jeff Daskalakis. We continued to offer “Best Accomplishment by a Fellow Award”. This award is based on the best submission of an annual report from a Fellow in the Program. This year the award went to Dr.Victoria Wing. We were pleased to offer several travel awards this year to Fellows who were presenting their research at scientific meetings.

Events

On April 23rd, we were pleased to present a Mindfulness and Neuroplasticity workshop led by Dr. Wanda Bowman Taylor. The event was extremely well-attended and productive. We will strive to offer even more workshops and seminars in the next year. The Annual Fall Reception was held on November 2nd, 2011, and provided the opportunity for Fellows from all of the diverse hospital sites to meet one another. In addition, Fellows had the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas about the Program with the Director, Executive Fellowship Committee and Faculty and Trainees. During this year, we are planning events based on feedback from Fellows as well as events that seemed to receive positive feedback in past years. Fellows who serve on the Executive have begun to organize seminars, networking events and dinners throughout the year. We would like to recognize Clement Zai and Vanessa Faria De Oliveira for taking the lead on this initiative. The Fellowship Program hosted a Fellowship Academic Day on April 6th, 2012. This event gave Fellows the opportunity to present their scholarly work to other fellows, supervisors and the fellowship executive. Six of our fellows gave presentations, and the event was attended by Fellows, as well as some of the supervisors. The event also provided a forum for academic and social exchange among Fellows.

Works in Progress The Fellowship Program continued to emphasize the importance of consistent effective evaluation and report procedures throughout this academic year. This initiative will continue to expand within the new academic year. The Director of the Fellowship Program is now a member of the Faculty of Medicine

We also continue to place emphasis on the importance of financial support for our Fellows. The new funding minimums put in place for international medical graduates — at the recommendation of the FEAC — is a step in the right direction, and will ensure that fellows can concentrate on training and development. Moving forwards, similar evaluations of funding for other fellows will take place.

Continuing mental health education

Overview Psychiatry’s Continuing Mental Health Education (CMHE) goals are consistent with University of Toronto CEPD goals, involving advocacy of best practices in education; promotion of scholarship and research; expansion of the scope of CMHE; and support for faculty development in CE. The CMHE committee therefore acts as a mentoring group, fostering the development of its members who in turn spearhead multiple activities across our vast department. As it has for most of the past decade, the Department of Psychiatry is the largest provider of accredited CE programs in the faculty of Medicine, as well as the largest academic provider of accredited CE programs in psychiatry world-wide. While 60 Department of Psychiatry programs (listed in the appendix) are shown as accredited through the University of Toronto in the table, there are numerous additional unlisted accredited events such as Grand Rounds. The major 60 programs span the range of formats, including 6 large conferences aimed predominantly at a wide audience, 24 longitudinal courses designed to develop skills in participants from the local area, 28 intensive, 2-3 day training institutes designed to impart very specific skills, usually in psychotherapy, and 2 retreats.Most of the longitudinal courses were webbased. A fuller description of these programs, with course brochures, is available on the CMHE website: http://www.utpsychiatyr.ca/Education/ContinuingEducation/default.asp The department remains active in Knowledge Translation (KT), with a number of individuals holding

CIHR grants in this area, and additional interest in KT fostered by the 2011 CMHE retreat on KT. Finally, scholarship in education is further demonstrated by various recent educational research publications. Public education is another important area, with a major provincial series of talks on Bipolar Disorder designed by the U of T and delivered under the partnership with Mood Disorders Association of Ontario. Signficant public and provider initiatives were also done to combat stigma associated with mental illness. The Ivan Silver Award is the premiere recognition in the Department of Psychiatry for scholarship in Continuing Education, based on innovation in design, educational formats, excellence in teaching delivery, and measurement of outcome. This year, two events were nominated that included programs in negotiating difficult patient interactions for community-based practitioners and handling oncall responsibilities for faculty members. The 2012 Ivan Silver Award was awarded to Dr. Diana Kljenak for the half day workshop on Succeeding at “Difficult” Clinician-Patient Interactions: Tips for Clinicians. Further development of faculty was fostered through the 2012 CMHE Annual Retreat, which featured university simulation programming expert Dr. Adam Dubrowski explaining various practical uses of simulation in psychiatry. The CMHE committee also provides modest support for research projects and for members to attend conferences connected to scholarship in CE. Sagar V. Parikh, M.D., FRCPC Director of CMHE

Division of Adult Psychiatry & Health systems

Overview The Division of Adult Psychiatry and Health Systems is the second-largest division within the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto. It is the academic home of acute care psychiatry, involving the continuum of care between psychiatric emergency services, inpatient services, and outpatient care.

into a continuum of care. With regard to education, the Division sponsors academic lectures and colloquia and trains clinical and research fellows. Seminars for psychiatric residents are presented in the departmental core curriculum and residents may structure career rotations in the program.

The Division provides core training in psychiatry for residents and framework for clinical and academic coordination across a range of sites within the City of Toronto. Major sites include:

With regard to undergraduate education, a half-day workshop on the mental health system is presented in the Determinants of Health course. Resident training in dual diagnosis service delivery is also provided by program staff.

• Mount Sinai Hospital

DIVISIONAL EXPERTISE

• North York General Hospital

The 191 members of the Division model and promote broad-based and integrative education, research, and clinical care in an era that emphasizes subspecialization. Within the Division, advanced work in Suicidology, Emergency Psychiatry, Psychological Trauma, Cross-Cultural Health, Integrated Therapy, and Inpatient Psychiatry.

• Ontario Shores Mental Health Centre • St. Joseph’s Health Science Centre • St. Michael’s Hospital • Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre • Surrey Place Centre

The purpose of the Division is to foster the many roles of the academic generalist and to facilitate the utilization of scientific information to improve the delivery of mental health and addiction services. The Division’s commitment to nurturing clinical excellence and comprehensive responsiveness to the needs of society is demonstrated by the wide array of clinical services.

Research in diverse areas such as Inner City Health, Suicide, Dual Disorders, Clinical Treatments, Population Health, Ethics, and Integrative Psychotherapy/ Medication models is pursued. Members are also extensively involved in activities related to public agendas. The program has developed effective working relationships with decision-makers at national, provincial and local levels. Activities include the provision of technical assistance for planning processes, advice and consultation to government departments, commissions and task forces, and information to guide public policy development in the mental health field.

Our members support the development of programs which are community-focused, which target individuals with severe and persistent mental illnesses and/ or substance use disorders and which are integrated

The Division exemplifies interprofessional practice and is proud to advance and disseminate the theoretical perspectives, methodologies, and evidence-based knowledge that informs this important domain of

Divisions modern health care delivery. Largescale coordinated activities like the MH&A ED alliance epitomize the collaborative efforts of medical and allied health staff as do the individual hospital and community-based clinical activities of our staff. In addition to the creation of new knowledge in the service delivery field, the Division emphasizes knowledge transfer and exchange as well as the integration of qualitative and quantitative research methodologies. The Program is delighted to have over $16,727,021.00 in total research funding for 2011-12. This represents over 20% of the Department’s total peer-reviewed and non-peer reviewed funding for this year.

Research in diverse areas such as Inner City Health, Suicide, Dual Disorders, Clinical Treatments, Population Health, Ethics, and Integrative Psychotherapy/ Medication models is pursued. Members are also extensively involved in activities related to public agendas.

THE MENTAL HEALTH AND ADDICTIONS EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT ALLIANCE The Division is extremely proud to host the leadership role in the Mental Health and Addiction Emergency Department Alliance (MH&A EDA) as part of its mandate to improve clinical coordination across the Toronto Central LHIN region. The Alliance is a partnership of seven (7) Toronto Central LHIN hospitals (i.e., The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Mount Sinai Hospital, St. Joseph’s Health Centre, St. Michael’s Hospital, Sunnybrook Health departments devoted to improving the management of psychiatric and behavioral emergencies has begun to guide future prospective research efforts and hypothesis generation for the field, in part, by standardizing data collection across sites.

psychiatric emergencies and guide further evidence-based system improvement activities in both the medical and psychiatric emergency departments across the TCLHIN and the broader health system.

The goal of the MH&A EDA is to provide the right acute mental health and addiction care, in the right place, at the right time in a respectful, client-centred manner. This goal is being accomplished through a collaborative process aimed at optimizing the use of the TC-LHIN’s existing acute mental health and addiction service capacity. The TC-LHIN’s Emergency Departments are conceived of by the MH&A ED Alliance not as the centre of mental health and addiction care for TC-LHIN residents, but rather, as emergency response centres and a key point of opportunity for connection of people with acute mental health and addiction needs to timely and appropriate alternatives and followup care through related inpatient, outpatient and/or community-based services.

Division of brain and Therapeutics Overview

The Division of Brain and Therapeutics, effective January 1, 2012 integrates the clinical, educational and research activities of its four component Programs in Neuroscience; Addictions; Mood and Anxiety Disorders and Schizophrenia. The new division is codirected by Drs. Jim Kennedy and Tony George and is comprised of more than 220 full- and part-time faculty across 8 GTA teaching hospitals. These outstanding areas of academic, educational and clinical foci will be strengthened through the added opportunities for clinical, educational and research

collaboration and synergy that the new divisional alignment seeks to achieve for the benefit of its faculty and trainees. A summary of progress in the past year is given below in the areas of research, education, and clinical care.

RESEARCH The faculty of the Division of Brain and Therapeutics brought in over 50% of the external funding generated by the Department of Psychiatry in 2011-12. Division faculty published over 350 peer-reviewed papers, and were highly successful in recent grant competitions for CIHR, NIH, NARSAD, Ontario


DIVISIONS Mental Health Foundation (OMHF) and the Schizophrenia Society of Ontario (SSO). In 2011-12, CIHR operating grants were obtained by Drs. Jim Kennedy, Tony George, Arturas Petronis, Trevor Young,Vincenzo Deluca, Jeff Daskalakis, Daniel Blumberger, Benjamin Goldstein, Bernard Lefoll, Jeffery Meyer and Christian Hendershot, and Dr. Deluca was awarded a 2012 CIHR New Investigator Award. NARSAD 2012 Young Investigator Awards were obtained by Drs. Marina Frantseva, Ana Andreazza, Mahesh Menon and Arun Tiwari, and a NARSAD Independent Investigator Award was obtained by Dr. Albert Wong. Drs. Jim Kennedy and Daniel Mueller led the establishment of the Tanenbaum Centre for Pharmacogenetics through a $19.0 Million donation from the Tanenbaum Family.

EDUCATION The Division is a major conduit for the training of undergraduate and graduate students in the Institute of Medical Sciences (IMS, which is directed by Division faculty member Dr. Allan Kaplan) and other medical school graduate departments, and for medical students, psychiatric residents and post-doctoral fellows in the Department of Psychiatry. In fact, over 75% of Clinician-Scientist Stream (CSS) and Clinician-Scientist Program (CSP) residents in the Department (led by Dr. Jeff Daskalakis) have faculty members in the Division. Faculty from the Schizophrenia, Mood and Anxiety and Addictions Programs within the Division also play important teaching roles with the UofT Psychiatry Residency in PGY 1-5, and there are more than 40 post-doctoral fellows in working with Division faculty.

CLINICAL CARE Division faculty participate in the care of patients with a broad range of mood, anxiety, psychotic and addictive disorders which has been recognized for excellence in patient care at regional, national and international levels. Our affiliated hospitals include The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH),

University Health Network (UHN), Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH), St. Michael’s Hospital (SMH), North York General Hospital (NYGH), Baycrest Hospital, Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences, and Sunnybrook Hospital.

AWARDS AND RECOGNITION Division faculty obtained several notable awards and recognition in 2011-12. Dr. Anne Bassett received the John M. Cleghorn Award for Excellence in Psychiatric Research from the Canadian Psychiatric Association. Dr. Gary Remington was the winner of the 2012 Innovations in Neuropsychopharmacology Award from the Canadian College of Neuropsychopharmacology (CCNP), and the 2012 Mel Silverman Award for Outstanding Mentoring in the Institute of Medical Sciences at UofT. Dr. Daniel Mueller was elected to Associate Member Status and Dr. Tony George was promoted to Fellow Status in the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ACNP). Dr. Rachel Tyndale was appointed as Chair of the Pharmacogenomics Research Network (PGRN) of the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Franco Vaccarino (Vice-President of UofT Scarborough, and a long-standing member of the Neuroscience Division in the Department) was appointed to the Board of Directors of Brain Canada (formerly Neuroscience Canada), which has a $200 million budget to enhance brain and neuropsychiatric research across Canada over the coming years. Finally, Dr. Ari Zaretsky, our post-graduate Director, won the 2012 Sarita Verma Award for Advocacy and Mentorship in Postgraduate Medicine (U of T Faculty of Medicine).

FUTURE DIRECTIONS The Division leadership is working on a Lecture Series to bring leading experts in basic and clinical neurosciences and therapeutics to Toronto with the support of the new Campbell Brain Institute at CAMH, and a Chair in Clinical Neurosciences through the Campbell Department of Psychiatry Annual Report

division of child psychiatry

Overview Our Divisional goals emphasize exemplary training, research, scholarship, and the discovery and dissemination of new knowledge in the context of compassionate care, scientific rigor, and evidence based treatment. The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is comprised of ten sites: the Child,Youth and Family Program (CYFP) at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health; the Department of Psychiatry at the Hospital for Sick Children (HSC); the Youth Psychiatry Program at Sunnybrook; the community based programs at Hincks-Dellcrest,Youthdale Treatment Centres, George Hull Centre for Children and Families, and the Child Psychiatry Programs at North York General Hospital, Humber River Regional Hospital, St. Joe’s Hospital, and Toronto East General Hospital. St. Michael’s Hospital offers Selective Placements for residents in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. During the coming academic year we will add two new sites to the division, the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry programs at Credit Valley Hospital and Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Services. HSC and CYFP constitute the hub at which the majority of Divisional research occurs. Education and clinical care is spread throughout the Division. The range of clinical services includes specialized areas at CYFP and HSC as well as more general services at other sites. While there is some overlap in the services provided at CYFP and HSC, there are unique and distinct areas of specialization between these two key sites. Programs and services at HSC as distinct from CYFP include: Eating Disorders, Neuropsychiatry (ADHD); Anxiety Disorders and OCD; Infant Psychiatry; CYFP as distinct from HSC,Youth Addictions and Concurrent Disorders; Mood disorders,Young Offender Assessments; Gender Identity Disorders, Early Onset Psy-

choses; Substance Abuse Prevention for African Canadian and Caribbean Youth (SAPACCY). HSC has a psychiatric emergency service, an inpatient unit and a consultation liaison service to medical and surgical services. CYFP provides outreach to community agencies and offers a program for the treatment of children with disruptive behaviour disorders, a well established firesetting prevention program and a general consultation clinic. Planning for the CYFP move to the Intergenerational Building is well underway and will continue to be a major focus in 2012.  Discussions have focused on developing ways to work collaboratively with existing services to fill a gap in the continuum of care for youth with concurrent disorders, both locally and provincially. The new services for youth with concurrent disorders will open in July under the leadership of Dr. Corrine Carlisle. Community based Mental Health Centres at the Hincks-Dellcrest,Youthdale, and George Hull provide experience and training that complements the hospital based experience at HSC and CAMH. For instance, Hincks-Dellcrest provides community based prevention programs to infants, and preschoolers and their families at two high density development areas in Toronto. Hincks-Dellcrest Centre has a new CEO, Ms. Donna Duncan. Likewise, George Hull offers collaborative mental health partnerships with community groups, focused on early intervention and prevention programs with children 0-6 years of age. Dr. Greg Lodenquai is the new medical director at George Hull. Drs. Langley and Ickowicz have consulted with the Mental Health and Addictions Acute Care Alliance. They would like to see a similar model of integrated crisis services for children and youth. Dr. Langley is Department of Psychiatry Annual Report

DIVISIONS hopeful that this issue will be a priority of the future Director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Faculty have established strong working relationships and collaborations with other departments within their host institution as well as University-based programs in neuroscience, pediatrics, psychology, and education and others. This rich mixture of faculty and trainees from diverse disciplines broadens the perspective, widens our training horizon and is reflected in our research and scholarship.

Postgraduate Education The Division has had another excellent year providing high quality training in child psychiatry for career track child psychiatry residents and for general psychiatry residents completing their core child psychiatry requirements. Eight sites provide core and career track child training. Toronto East General Hospital, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, and St. Michael’s Hospital offer child senior selectives only. This year the Division was asked to provide core child psychiatry training for 38 PGY-3 residents. As the psychiatry residency program continues to expand, we have been asked to provide core training for more residents. In order to address the increasing numbers we have added Humber River Regional Hospital for core and career rotations. Credit Valley Hospital and Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Services will be offering core rotations and career track selectives for the 2013-14 academic year. Dr. John Langley, the postgraduate education training director, is a member of the Royal College Specialty Committee for the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Subspecialty. The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry received full approval from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada to be an accredited training site. The Division will accept the first cohort of three subspecialty residents in July 2012. We are most grateful for the ongoing support and expertise of the Division of Child and Adolescent

Psychiatry Residency Program Committee and the Subspecialty Curriculum Subcommittee. In addition, we are also grateful for the work of Drs. Susan Lieff and Andrea Waddell who have provided support and guidance in developing our Subspecialty Residency Program. This year six residents completed their required career training in child psychiatry. The career child psychiatry training program is the largest child psychiatry program in Canada and one of the largest in North America. We continue to stress the importance of a balanced clinical experience for all core child psychiatry residents with children and youth of all ages and with a variety of diagnoses. Goals and objectives for the core child rotation are reviewed by all residents and supervisors and the core child rotation-specific ITER is used for evaluation. All residents use a clinical log to monitor their clinical experience throughout the rotation. The log is reviewed with their supervisors on a regular basis. All core and career track seminars occur on Thursdays at the Hospital for Sick Children. The core seminars are well attended and the faculty contribution is highly rated by residents. There are 11 general topic seminars and 10-11 psychotherapy seminars. The psychotherapy seminars cover development and psychotherapy, CBT, family therapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy. Dr. Priya Watson, the psychotherapy director, has conducted a review of the evaluations of the psychotherapy seminars. The evaluations are uniformly excellent. The Advanced Child Psychopharmacology Course continues to receive strong evaluations. One of the course directors, Dr. Daniel Gorman, presented a symposium with international faculty at this year’s joint CACAP/ AACAP conference, “International Perspectives on Resident Training in Child Psychopharmacology.” The divisional chief resident, Dr. Oshrit Wanono, and her career child resident colleagues developed an excellent seminar series for senior child residents. The postgraduate education committee is thankful for Dr. Wanono’s hard work and leadership.


DIVISIONS Undergraduate Education Undergraduate education in Child Psychiatry is taught at six sites: The Hospital for Sick Children, Sunnybrook and Women’s College Health Sciences Centre, The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (Child Youth and Family Program), Hincks Dellcrest Centre, The George Hull Centre and Youthdale. Each teaching site has an undergraduate representative that participates in a bimonthly administrative meeting chaired by, Dr. Suneeta Monga, the Director of Undergraduate Education, of the Division of Child Psychiatry. All University of Toronto year 3 clinical clerks participate in a Child and Adolescent Psychiatry course which is embedded in their 3 year adult psychiatry clerkship. A Centralized curriculum is taught across all six teaching sites. Approximately 36 clerks are taught during each of six clerkship rotations per year, with the largest number allotted to HSC and CAMH. A divisional undergraduate education retreat was held in May to discuss electives at the various sites, improved teaching at all sites as well as to ensure that our child and adolescent psychiatry exam question databank is up to date. Two departmental initiatives, PsychLE and PedLE longitudinal experiences for medical students, were well subscribed and several child sites participated.

Research and Fellowship The Division has a new director for Research and Fellowship, Dr. Amy Cheung. We are thankful for Dr. Russell Schachar’s many years of leadership. There has been outstanding growth in research and fellowship activities within the Division. Faculty of the Division are actively involved in a wide range of research activities from the most basic, e.g., genetic and neuroimaging studies to the most applied, e.g., clinical trials and health services research. Faculty collaborate widely within their own institutions (particularly at HSC and CAMH), within the Division, nationally and internationally as can be seen from authorship of journal articles published by the faculty and by the

co-investigators on grants held by faculty. At CAMH, a major focus of research efforts are directed toward youth with concurrent disorders supported by CIHR funding. In addition, Health Canada is supporting a National initiative to enhance service provider CD capacity, increase early intervention opportunities, and improve pathways to treatment for youth and their families. The total value of the grants that are currently active in the Division has grown from $24,000,000 in 2009 to over $34,000,000 in 2010 from Provincial, National and International agencies. In this academic year alone, these grants will bring $9,300,000 for research compared with $4,800,000 in the previous year. Our Division hosts one of the largest fellowship programs in child and adolescent psychiatry in North America. In 2011, there were 6 Fellows spread among the various sites in the Division. Fellows have diverse educational backgrounds including psychology, psychiatry, nursing, and basic sciences. The program showed a steady increase in the number of international fellows and fellows from other Canadian universities. Over the last year, Fellows presented at various prestigious meetings and achieved several honours. Recent graduates of our Fellowship Program have gone on to establish careers at York, Ryerson and McMaster Universities. The Bell Chair in Youth Mood and Anxiety Disorders has been established at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. A search for the first chair is currently underway.

Continuing Professional Development The CPD program in the Division of Child Psychiatry provides accredited CPD events of high effectiveness and innovations. Dr. Tony Pignatiello is the new director for CPD.

The Fotheringham Address was given by Dr. Gabrielle Carlson, Stony Brook University, New York. The Faculty Dinner following Child Psychiatry Day was held in the Music Room at Hart House at 6pm. The Divisional Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Faculty Retreat was held on Friday June 8, 2012 at The Estates of Sunnybrook and focused on “Professionalism and the Business of Medicine”. Speakers included Drs. Pier Bryden, Ross Berringer and Elia Abi-Jaoude at this time. Dr. John Langley provided a faculty development workshop in preparation for the subspecialty residency program. The retreat had record attendance and received very positive evaluations. Weekly Psychiatry Rounds have become Divisionwide Grand Rounds (rotating to all Divisional Child Sites). Dr. Pignatiello is also considering webcasting Grand Rounds.

division of consultation liaison Psychiatry MISSION STATEMENT AND DESCRIPTION

The Consultation & Liaison (CL) Division focuses on the relationship amongst psychological, biological, and social factors in the expression of symptoms in medical/surgical illness. This division’s mandate is to train undergraduate and postgraduate students in the psychiatric care of patients with medical, psychosomatic and medically unexplained conditions, to develop and promote research, to establish and communicate standards of care and to provide and support continuing education in the interface between psychiatry and physical health.

The division draws the attention of physicians and members of the community to the often undetected and untreated psychiatric morbidity and psychosocial distress in medical populations, and enhances the services and treatment available for such problems. The CL division is based at several general hospitals, one paediatric, and one rehabilitation hospital and is staffed by academics and clinicians of many disciplines, including psychiatry, psychology and nursing. Psychiatric CL clinical and teaching services, and specialized clinical and research programs are distributed across these sites as follows, with leadership as noted:

• CL Psychiatry: Abe Snaiderman MD Perhaps the most visible change in the last academic year was the name change from the “Psychiatry, Health and Disease Program” to the “Consultation-Liaison Division”. As a consequence of the clinical realignment exercise undertaken by the University Department, a name was required that could represent the activities of its members and convey to others –both within and outside of psychiatry-the work we do. This is no easy task, as the division includes disciplines as diverse as psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and social workers, and clinical activities that include CL general hospital and sub-specialty psychiatry, sleep medicine, eating disorders, and neuropsychiatry, amongst others. Furthermore, we teach multiple disciplines at multiple stages of their training, and our research and creative professional activities (see below) encompasses a vast reach. However, a review of the top 100 medical schools in the world demonstrated that “Consultation Liaison Psychiatry” was the most frequently utilized name for similar programs. Therefore, although by no means as inclusive as one would hope for, it is the descriptive term that other mental health professionals around the world are most likely to recognize, and as such serves to convey the nature of our work to others as effectively as is pos-


DIVISIONS sible. Regardless of what we call it, the Division continues to be academically productive and innovative. A brief overview reveals the following highlights. At UHN the strength in Eating Disorders continues, as evidenced by Marion Olmsted’s 5 peer-reviewed grants, 3 peer reviewed publications, 3 book chapters and numerous presentations here and abroad. In Cardiac Psychiatry, Brian Baker continues his work on the HARMONY study, examining stress reduction via mindfulness meditation and yoga, while Rob Nolan holds grants in excess of three million dollars, including an investigation into a crucial area of study for CL psychiatry, namely issues that influence adherence to risk-factor modifications. As well, Adrienne Kovacs is creatively addressing the issues that confront individuals with congenital heart disease as they transition to adulthood and the adult health care system. Her participation on 2 funded grants, 5 articles and 19 presentations is evidence of her energetic activity in this area. In related work, Nicole Anderson became a Core Scientist with the Heart and Stroke Foundation Centre for Stroke Recovery, and supported her 2 CIHR grants with 9 articles and a book. The Psychosocial Oncology and Palliative Care team at PMH also had a banner year with multiple members participating in numerous research, educational and clinical activities. Kim Edelstein continues her work looking at vulnerability and resilience factors that bear on the neuropsychological and neuro-imaging consequences of radiation treatment for childhood cancer with 5 current research grants and 8 articles. Lori Bernstein has also examined the consequences to adults of head and neck radiation. Gary Rodin, Sarah Hales and Chris Lo pursue the development of an integrative psychotherapy model for patients with terminal illness (Managing Cancer and Living Meaningfully; CALM) via a Canadian Cancer Society operating grant. The utility of this model has led to workshops

training a cohort of practioners at PMH, and other clinicians from Italy, Israel, Austria, Germany, and Taiwan. In addition, Chris Lo has 3 first authored publications, and has made an active contribution to the Divisional steering committee, guiding the development and interpretation of a member’s survey. Kim Miller led an interactive communication skills course on communication confidence for 37 residents in Oncology that was so well received that her group has been asked to develop another course for PGY5s in Hematology and Medical Oncology. This type of trans-disciplinary education is a highly valued divisional activity. Rinat Nissim contributes to the CALM study, as well as using her expertise in qualitative analysis to understand the experience of patients, families, and volunteers in a cancer hospital, communicated via 5 peer reviewed articles and a book chapter. Jennifer Jones continued in her position as Director of Research for the Cancer Survivorship Program and Associate Director of The ELLICSR Centre for Health, Wellness and Cancer Survivorship at UHN with 9 peer reviewed publications and well over 1 million dollars of research funding attesting to her ongoing productivity.

Mary Jane Esplen continues in her role as the Director of the de Souza Institute, adding 11 peer reviewed publications and 3 book chapters to over 20 academic presentations on topics ranging from psychological consequences of cancer predisposition to how cancer nurses experience the threat of their patients’ mortality. Mary Vachon contributed to 4 chapters addressing primarily the grief and burn-out of professional care-givers. At TWH the Bariatric Surgery Centre of Excellence Psychosocial Team, the largest such team in Ontario, continues to assess and follow bariatric surgery patients for up to five years post-surgery for patients at TWH, SMH and TEGH. In 2011-2012 540 total surgeries were completed for these sites. Raed Hawa Department of Psychiatry Annual Report

DIVISIONS and Sanjeev Sockalingam participate in the team, which includes 3 psychologists, 2 psychometrists, 3 nurse practitioners, 3 social workers, and a Psychosocial Director. Unique to the field, each patient receives an intensive multi-disciplinary evaluation (mental health, nutrition, and social work) prior to seeing a surgeon, and has available to them extensive post-operative support, including CBT support groups, in person or via the telephone. A transition program led by psychologists from HSC’s obesity and bariatric program, co-chaired by Marlene Taube-Schiff, is tackling the systemic issue of moving patients from the paediatric to the adult system. An active research program is underway, with 3 peer reviewed publications, and participation in 11 national and 9 international conferences by members of this active interdisciplinary team, which acts as a model of mental health care integrated into a medical/surgical context. Also at TWH, Raed Hawa became the Director of undergraduate medical education for the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto, and Sanjeev Sockalingam was named the Chair of the Continuing Professional Development Committee of the Canadian Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine. The Hospital for Sick Children CL team, consisting of 10 psychiatrists (full- and part-time), an advanced practice nurse and social worker, is led by Claire DeSouza and sees approximately 3000 in/out patient visits per year. This year the team underwent an extensive self-evaluation, resulting in improvements in clinical functioning, integration within the hospital and evaluative processes. As well, the scope for inter-disciplinary collaboration and education has grown, and the academic production of the team is burgeoning, as well as such significant professional activity as Arlette Lefebvre’s participation in the Minister of Education’s Advisory Council on Special Education. At MSH Bob Maunder assumed a post on the Editorial Board of General Hospital Psychiatry, and, along with Jon Hunter, participated in 2 grants examining

the traumatic and neurocognitive consequences of ICU admission, as well as another grant evaluating the benefit of individualized treatment planning for high utilizers of the ER. Bob’s contributions to knowledge translation this year include 8 peer reviewed articles and 4 book chapters. In his role as Research Head of the Division, Bob has instigated a monthly email to divisional members, highlighting a recent publication by one of our faculty, to improve mutual awareness of our activities.

A review of the top 100 medical schools in the world demonstrated that “Consultation Liaison Psychiatry” was the most frequently utilized name for similar programs. Therefore...it is the descriptive term that other mental health professionals around the world are most likely to recognize, and as such serves to convey the nature of our work to others as effectively as is possible.

Also at MSH, Bill Gaynor’s team published the results of their trial on a randomized controlled trial of mindfulness-based stress reduction to manage affective symptoms and improve quality of life in gay men living with HIV and are now developing a pilot study of an emotion-focused meditation group to better support HIV positive men in coping with internalized stigma related to HIV and sexual orientation.

The MSH HIV clinic’s affiliation with the AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT) continues to develop their program for counselling at–risk individuals in bath houses, and Scott Bowler and Charlotte Chagoya are involved in a project developing a psychoeducational support group for serodiscordant couples, in affiliation with ACT, Family Services Toronto, and the Centre for Spanish-Speaking Peoples. At Sunnybrook Health sciences Center, Anthony


DIVISIONS Feinstein’s substantial contributions to understanding Multiple Sclerosis (MS) were recognized by his appointment as the Chair of the Medical Advisory Committee of the MS Society of Canada. This, and his literary productivity, led to his being a keynote speaker 6 times, both nationally and internationally.

The Division was enriched by the recruitment of several new staff . Janet Ellis joined the CL team at Sunnybrook, bolstering their capacity to address oncology and trauma patients. Lailah Jamal has joined the CL service at TEGH, and Andreia Scalco will join WCH to do psychosocial oncology. CL Division staff acquired distinction at many levels, in multiple venues. Dr. Arlette Lefebvre was invited to speak to the Senate about cyberbullying and also received a Diamond Jubilee Award. Rebecca Pillai Riddell won both the York University Faculty Association Merit Award and the American Psychological Association Division 54 (Society of Pediatric Psychology) Routh Early Career Award for her ongoing and extensive contributions to our understanding of infant pain perception and management. Dr Jane Irvine was listed amongst the top 11 female clinical psychologists for research productivity in a Canadian Psychological Association accredited academic program. At the Canadian Psychiatric Association’s 61st annual conference Anne Bassett won the J.M. Cleghorn Award for Excellence and Leadership in Clinical Research. Claire De Souza won the AAP Junior Faculty Development Award and Bill Mah was a recipient of this year’s Wightman-Berris Academy Teaching Award. Departmentally, Shree Bhalerao was nominated for the Abe Miller Undergraduate Teaching Award, while Raed Hawa and Nadiya Sunderji were both nominated for the Robin Hunter Postgraduate Teaching Award-as was Mark Halman, who also gleaned a nomination for the Ivan Silver Award for Excellence in CMHE. Sherese Ali was a nominee for the Henry

B. Durost Award for Excellence in Creative Professional Activity, which was awarded to Sonu Gaind. Divisionally, Peter Fitzgerald, a Fellow at PMH, won the Fred Lowy Award, while another POPC member, Alyson Stone, received the Max Alexandroff prize. This summary only scratches the surface of the breadth and depth of the CL Division’s activities. The reach of the Division goes even farther- for instance, many members are active participants in the implementation of the departmental Strategic Plan. As a further example, Rob Nolan and Bob Maunder are members of the Ontario Health Survey team, which is constructing a powerful tool for health information data collection from thousands of Ontarians that will enrich future research immeasurably. As well, teams in cancer, congenital heart disease and obesity are all tackling the challenges of moving patients from the paediatric to the adult system of healthcare, a previously neglected phase of vulnerability. The most unexpected reply to the request for contributions to this report, emblematic of the diversity of our activity, came from Saul Marks, as he assisted at the London Olympics, (continuing his extensive work on the mental health of elite athletes), who conveyed the pleasure of being present for a Canadian Bronze medal in diving! Overall, divisional members continue to be productive in research, educational and creative professional activities. The integration of expertise across disciplines, areas of study, and patient populations will continue to be a marker of CL division activity into the future.

division of equity, gender and population Overview The mission of the Division is twofold. It aims to provide academic and clinical excellence in health equity, which may be defined in many ways according to diversities in populations, including culture, language, sex and gender, sexual orientation and identity, disability, social class, religion, and race and ethnicity. Health disparities are created by social structures and policies that distribute limited resources, including health care services, unevenly but systematically

favour some groups while discriminating against minority populations. The Division is also dedicated to advancing the understanding, prevention and treatment of mental health problems of women and vulnerable populations through an integration of clinical, educational, research and advocacy. It is also dedicated to advancing the understanding, prevention and treatment of women’s mental health problems. This is done though a focus on social, psychological and biological factors that will further our understanding of the origin, expression, preven-


DIVISIONS tion, and clinical treatment of mental health issues in women’s lives.

Operation The Division is currently led by Dr.Valerie Taylor and co-directed by Dr. Samuel Noh and has representation from a number of academic institutions: UHN – Dr. Leslie Buckley, Dr. Kenneth Fung, Dr. Marion Olmsted,; St. Michael’s Hospital – Dr. Adrianna Carvalhal, Dr. Samuel Law; Mt.

These include an inpatient unit located at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, a Trauma Therapy Program, a Reproductive Life Stages Program, and a Mental Health and Medicine Program located at Women’s College Hospital, he maternal Infant Program at Mt. Sinai and the newly expanded Mother and Babies program at SunnyBrook. The University Health Network continues to focus on clinical, research, and educational activities directed at a variety of women’s health and mental health issues. At the Hospital for Sick Children, we are working in partnership with the Division of Child Psychiatry in the area of eating disorders. Under the leadership of Professor Kussin, UHN Toronto Western Hospital (TWH) has been running the Community Mental Health Program (CMHP). Language-specific programs are available to specifically serve Chinese-, Korean-, Portuguese-, and Spanish-speaking populations. In partnership with the Hong Fook Mental Health Association, the Asian Initiative in Mental Health (AIM), Directed by Dr. Fung provides culturally-appropriate services to Vietnamese and Cambodian Canadians. At Mount Sinai Hospital, Drs. Andermann and Lo offer cultural consultation services and direct care to clients of diverse cultural and ethnic heritage. Drs. Law and Andermann direct the MSH ACT team, serving

patients from Asian communities. Social and Epidemiological Research Department of CAMH consisted of medical and non-medical faculty members who lead research and training programs and contribute to the PGY core lectures and seminars. Drs. McKenzie and Noh direct the Social Aetiology of Mental Illness (SAMI), a post-graduate and post-doctoral program focusing on the social and cultural determinants of mental illness and addiction. The Women’s Mental Health Program encompasses a broad range of services. These include an inpatient unit located at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, a Trauma Therapy Program, a Reproductive Working together, this Life Stages Program, year the members of and a Mental Health the Network created a and Medicine Program mapping of women’s located at Women’s trauma services in the College Hospital, he downtown Toronto area maternal Infant Proand a new collaborative gram at Mt.

DIVISIONS The CCHS Program runs an annual Cultural Psychiatry Day. In the past four years, we organized multisite interactive videoconferences for Cultural Psychiatry. McGill University, University of British Columbia, and University of Calgary participated in the conference on February 29, 2012. The theme of Cultural Psychiatry Day Conference was The Complexity of Acculturation in Children and Adolescents. At the University of Toronto, 150 registered and attended the conference, including over 50 residents of psychiatry. An initiative within this division was work done by the Women’s Mental Health and Addictions Network, a group of community and hospital-based services providing support and clinical care to women who have experienced trauma. The members of the network include The Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic, Sistering Drop-In Centre,YWCA Toronto, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Women’s College Hospital-Trauma Therapy Program, Jean Tweed Centre, Fred Victor Centre CDSS and The Toronto Western Hospital Addictions Program. Working together, this year the members of the Network created a mapping of women’s trauma services in the downtown Toronto area and a new collaborative clinical project to bring organizations together in provide better-coordinated care for women. The Network has met with the TCLHIN to present these projects and seek support for their work and projects.

Postgraduate Training and Education The EGP Division offers core curriculum lectures to residents at the PGY-1 and PGY-2 levels. The Division also contributes to the undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate curricula offered by the Department of Psychiatry, the Institute of Medical Sciences (IMS), and other University departments including anthropology, nursing, psychology, public health, sociology and social work. It offers resident and medical student training, as well as training in various research methodologies for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows through thesis supervision and opportunities for involvement in

research projects.

Research For many years, the Division concentrated on the epidemiology of immigrant mental health, including the psychosocial adjustment of immigrant children. Ongoing research include the long-term mental health impact of exposure to traumatic stress for Aboriginal youth and racial minority adolescents; settlement issues and social determinants of health among immigrants and refugees; identity, diversity, mental health and wellbeing within marginalized populations; mental health practices in the settlement sector; culture, ethnicity, and psychotherapy; pathways to mental health care; racialism and mental health; stigma of mental illness and addiction; and, teaching cultural psychiatry and curriculum development. Research in Women’s Mental Health encompasses a variety of areas, representative of the scope of work done by this program. Funded projects involve work on secondary data base analysis, epidemiological research, projects on innovative treatments for post partum depression and projects involving RTMS and basic science investigations. The Division provides a unique post-doctoral research training program in social determinants of mental health, Social Aetiology of Mental Illness (SAMI). SAMI is based on a CIHR strategic research training grant awarded to Dr. McKenzie and Dr. Noh, the principal investigators of the grant.

Division of Forensic PSychiatry

Current Activities The Division of Forensic Psychiatry is the smallest of the new divisions within the Department with 49 members. It includes 4 professors, including one Emeritus, and 5 Associate Professors. The Division includes a mix of psychiatrists and psychologists and 4 lawyers. Research has 3 major bases: at Waypoint and in the Sexual Behaviors Clinic at CAMH, and in relation to issues of mental illness and offending behaviour at CAMH. All groups have significant international and national links. We are increasingly seen as the centre for forensic psychiatry in Canada, for professional leadership, policy contributions, teaching and research. Prof Howard Barbaree has been appointed Executive Vice President for academic affairs at the Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care to encourage the development of an academic strategy at that facility which is mid way through an exciting rebuilding program. Our work over the last year can be summarized as follows:

Research We have established five significant lines of research based at CAMH but with collaboration with Ontario Shores and other Divisions within the Department, and other academic centers in Canada and internationally. These Streams are: Mental Health Systems Research: to study provincial and national trends in forensic mental health service usage and patterns of violence and criminality associated with serious mental illness. This includes important collaboration with colleagues in Psychiatry and Health Systems and Brain and Therapeutics, including CIHR funded work. Current and planned projects

include: Study of homicide associated with serious mental illness in Ontario Time trends in the forensic patient population in Ontario (1990-2011) – flowing from the above (a), we are documenting the rise in forensic patients in Ontario during the past two decades, and test different hypotheses driving the rise (e.g., has there been an increase in mentally abnormal homicide during this time frame?). Forensic community service provision in Ontario – describing service models of forensic recovery adopted by community forensic mental health teams in Ontario, and their overall effectiveness. Risk, Motivation and Recovery Research: already a major theme with existing projects, we are well positioned to begin generating new knowledge in the field of motivations for violence in SMI populations, violence risk assessment and dynamic risk factors for adverse safety outcomes in forensic patients. We are the first site in North America to collect data on the revised version of the HCR-20 (HCR,Version 3), one of the most widely used violence risk assessment tools in the world. We are also linked with leading investigators in the field of violence risk assessment, which will facilitate collaborations and the dissemination of empirical findings. Further, we plan on integrating our research on violence risk with the recovery model of mental health care to introduce a new conceptual framework for investigating the clinical utility of risk formulations for patients’ violence. Neuroimaging of Impulsive, Aggressive Individuals: Positron emission tomography studies are currently


Divisions underway that seek to understand the neurochemical correlates of impulsive, aggressive behavior in individuals with borderline personality disorder or antisocial personality disorder. These studies investigate monoamine oxidase A binding - a brain protein implicated in aggression and impulsivity. Genetic analyses and fMRI of these populations are also being pursued. Dr. Jeff Meyer is the primary investigator working with Dr. Nathan Kolla. Sexual Behaviours Research: under the leadership of Assoc Prof James Cantor are a series of studies into the aetiology, neuro-imaging and classification of a range of abnormal sexual behaviors and their assessment and treatment. They are using advanced MRI techniques to study the role of the brain structure in pedophilia. The results of this work have garnered worldwide interest, yielding appearances on international news outlets, including CNN, and invitations to present several prestigious keynote and other invited addresses internationally. Currently in development are an international collaboration to study very large samples of still-incarcerated sex offenders using a mobile MRI scanner and an entirely new program of research in the CAMH Sexual Behaviours Clinic examining the typology, assessment, and treatment of hypersexuality and related phenomena.

Education We have been planning for, in partnership with the other sub-specialties and with the support of the Department, the establishment of the Sub Specialty Training Program in Forensic Psychiatry. It is the only accredited forensic program in Canada, although others are planned. The training program is spread over the 3 clinical partners for the Department: Waypoint, Ontario Shores and CAMH. Four PGY 6 residents have just commenced this training. Educational scholarship is of increasing interest within the Division of Forensic Psychiatry. We are very actively involved in undergraduate, resident teaching, and masters student through to post doctoral studies and research.

Dr Simpson greatly enjoyed contributing to the Sri Lanka initiative in February, participating in research developments for residents in Colombo and providing a short course in some core forensic skills.

Contribution to Department of Psychiatry Strategic Directions Forensic psychiatry is very much a particular form of developmental psychiatry, and we know many problems of adults with forensic needs commence in childhood and before. We are very pleased with the emphasis on Child and Youth mental health as child and adolescent forensic work is also an area of increasing importance. Research has 3 major bases: at Waypoint and in the Sexual Behaviors Clinic at CAMH, and in relation to issues of mental illness and offending behaviour at CAMH. All groups have significant international and national links. We are increasingly seen as the centre for forensic psychiatry in Canada, for professional leadership, policy contributions, teaching and research

Forensic psychiatry works with some of the most marginalizes and stigmatized people in the mental health and criminal justice systems. The issues of public perceptions, stigma and violence as it effects the lives of people with mental illness and the media and public portrayal of them are ones we are very aware of.

The Division is actively involved in public advocacy for improved services for mentally ill prisoners and for improvements in law as it effects this population. WE look forward to contribution to these initiatives this coming year.

The Division of Psychotherapies, Humanities and Education Scholarship (PHES) DIVISION DESCRIPTION

The Division of Psychotherapies, Humanities and Education Scholarship (PHES) is one of the newly created 8 Divisions of the Department of Psychiatry that is comprised of the following three areas of focus: Psychotherapy, Health, Arts and Humanities and Research, Innovation and Scholarship in Education (RISE).This past year the Divisional executive engaged in a collaborative and creative process to identify shared areas of interest and synergies as well as to enhance the membership, productivity and academic identity of the three programs.

DIVISION ORGANIZATION

Dr. Susan Lieff is the Director of PHES and Dr. Paula Ravitz is the Associate Director. Dr. Paula Ravitz is the Morgan Firestone Psychotherapy Chair and Director, Mount Sinai Psychotherapy Institute Joseph & Wolf Lebovic Health Complex. Dr. Allan Peterkin heads the Health, Arts and Humanities Program. This past year we were delighted to recruit Dr. Sophie Soklaridis to head the RISE area. Dr Soklaridis is a medical sociologist who obtained her PhD at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, Social Science & Health, with collaboration in Women’s Studies from the University of Toronto. She was recently appointed Department of Psychiatry Annual Report

Divisions Education Researcher at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. The PHES leads meet on a regular basis to share information and advice about program development and activities, as well focus on creative collaborations across the Division.

DIVISION DEVELOPMENTS AND ACHIEVEMENTS

It became apparent early in our collaborations that there was great interest in the Division focusing on the exploration of the hidden curriculum in our Department. The Future of Medical Education of Canada project identified the hidden curriculum as a critical issue that needs to be addressed in medical education. A Hidden Curriculum in Psychiatry Interest Group has begun meeting and is exploring a variety of potential areas for study within our department throughout the continuum of education (undergraduate  faculty development). The interest group has a diversity of representation from faculty who are clinicians and education scientists and we look forward to developing our leadership and scholarship in this highly relevant area. The goal of this interest group is to develop the interests and our expertise in developing education scholarship in the hidden curriculum and to establish a forum for participants to bring ideas and projects for discussion. The Hidden Curriculum in Psychiatry interest group is open to those who wish to participate. Our goal for the coming year is for the Division to identity further areas of synergy in which to direct our energies and foster growth and development within the Division. The leaders within PHES have begun collaborating with a consultant to guide the Division’s strategic planning process. Identifying a core team of faculty members to participate in the development of these directions is in progress. We anticipate having completed this process by January of 2013 in order to guide our work for the next several years.

PSYCHOTHERAPY

An overarching principle that guides the Psychotherapy Section of the PHES Division is that the

psychotherapies are an integral part of comprehensive and integrated psychiatric care and a central part of the bio-psycho-social model of treatment. The Psychotherapy Committee is the administrative body of the psychotherapy section of the PHES Division and consists of: the Psychotherapy Modality Subcommittee Heads; the Psychotherapy Site Coordinators, and resident representatives. Dr. Paula Ravitz is the Committee and Section Head and the Associate Head is Dr. Mark Fefergrad. The Psychotherapy Modality Subcommittee Heads include: Long-term dynamic psychotherapy – Dr. Rex Kay; Brief Dynamic Psychotherapy - Dr. Christine Dunbar; Cognitive Behaviour Therapy - Dr. Mark Fefergrad; Interpersonal Therapy - Dr. Paula Ravitz; Family/ Couple Therapy - Dr. Leo Chagoya; Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy - Dr. Priya Watson; Integrative Therapy - Drs. Daniel Greben and Lesley Wiesenfeld; Group Therapy - Dr. Molyn Leszcz; and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy – Dr. Shelley McMain and Dr. Carmen Wiebe. The Site Psychotherapy Coordinators include: Baycrest Centre - Dr. Rob Madan; Centre for Addiction and Mental Health - Dr. Jan Malat; George Hull – Dr. Chetana Kulkarni; Hincks-Dellcrest Centre - Dr. Diane Philipp; Hospital For Sick Children - Dr. Nicola Keyhan; Mount Sinai Hospital - Dr. Paula Ravitz; North York General – Dr.Victor Feder; Ontario Shores – Dr. Robyn Waxman; St. Joseph’s Health Centre – Dr. Nagi Ghabbour; St. Michael’s Hospital - Dr. Harold Spivak; Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre – Dr. Susan Hershkop; Toronto East General Hospital – Dr. Sabeena Chopra; The University Health Network - Dr. Adrienne Tan; Women’s College Hospital - Dr. Nadiya Sunderji; and Youthdale – Dr. Sylvia Kemenoff. The remaining committee membership includes Dr. Allen Peterkin, Narrative and Healthcare Humanities; Dr. Ron Ruskin, Psychiatry and Humanities; Dr. Sian Rawkins, Cognitive Behaviour Analysis System Psychotherapy; Dr. Steve Selchen, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction; and Drs. Maxym Choptiany and Renata Villella, PRAT representatives. Dr. Solomon


Divisions Shapiro is stepping down as the coordinator of the Therapeutic Communication Program for undergraduate medical students. The Psychotherapy Program is committed to addressing important issues that relate to applicability and accountability of the psychotherapies and to train psychiatrists to be expert practitioners of evidence supported treatments, capable of providing direct service, as well as effective consultation, supervision and collaboration with inter professional mental health professionals in the provision of indirect service. An extensive syllabus and training implementation protocol have been developed for psychiatry residents in the utilization of evidence supported contemporary psychotherapeutic approaches within psychiatry. We also have made resident and mental health provider wellness a priority with the provision of both psychotherapist finding services for residents, and mindfulness based stress reduction groups led by Dr. Steve Selchen. Educational foci also reflect initiatives at the undergraduate, fellowship, faculty development and continuing health education levels. Continuing education and continuing professional development activities are offered in a range of accredited formats including courses, workshops, certificate programs and conferences. In addition to a growing number of accredited CE courses offered through CAMH, the Mt. Sinai Psychotherapy Institute, University Health Network, the Hincks Dellcrest, and the Child Division, educational outreach and knowledge translation and exchange initiatives were conducted with group psychotherapy teaching in China (Dr. Molyn Leszcz) and an adaptation of IPT for Ethiopia developed by Drs. Paula Ravitz, Clare Pain, and Dawit Wondimagegn from Addis Ababa University. Senior residents who trained to become new faculty supervisors included Dr. Lori Wasserman (Psychodynamic, IPT), Dr. Tara Burra (IPT), Dr. Chloe Leon (IPSRT and CBT), and Dr. Shawn Vasdev (CBT). The topic of this year’s Annual Psychotherapy Supervisors Retreat was “Psychotherapy Supervision across the Academic Developmental Lifespan,” and focused

on differing faculty development needs with a presentation by Dr. Susan Lieff and break-out groups for junior, mid-career and senior faculty. Additional faculty development is offered through the CBT Supervisors Group (Dr. Mark Fefergrad) and hospital based peerled psychotherapy supervisors groups supported by a data base of peer-reviewed literature on psychotherapy supervision. This year’s Psychotherapy Day featured invited Dr. Anthony Bateman who also gave an accredited one-day faculty development workshop in Mentalization Based Treatment and The Day in Applied Psychoanalysis featured James Herzog and Jack Tromly. Our goal for the coming year is for the Division to identity further areas of synergy in which to direct our energies and foster growth and development within the Division. The leaders within PHES have begun collaborating with a consultant to guide the Division’s strategic planning process.

hEALTH, ARTS AND HUMANITIES The Health, Arts and Humanities Program, HAH, is an exciting new initiative within the Division of the Psychotherapies, Humanities and Education Scholarship of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto, (www. health-humanities. com).

A compelling international literature demonstrates that physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals who seek exposure to humanities and arts-based learning improve their capacity to think critically and bring enhanced sensitivity, curiosity and creativity to their work with patients. They learn to challenge personal assumptions and biases, to expand their world view and to become more reflective practitioners. This in turn can lead to better self-care, personal balance and greater career satisfaction. The Health, Arts and Humanities focus in our department will advance an enriched understanding of health, illness, suffering, and healthcare provision by creating a community of

Divisions scholars in arts, humanities, education and clinical care. One of our goals is to expose trainees at undergrad and residency levels to the role of arts and humanitiesbased learning and research, reflective capacity and narrative competence. Under the direction of Dr. Allan Peterkin, the HAH program has been instrumental in the undergraduate portfolio program, companion humanities curriculum and other undergraduate initiatives to enhance reflective capacity and narrative competence. This past year the program saw the creation and establishment of an undergraduate visual arts elective at the Art Gallery of Ontario led by Dr Allison Crawford as well as the DUETS series; a conversation around the issues of mindfulness in the arts and medicine facilitated by Dr. Peterkin between a faculty member and a chosen artist. The reflective practice curriculum continues in the core residency curriculum and invites resident to reflect on their practice utilizing a diversity of arts-based methods. The HAH program continues to publish ARS MEDICA, an award-winning biannual literary journal started in 2004, that explores the interface between the arts and healing, and examines what makes medicine an art. We are proud to note that Dr. Peterkin chaired the Health, Arts and Humanities meeting in Banff at this year’s Canadian Conference on Medical Education. This past year, Drs Peterkin and Ron Ruskin have identified faculty within our department who are interested in participating or leading in this area and they are being surveyed regarding their interests and needs. For the coming year we look forward to the first PHES lecture which will be given by James Fitzgerald, journalist and author of What Disturbs Our Blood; a riveting story of the history of public health and psychiatry in Toronto and beyond as told through the lens of his family’s story.

RESEARCH, INNOVATION AND SCHOLARSHIP IN EDUCATION

RISE is focused on making educational activity in

psychiatry more visible and creating opportunities for networking and collaboration. Our goals are to support educational research, teaching, scholarship, and innovation and to encourage a more integrated approach that will embrace both theoretical and applied approaches to education research. Uof T has the largest psychiatry department in Canada and the only department that has formally incorporating education scholarship into their academic program. RISE continues to the academic home for scholars and researchers in education in the Department of Psychiatry. Dr. Susan Lieff was the Acting-Head of the program until the recent appointment of Dr. Sophie Soklaridis as the new Lead for the RISE program, effective July 2012. A needs assessment of the RISE program members and the Department’s Education committees was completed this past year to inform future planning for the program. Additionally, Dr. Susan Lieff has been meeting with residents who have developed a needs assessment to explore resident interest in teaching and education development which will be implemented in the fall. Dr. Soklaridis is enthusiastic about future planning and initiatives for RISE as well as resuming the RISE fellowship which will begin in July 2013.

CAMH Overview CAMH had another outstanding year, continuing to deliver a large amount of clinical care, while achieving a balanced budget, and meeting its targets in the areas of research, education, and commitments to its provincial role. CAMH also completed its new strategic plan (Vision 2020), that includes a realignment from nine to four clinical programs (Access & Transitions, Complex Mental Illness, Ambulatory and Structured Treatments, and Underserved Populations) with seven areas of academic focus more closely aligned with the Departmental Divisions (Addictions, Forensic Psychi-

atry, General and Health Systems Psychiatry, Geriatric Psychiatry, Mood and Anxiety, and Schizophrenia). This realignment will be implemented in the fall 2012. In the spring 2012, CAMH also completed the phase 1B of its redevelopment plan and took possession of three large new buildings on its Queen Street site: the Bell Gateway Building which will house several clinical services (see below), the clinical laboratories, and most administrative services; the Intergenerational Wellness Building which will house the child and adolescent psychiatry and geriatric psychiatry services; and the Utilities and Parking Building, which will also house meeting and education rooms.


FULLY AFFILIATED SITES OVERALL CLINICAL SERVICES

EDUCATION

CAMH continues to work on building an integrated system of services and supports for people with addiction and mental disorders. CAMH served over 27,300 unique clients, accounting for over 6,600 Emergency Department visits, over 4,000 inpatient admissions, and over 507,000 outpatient visits. With more than 300 physicians on staff, a highly committed staff of more than 2,800, and over 1,000 volunteers, CAMH met its aim to improve access to clinical services and decrease inpatient length of stay.

VP Education: Dr. Ivan Silver; Director, Medical Education: Dr. Ari Zaretsky

RESEARCH VP Research: Dr. Bruce G. Pollock Ongoing expansion of CAMH’s research program continued over the past year. The Campbell Family Mental Health Research Institute was established with an initial focus on neural circuitry and brain plasticity. The institute encompasses the Temerty Centre for Therapeutic Brain Intervention, which investigates the use of non-invasive brain stimulation, and the Tanenbaum Centre for Pharmacogenetics, which aims to identify and apply the use of genetic markers to predict response to psychiatric medications. In fall 2011, CAMH’s new Research Imaging Centre opened, adding a new MRI to existing PET facilities. Among the many CAMH discoveries was a PET imaging study published in the Archives of General Psychiatry showing that early withdrawal from heavy smoking led to an increase in monoamine oxidase A, which may explain the high risk of clinical depression in this group. Another CAMH study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute showed that smokers with two specific genetic variants had a high risk of smoking more cigarettes, of higher dependence on nicotine, and of developing lung cancer. Also, CAMH discoveries led to four patents for: genetic mutation screening in Joubert syndrome, an epigenetic profiling technology, the BDNF gene and susceptibility to bipolar disorder, and a therapeutic for stroke-related brain injury.

CAMH continued to participate in a full range of educational activities involving 37 fellows, 71 core psychiatry residents, 20 family practice residents, 69 core undergraduate medical students, 57 elective medical students, and 530 nursing, pharmacy, psychology, social work, occupational therapy, addiction therapy, law, dietician, and other students. CAMH remained active in professional development courses involving health professionals throughout Ontario. CAMH teaching effectiveness scores remained very high over the past year. In July 2012 CAMH will become the first psychiatric institution in Canada to offer all three of the new Royal College psychiatry subspecialty residency training programs (Forensic Psychiatry, Child Psychiatry and Geriatric Psychiatry). In December 2011, Dr. Ivan Silver started as the first VP of Education for CAMH and embarked on an ambitious strategic planning project charting a way forward for education at CAMH that will transform the way education is delivered, improve the student experience, provide teaching support and professional development, provide a home for the RISE program, promote IPE and IPC, integrate patient and family education and related scholarship, and support CAMH as a best practices organization.  In January 2012, Nancy Gribben became the new CAMH Medical Education Coordinator.  Over the past year Dr. M. Pearce has performed admirably as Acting Undergraduate Coordinator while Dr. S. Chatterjee was away on maternity leave. In June 2012, Dr. J. Joannou took over as Acting Postgraduate Coordinator when Dr. H. Flett left on maternity leave. In May 2012, Dr. A. Burhan was appointed the new Coordinator of Continuing Mental Health Education. Dr. A. Crawford became the Director of the Northern Psychiatric Outreach Program at CAMH when Dr. R. Cooke assumed the role of Director

hospital for sick children Overview

The Department of Psychiatry at The Hospital for Sick Children is an academic program dedicated to clinical innovation, advancement and dissemination of knowledge pertaining to mental disorders in children and adolescents, through the provision of ethical, evidence-based clinical care, teaching, and research. The department is recognized internationally for outstanding academic work in a number of areas. Clinical services are delivered through ambulatory, day hospital, inpatient programs, and consultation to medical and surgical units. On a yearly basis, approximately 11,000 ambulatory visits and 100

inpatient admissions are provided

CLINICAL PROGRAMS SickKids-Psychiatry offers high clinical specialization, focused research on the most common mental health conditions resulting in severe impairment, an aggressive program to increase system capacity through the provision of tele-mental health services to remote areas, as well as a concentrated effort in knowledge exchange with primary care practitioners. The clinical programs include Anxiety Disorders, Consultation-Liaison/Medical Psychiatry, Crisis and Psychosis, Eating Disorders, Infant Psychiatry,


fully affiliated sites Neuropsychiatry, and Tele-link Mental Health. The Anxiety Disorders team has played a major role in the development and evaluation of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) interventions for children and youth with anxiety disorders. Through an externally funded initiative, community practitioners are now being trained in these established CBT techniques. Scientists on this team are playing a leading role in an international effort to identify genetic risk factors for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The Neuropsychiatry program provides highly specialized services in the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents with ADHD, Tourette’s Disorder, and other neuropsychiatric conditions affecting behaviour, language, and learning. Scientists on this team have made important contributions in the areas of diagnosis, diagnostic imaging and molecular genetics of ADHD, as well as long term outcomes of patients affected by this condition. The Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry program comprises an interdisciplinary team which provides out-patient and in-patient care to children and adolescents with complex co-morbid medical and psychiatric conditions. Major focus of this program are consultations to Haematology-Oncology, Rheumatology, Multi-organ transplant, Obesity, Chronic Pain, HIV, Trauma, Orthopedics, Genetics and Metabolics, and Neurology. Collaborative care is emphasized including education and support of the medical/surgical teams. The Crisis and Psychosis Program provides care in the Hospital’s Emergency Department, and through its Urgent Care Clinic, Inpatient, and Day Hospital services. The Inpatient and Day Hospital components focus on assessment and stabilization of children and youth affected by early-onset psychosis/bipolar disorder episode and/or higher suicidal risk. There has been a change in leadership in the Eating Disorders program that now functions under a single physician lead and reports to the Division of

Adolescent Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics. As a consequence, the role of the Department of Psychiatry in this program has shifted to a consultative role in the inpatient unit, while maintaining primary care roles in outpatient and day hospital treatment programs. Infant Psychiatry provides consultations, assessments and short-term treatments for infants and toddlers with a major focus on concurrent serious medical illnesses, child protection and family courts involvement, and teen mothers; ongoing professional and public education is provided through the Infant Mental Health Promotion program a coalition of community agencies. The Tele-link Mental Health program provides bilingual consultations and education to children, youth, families, and their clinicians in rural, remote, and aboriginal communities across Ontario. Special protocols allow for consultations to acute mental health inpatient beds to hospitals in Northern Ontario, arson prevention and treatment, and support for children and youth of parents in the armed forces. A pilot project with community health centers in Nunavut is near completion and a new initiative with the Toronto District School Board has been launched.

RESEARCH Research into the causes of and treatments for children’s mental illness is a clear commitment of the Department. SickKids Psychiatry is a major contributor to the University of Toronto academic enterprise. There are active programs in the genetics of mental illness with a particular focus on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Researchers in this area play a major role in local, national and international collaborative efforts to elucidate the genetics of these conditions. Cognitive neurosciences at SickKids is another highly developed research field in which Department of Psychiatry Annual Report

fully affiliated sites cognitive psychology, phenomics and neuroimaging interact to discover the neural basis for normal and abnormal cognitive development. This new knowledge is being integrated into diagnostic, therapeutic and etiologic research. SickKids is committed to the evaluation of the efficacy of existing treatments for the common child psychiatric conditions and to the development and subsequent evaluation of novel interventions for conditions that otherwise have no effective interventions. Members of the Department are leaders in the development and evaluation of behavioural and pharmacological interventions for anxiety disorder, eating disorders, OCD and ADHD. Almost all psychiatric disorders have their origins in childhood. Consequently, the Department is committed to research of mental health and illness in infancy. Child psychiatry, like other aspects of medicine, do not exist in a vacuum but is influenced in its theory and practice by the social, fiscal and political environment in which we operate. Consequently, the Department is actively involved in the public policy debate through evaluation of the care that Ontarians receive in the general community. This research sheds light on the important role of timely after care in maintaining patients in the community following hospitalization and on the importance of systematic evaluation and data gathering at the numerous points of entry into the mental health care system that are available in the community.

EDUCATION SickKids Psychiatry is an important site for advanced clinical and research training within the University of Toronto. These trainees, who are active in neuroimaging, genetics, developmental psychopathology and treatment outcome research, represent the future leaders in academic child psychiatry in Canada. SickKids Psychiatry is also very active in teaching at the Postgraduate level. Core psychiatry residents

as well as the career residents (residents planning to develop a career in child psychiatry) rotate through our department for training in child and adolescent psychiatry. Along with the teaching of psychiatry residents, we are involved in the training of developmental fellows and paediatric residents. Our psycho-pharmacology course developed for residents is a unique course in the University of Toronto educational system; the model for this psychopharmacology course was presented at a national meeting and has elicited interest nationally and internationally. Our group is also actively involved in teaching at the Undergraduate level in the Faculty of Medicine; in 2011 we provided 27 clinical teaching sessions a year, each attended by 6 to 8 students. In addition, we had a total of 23 elective students from across Canadian Medical schools as well as international students who spent between 2 and 4 week electives in our department. These electives are always rated very highly. We have a number of medical observers spend time in our department. Our seminars and clinical teaching endeavours are highly rated by medical students and residents and observers in training. Abel Ickowicz, MD, FRCPC Psychiatrist-in-Chief

INTRODUCTION The Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH) Department of Psychiatry is an integral component of the University of Toronto Department of Psychiatry, active in the Divisions of Adult Psychiatry and Health Systems; Geriatric Psychiatry; and, Equity, Gender and Population. MSH Faculty members provide leadership in a number of University Divisions. Jon Hunter is the Director of the Division of Consultation Liaison Psychiatry; Paula Ravitz is the Associate Director of the Division of The Psychotherapies, Humanities and Education Scholarship, leading the Psychotherapies academic area and Allan Peterkin leads the Health Arts and Humanities academic area. Clare Pain is the Coordinator of the Toronto Addis Ababa Psychiatry Program (TAAPP). Lesley Wiesenfeld is the Associate Director of Postgraduate Education and Molyn Leszcz serves as the University Vice-Chair, Clinical. The MSH psychiatry department has grown to 29 full-time psychiatrists; 18 part-time psychiatrists; and an outstanding complement of allied mental health professionals including nursing, social work, and occupational therapy, along with 18 mental health clinicians working in community programs. There is a strong commitment to interprofessional practice and the provision of patient and family centered care. Molyn Leszcz is the Psychiatrist-in-Chief and Lesley Wiesenfeld is the Deputy Psychiatrist-in-Chief. Marci Rose served as Administrative Director.

ORGANIZATION The department is composed of a number of integrated clinical and research programs. The Adult General Psychiatry Program includes a range of services covering inpatient care; day treatment; transitional care; ambulatory; crisis; trauma; community, along with shared care and collaborative mental

health services. The Inpatient Unit is a 15-bed unit and the ambulatory department, lead by Sian Rawkins sees 800 new psychiatry consultations, 220 crisis cases and 35,000 ambulatory visits annually. Emergency services are provided in conjunction with CAMH in a joint emergency program. We are part as well of the growing Mental Health and Addictions Acute Care Alliance. The Psychotherapies academic area has broad involvement in practice, teaching and research in the contemporary psychotherapies and is lead by Paula Ravitz, the Morgan Firestone Chair in Psychotherapy. The Health Arts and Humanities Program is an interdisciplinary program with broad university wide collaboration addressing the reciprocal impact of the humanities and patient care. In collaboration with community partners such as Hong Fook Mental Health Association,Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care, and Vasantham, the department’s ACT Team and Wellness Program have developed comprehensive community-based culturally and language specific mental health programming addressing the needs of the seriously and persistently mentally ill; forensic patients; and the elderly. Under the leadership of Joel Sadavoy, The Sam and Judy Pencer Chair in Applied General psychiatry, the community mental health programs continue to expand. Joel Sadavoy also leads the Geriatric Psychiatry Program which has used the generous support of the Reitman Family to establish the Cyril & Dorothy, Joel & Jill Reitman Centre for Alzheimer’s Support and Training.

Consultation Liaison Psychiatry is a large program focused broadly on coping and adaptation to serious medical illness collaborating with key hospital clinical programmatic areas. This program receives over 800 patient consultation requests annually and is involved in the care of 10% of all patients receiving care in the hospital at any moment in time. HIV psychiatry, lead by Peter Deroche is broadly engaged with community partners to deliver comprehensive psychosocial care. The Womens Mental Health Program lead by Ariel Dalfen provides ambulatory and impatient consultation to 700 new referrals annually and has expanded its reach into the care of women along the reproductive life span. Active research collaboration is underway in each of these areas. Bill Lancee and Bob Maunder direct the department’s research activities. The educational activities of the Department of Psychiatry cover the breadth of undergraduate, postgraduate, fellowship and continuing professional and community educational events including the highly successful Mount Sinai Psychotherapy Institute. Our faculty members are active in the entirety of the core curriculum teaching, in the psychotherapies; pharmacotherapy and the humanities. We train 16 PGY 2-5 and 6 PGY 1 residents annually. Residents can train in General Adult Psychiatry; Geriatric Psychiatry; Consultation Liaison Psychiatry; Women’s Mental Health and in senior selectives emphasizing the psychotherapies, at times blended with Adult Psychiatry or with Consultation Liaison Psychiatry. We provide training to medical students through year I and year II of the Art and Science of Clinical Medicine, Determinants of Community Health, Foundation of Medical Practice, and the elective Therapeutic Communication course. We train 36 clinical clerks each year along with a large number of elective students from the University of Toronto and across

Canada.

DEVELOPMENTS The department has been engaged in two processes of realignment through the past year within the University and within the Hospital. The new university divisional alignment has created leadership opportunities as noted earlier, and the new Strategic Plan has had similar impact with Lisa Andermann co-leading the Pillar 4 component of the Strategic Plan, focusing on improving Dialogue within the mandate of Social Responsibility and Advocacy. Molyn Leszcz is serving as the Chair of the MSH Medical Advisory Committee and also sits on the hospital’s Senior Management team. This affords opportunity to expand the reach of mental health within the hospital as we improve value and quality of patient care. MSH’s internal review and clinical realignment has highlighted the central role psychiatry plays as we implement our hospital mental health strategy. This strategy includes integration of mental health care in every aspect of care the hospital provides; hospital staff training along with wellness and resilience interventions for staff; and early recognition and prevention of patient behavioral difficulties. Carla Loftus has been recruited as a Clinical Nurse Specialist and works closely with Lesley Wiesenfeld in developing the early recognition/prevention program across the hospital setting. Under the leadership of Sian Rawkins, Head of the Ambulatory Program we have expanded our assessment and treatment capacity emphasizing focal biopsychosocial treatments, medication management and the brief psychotherapies. Jared Peck has assumed responsibilities as the Associate Head of the Ambulatory Program. Steven Selchen has been recruited to the Ambulatory Program expanding capacity in mindfulness based interventions as he completes a Masters in Mindfulness Based Interventions at Oxford University. In addition to providing a range of mindfulness based interventions across a range of clinical populations, Steve has also developed a new and very popular program, MBRITE – providing residents in


fully affiliated sites psychiatry with experiential training in mindfulness, reflection and resilience. The Mount Sinai Psychotherapy Institute lead by Paula Ravitz provided a series of intensive training opportunities addressing mindfulness; trauma; and narrative interventions. We also hosted the annual postgraduate Psychotherapy Day; Group Day and Family Therapy Day. Kalam Sutandar has joined the department in a part-time capacity working in the couple and family therapy training program. We have realigned our inpatient services with great attention paid to improving patient flow and reducing length of stay. The unit engaged in a very productive value stream mapping exercise and has quickly begun to demonstrate clinical efficiencies in these areas. After more than twenty years of excellent leadership Edred Flak has stepped down as Head of Inpatient Psychiatry to focus on transitions in care and Madhu Vallabheneni is also leaving the inpatient unit. Marina Golts has assumed responsibility for one of the inpatient teams bringing her expertise in perinatal mental health to the unit and we have recruited Greg Chandler to Head the Inpatient Unit. Greg’s expertise includes CBT and bipolar disorders and after completing his residency at the University of Toronto he completed a fellowship in psychiatry at Mass General. We have recruited a new Clinical Nurse specialist as well, Natasha Persaud as part of this important development. The Reitman Centre has expanded its clinical and educational programs in collaboration with CCAC, the Ontario Behavioral Support Network and the Alzheimer’s Society. They have provided intensive training workshops across Canada in culturally competent seniors Mental Health Care. Caregiver trainings have also been provided in community settings and at the Hospital for Sick Children. The Reitman CARERS program was identified as a Leading Practice in the recent hospital accreditation. New funding has been secured from the TCLHIN and the HRSDC to expand the program. Clare Pain continues her leadership of the Toronto Addis Ababa Psychiatry Program (TAAPP) and has

assumed leadership of a broad allied health training interest group linking University of Toronto Faculty with Ethiopia – the Toronto Addis Ababa Academic Collaboration (TAAAC). This expanded program is currently addressing essential issues around its governance as it prepares for expansion. The Health, Arts and Humanities academic area continues to develop well with innovative programs fostering reflective capacity in psychiatry residents and medical students and university wide interdisciplinary integration, linked to both patient and health care worker wellbeing. Partnerships with Massey College, the Jackman Institute and the AGO are all underway. This group also organized the 17th Annual MSH’s internal Day in Applied Psyreview and clinical choanalysis featuring realignment has James Herzog addresshighlighted the central ing Father Hunger. role psychiatry plays as we implement our hospital mental health strategy.

Allan Peterkin received funding through the Education Development Fund to develop an empirical approach to evaluate medical student narratives. Allan has been invited to join the Advisory Board of the International Health Humanities Network. Allan Peterkin, Rex Kay and Allison Crawford published Body and Soul: Narratives of Healing from Ars Medica, the journal published by the MSH psychiatry and humanities group. The Health Arts and Humanities activity has also served as a platform for the expansion of our hospital Mental Health Strategy focusing on staff wellness and resilience. Partnering with occupational health, nursing and organizational development, we have developed a number of programs to foster coping and reflection; reduce stigma around mental health thru innovative multimedia and contact education. Rona Bloom has been appointed as Poet in Residence and was awarded an Ontario Arts Council Grant to support her writing and narrative workshops with staff.

FULLY AFFILIATED SITES Approximately 3% of emergency patients at St. Michael’s are referred to the Psychiatric Emergency Service and approximately 20% of those are admitted to hospital. The Psychiatric Emergency Service also includes a three-bed Crisis Stabilization Unit and a Mobile Crisis Intervention Team. The 33 bed Inpatient Psychiatric Service, the second component of Acute Mental Health Care, continues to be efficient and effective. This service deals with individuals with complex care needs. More patients with psychotic disorders are admitted and discharged from St. Michael’s Inpatient Unit than any other Inpatient Unit in Toronto. Roughly, there were 550 discharges this year with an average length of stay of 21 days. The Inpatient Service emphasizes general psychiatry and provides expertise in addiction psychiatry, homelessness, HIV-related disorders and severe and persistent mental illness. Four beds are available for clients of the assertive community treatment unit. The Community Mental Health Service carries a considerable volume of outpatient and outreach work. There is a strong emphasis on developing collaborative care models with family physicians and front-line social service agencies in Toronto’s inner-city. This service includes several components: the WREP program for people with chronic psychotic and severe mood disorders; an assertive community treatment team (CONTACT); the Community Connections Intensive Case Management Program; the Collaborative Assessment Consultation and Treatment Program; the STEPS for Youth Early Intervention Program; and an outreach program which provides services at front-line community agencies, hostels and shelters throughout Toronto. CONTACT, our assertive community treatment team, was the first team established in a general hospital psychiatric unit in Canada. Substance abuse, homelessness and physical illnesses are often combined with issues related to severe and persistent mental illness among

CONTACT clients. CONTACT has provided leadership as the assertive community treatment model has developed across Canada by hosting numerous visitors seeking to learn how to implement the CONTACT approach. In addition, staff of CONTACT has participated in several initiatives with regard to assertive community treatment in Ontario. Similarly our model of front-line community outreach has been recognized by the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation as a model for dissemination to the rest of Canada. The Medical Psychiatry / Consultation Liaison Service provide healthcare services throughout the medical and surgical units at St. Michael’s. Areas of particular focus include neuro-trauma, respirology, cardiology, diabetes, women’s health and HIV. An advanced nurse practitioner enhances the functioning of this service. A distinct Geriatric Psychiatry Program has developed including inpatient consultation and outreach in local nursing homes. The Mental Health Service trains students of all professional disciplines. The majority of psychiatric residency training focuses in general adult psychiatry. Training in community psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry and consultation liaison is also well developed. Residents participate in structured psychotherapy supervision involving individual and group modalities. Career rotations are available in a number of areas, as are research rotations. The service also trains undergraduate medical students as part of the Fitzgerald Academy. Scholarly activities are concentrated in a numbers of areas. St. Michael’s is home to the Arthur Sommer Rotenberg Chair in Suicide Studies held until this past December by Dr. Paul Links. The unit includes a research associate and a research consultant and provides training and support to research fellows as well as others developing research and clinical program development related to suicide and suicide prevention. Dr. Sean Rourke continues to lead research in HIV psychiatry and neuropsychology. Areas of interest include mood and cognitive disorders, treatment adherence and rehabilitation and international capacity

As well, Sean directs an extensive array of research activities in his role as Executive and Scientific director of the Ontario HIV Treatment Network. An additional area of focus is interdisciplinary Mental Health Services Research focusing on Inner City vulnerable populations. Based at the Center for Research in Inner City Health, several intervention studies led by Dr. Stergiopoulos are underway as are a number of studies addressing the health, mental health and addiction treatment needs of individuals who are homeless or are frequent users of mental health services.

Significant Developments: Dr.Vicky Stergiopoulos assumed the role of Psychiatrist-in-Chief at St. Michael’s beginning July, 2011. During the past year, a number of initiatives set the stage for renewal and innovation At St. Michael’s Mental Health Service. On the clinical front, the program continues to work on several fronts to improve access and flow. These include development of a collaborative urgent care clinic including psychiatric care, nursing, case management support as well as short-term counseling for individuals being discharged from the Inpatient Unit or our Psychiatric Emergency Services and requiring additional support. Furthermore, following review of wait times in the Emergency Department and inpatient utilization data suggesting an occupancy rate of 99% in our Acute Care Unit, a proposal for extension of our acute care capacity by four beds was developed and approved by senior management at St. Michael’s. The Community Mental Health Service provides an array of direct and indirect services in community settings. A new partnership is being developed with Ryerson’s Department of Psychology for training of psychology and psychiatry residents in cognitive behavioral therapy, individual and group modalities.

Furthermore, mindfulness based cognitive behavioral therapy for depression was piloted with plans to expand our group psychotherapy program this academic year to include CBT groups for anxiety, psychosis and trauma. The Medical Psychiatry Consultation Liaison Service underwent reorganization under the leadership of Dr. Adriana Carvalhal, who joined St. Michael’s in February, 2012. A new centralized access model for both inpatient consultation and outpatient care Areas of particular of individuals who focus include neurohave serious medical trauma, respirology, conditions has been cardiology, diabetes, developed. women’s health and HIV. An advanced nurse practitioner enhances the functioning of this service.

We have expanded the number of dedicated outpatient medical psychiatry clinics to include the Positive Care Clinic, the Women’s Health program, the Diabetes program, the Dialysis unit, the Head Injury clinic, the Cystic Fibrosis program, while a new partnership has been forged with Bridgepoint to extend the support of psycho-geriatric services offered through St. Michael’s. Finally, in efforts to support the development of a comprehensive addictions strategy, an Addictions Pilot model was developed, to address the treatment needs of individuals presenting with addictions throughout the Inner City Health program at St. Michael’s. The model, including a community based transitional case manager and a St. Michael’s based addictions RN, is being evaluated by the research fellows at the Centre for Research in Inner City Health.

FULLY AFFILIATED SITES Chief at the University of Western Ontario. This past academic year also marked the recruitment of three new full time staff: Dr. Tim Guimond, who is building capacity in program development and research related to addictions; Dr. Adriana Carvalhal, to support our HIV focus and clinical innovation in Medical Psychiatry; and Dr. Katharine Charlton, to increase the number of inpatient teams to five. Furthermore, the Service undertook a strategic planning process. The process included the formation of a core team, the engagement of over 80 additional internal and external stakeholders and an inter-professional retreat. As a result of this engagement, our vision and goal is to ‘Lead the Way in Inner City Mental Health’ nationally and internationally. To realize this vision, five strategic directions were identified. These include: 1. Clinical innovation to improve access to quality integrated services, treatments and supports with an emphasis on the care of vulnerable and underserviced populations; 2. Advocacy for equitable funding for inner city mental health; 3. A focus on the patient experience to support recovery and well-being; 4. Scholarship in inner city mental health through policy relevant research, knowledge translation and sustained excellence in teaching and education and 5. An inclusive, growth promoting culture, where people feel valued and engaged in the pursuit of excellence in clinical care, innovation and scholarship. With regards to education St. Michael’s has remained the first choice for training of psychiatry residents at the University of Toronto. In the 2011/2012 academic year we offered training to 9 PGY1 residents and 20 residents pursuing core rotation as well as senior selective rotations research rotations. Furthermore, we offered elective rotation both

through the Psychiatric Emergency Service and Community Mental Health, involving 11 residents. On the undergraduate front we offered core rotations to 42 clinical clerks training at the Fitzgerald Academy, and an additional 18 elective rotations for medical students. In the area of education one of the most remarkable features of St. Michael’s Mental Health Service has been the strong commitment to education and scholarship among nursing and health disciplines personnel. Initiatives include nursing excellence grant support, a nursing fellowship program and the hosting of annual conferences for the RNAO Mental Health Nursing Interest Group. Finally, this year’s Mental Health Service Education Award winners were as follows: Excellence in Continuing Medical Education – Dr. Paul Links Excellence in Undergraduate Education – Dr. Shree Bhalerao and Dr. Kien Dang Excellence in Postgraduate Education – Dr. Katharine Charlton With regards to research, in keeping with the academic mandate of both the Department of Psychiatry and St. Michael’s, the Mental Health Service has been engaged in a variety of research endeavors for the past year, with a continued focus in suicide studies, neuropsychology of HIV/AIDS related disorders and mental health services research. St. Michael’s physicians and scientists held 26 ongoing research grants (24 of them peer reviewed) as principal or co-principal investigator for a total value of $35,003,093 and secured an additional 8 research grants (6 of them peer reviewed) for a total value of $2,407,182. Furthermore, we secured significant funds for 6 program innovations totaling $3,017,600. Our scientists and medical staff published 12 peer reviewed articles as principal authors and co-authored 14 additional peer-reviewed manuscripts and one book chapter.

It address various challenges of becoming a new mother in a non clinical group with the aim of decreasing adjustment difficulties and creating an interface for the clinical population to find resources. RLS has also developed and researched (PI Dr Diane Meschino) a group intervention for mentally ill mothers and their babies (6-12 months) in collaboration with The Hincks Delcrest Centre and the WCH Department of psychiatry is dedicated to this program of prevention and intervention which is in its third year of development. The intervention combines maternal and child psychiatry expertise targeting both mental health recovery and the maternal-child relationship for patients in the WCH department of psychiatry who struggle with parenting due to mood/anxiety disorders or the sequelae of interpersonal trauma.With this intervention we reach a population of infants at high risk for developing mental and medical illness with the intention of treatment and prevention. The RLS program is developing new services for transitional age and young adults with Disorders of Sexual Development who have mental health needs. As this was identified as a large service gap in the system.

Clinical and educational initiatives included expanding our somatic based trauma treatment by piloting a somatic resourcing group for women trauma survivors in a small randomized control trial; providing clinical supervision to residents in Trauma Informed Emotion Focused Couples therapy; expanding our online mental health educational and clinical interventions, expanding our Art not Violence website and offering weekly trauma educational seminars to interprofessional learners and staff. A new partnership with the Art Gallery of Ontario enhanced our creative arts treatment and provides educational opportunities for learners in this treatment modality.

Mental Health in Medicine The Mental Health in Medicine/General Psychiatry (MHM/GP)program has had a very successful year. Both arms of our program, Mental Health in Medicine and General Psychiatry are focused primarily on collaborative or shared care relationships with specialty, primary and community, coordinated by care partners. Our Shared Care relationship with the Taddle Creek Family Practice Program, continues to be rated highly by residents and we have been fortunate to welcome a string of talented residents to provide service and obtain an invaluable training experience at the interface of women’s mental health and cultural psychiatry. We have expanded our MHM program to become part of the unique Centre for Ambulatory Care and Education Complex Care Clinic. Under the new clinic, a patient with heart failure, depression, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and diabetes, for example, who is seeing a cardiologist, psychiatrist, endocri-

nologist and respirologist could have her care managed at the clinic. We are excited to be able to offer this integrated care approach to both patients and learners. Dr. Joanna Barlas, a fellowship trained geriatric psychiatrist has also joined the General Psychiatry team and offers expertise in this area to WCH patients. The team has also been joined by Dr. Erin Carter, a new graduate from McMaster University who has taken on the role of postgraduate coordinator. Mental Health in Medicine has built a new relationship with Oncology, particularly with the aftercare program in Breast cancer. A new hire, Dr. Andreia Scalco, who has a fellowship in C/L and previous experience in psycho oncology is leading this endeavor. We have are now fully engaged in training core residents, both in General Psychiatry (in partnership with Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre) and at the PGY1 level in CL psychiatry (in partnership with Toronto Rehabilitation Institute).We continue to host senior residents in both CL and Shared Care.   The program continues to host several research projects including a novel web-based support group for women with gynecological cancers (Dr Catherine Classen) that has now expanded into a 4 year RCT funded by CIHR.

Community affiliated sites The Family Therapy Training Program is devoted to the promotion of family therapy as a central and integral component of the treatment of Children and Adolescents. This program is an interdisciplinary seminar that introduces an integrative framework of thinking about families and the practice of evidence informed therapies. The program combines theoretical didactics, live supervision of families and group discussion. The training integrates basic beginnings, highlighting the need for a comprehensive family [assessment] formulation to identify a clear treatment plan with the personal and professional self of the therapist. This is explored through the use and understanding of counter-transference, values, culture and a social location of the therapist within the therapeutic system.

Research The George Hull Centre participated in the following research studies:  Family Group Conferencing with Youth Transitioning into Adulthood   This study funded by the Child Welfare Secretariat, Ministry of Children & Youth Services for youth who have been in care for extended periods of time looked at the impact of family group conferencing on youth and further explored its use in assisting youth transitioning to adults.  It also explored how best to train coordinators to deal with the unique needs of this population.  Personalized Services for the Mental Health of Young People in Ontario:  This study conducted through Ryerson University, funded by the Ministry of Children & Youth Services is a change-oriented project   designed to help organizations understand and implement the Ministry of Children & Youth Services’ strategic goal that ‘every child and youth receives personalized services’ which heightened staff awareness of the need to encourage clients to have a voice in program decisions. 

Enhancing Education Performance for Children and Youth Living in Residential Group Care in Ontario:  This study conducted through Ryerson University, funded by the Ministry of Children & Youth Services was developed in response to the Ministry of Children & Youth Services’ strategic priority that ‘every child and youth graduates from secondary school’.  This study aimed to develop a tool box to measure short term outcomes in the educational performance of youth and to understand how best to support children and youth in residential group care to achieve their educational goals.  Effectiveness of Motor Speech Intervention for Children with Speech Disorders:  This study conducted through the University of Toronto and The Speech & Stuttering Institute, funded by the Ministry of Children & Youth Services is aimed at (a) estimating the magnitude of treatment effects, (b) treatment efficacy and (c) identifying the key factors that contribute to treatment effectiveness of motor speech intervention.  52 clinicians from across Ontario, including 2 from The George Hull Centre, are participating in this project.

RESEARCH TRAINING AT HINCKSDELLCREST

Community outreach and public education was enhanced by appearances on TVO by Drs. D. Philipp, M. Korenblum, and R. Alter, speaking on various aspects of children’s mental health.  In addition, Dr. Korenblum co-produced 2 videos--1 on adolescent depression and another on seeking help in primary school children--with the assistance of students from two schools.  The former has been posted on YouTube.

As well as her appointment to the Department of Psychiatry, Dr. Cohen also has an adjunct appointment to the graduate faculty of OISE/UT, Department of Human Development and Applied Psychology.

The Governor-General of Canada visited the Centre in May, to acquaint himself further with the services provided by the residential program. The Centre received Interim Accreditation by the Council on Accreditation in March. Outstanding achievement by 2 child/youth workers was recognized by the winning of the Krista Sepp Award. The Annual Fund-Raiser of the Centre, “Raise A Child’s Smile”, held in May, was a sold-out success. The Centre formulated a new Strategic Plan with five Objectives: 1. Service excellence by incorporating cutting edge methodologies into care provision models. 2. Focus in areas where we are/can be leaders. 3. Strengthen the financial platform. 4. Recruit and retain exceptional people. 5. Build system capacity by partnering with other providers. To this end, staff were engaged in implementation subcommittees, and all 5 objectives are now in the process of being realized. The Fellowship program continued to attract national and international candidates, offering positions to graduates from Quebec, Brazil, as well as McMaster University.

Dr. Fataneh Farnia, previously a Research Fellow at Hincks-Dellcrest Centre and the Department of Psychiatry has taken a position at this centre as Research and Evaluation Associate Director of the Handle with Care in at Risk Communities Project. She also was recently appointed as Assistant Professor with the Department of Psychiatry.

CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS Dr. Nancy Cohen, with Bonnie Pape and Dr. Fataneh Farnia, continue to implement, evaluate and test a mental health promotion training program for parents and caregivers of young children called Handle with Care. Based out of the Hincks-Dellcrest Centre, the project involves 430 participants in more than 16 communities across Canada in Prince Edward Island, Ontario, Manitoba and the Yukon. Dr. Cohen and her collaborators Drs. Fataneh Farnia, Nancie Im-Bolter and Marshall Korenblum continue to analyze data from a CIHR and CHEO funded study on higher order language in adolescents presenting for psychiatric service. Dr. Cohen is also involved in the piloting of an international study of the infantparent program Learning Through Play with Alfredo Tinajero of the Hincks-Dellcrest Centre and Dr. Nusrat Husain.

st. joseph’s health centre

INTRODUCTION St. Joseph’s Health Centre (Toronto) is a community teaching hospital with the vision of being “Canada’s Best Community Teaching Hospital”. The St. Joseph’s Health Centre Department of Psychiatry is a comprehensive program providing services spanning the life cycle. In addition, addiction services at SJHC are grouped with mental health to create a Mental Health and Addictions Program. The grouping of the Department of Psychiatry with Addictions Services under a single medical director ensures integration of mental health and addictions services and facilitates capacity in managing concurrent disorders across the life cycle. Inter-professional care is a cornerstone of the department. Highly skilled providers work collaboratively internally and with the community to provide community based case management, recovery support, shared care and crisis intervention.

ORGANIZATION The department is composed of 3 key components: Emergency mental health and addiction services; Psychiatry Inpatient and Residential Withdrawal Management services; and Ambulatory services. The SJHC emergency department is one of the busiest in Canada and as such the volume of patients presenting with psychiatric and addiction emergencies is one of the highest in Canada. The latter volumes influence patient flow throughout the continuum of mental health and addiction services and as such providers develop a wealth of experience in working with an extensive range of mental health and addiction disorders. The Emergency Psychiatry Team (EPT) is an interprofessional team including both adult and child crisis

workers that service the emergency room 24 hours/ day. SJHC is an active part of the Emergency Department Mental Health Alliance. The department has a 35 adult inpatient unit including a 6 bed psychiatric intensive care unit; a 6 bed adult short stay unit; a 6 bed Child and Adolescent inpatient unit (47 beds) and an adult day hospital. Ambulatory services include a comprehensive shared care program, urgent care, a recovery support program, a community case management program, a concurrent disorder program, and a geriatric psychiatry program. The geriatric psychiatry program provides consultation-liaison services to the entire hospital as well as 3 long-term care facilities in the community. We also have a general consultation-liaison service for the entire hospital. Addiction services span both the departments of Family Medicine and Psychiatry but are integrated with multiple programs throughout the hospital. Addiction services include emergency addiction crisis workers, addiction medicine consultation-liaison service, addiction medicine physicians and an extensive harm reduction program. In addition, SJHC is the only hospital in Ontario with a residential withdrawal management service on its campus. Community input is formally organized through a perpetual Mental Health and Addictions Population Panel that is co-chaired by a person with lived experience and community organization representative. Representation on the population panel is provided by an extensive array of community agencies and persons with lived experience.

Developments and Achievements The commitment to post-graduate education continues to grow. The St. Joseph’s Department of Psychiatry is actively pursuing excellence as a Community Department of Psychiatry Annual Report

community affiliated sites Teaching Department of Psychiatry. As a community affiliate with the University of Toronto Department of Psychiatry, our department provides opportunities for clinical teaching in comprehensive mental health and addiction programs spanning the life cycle from children to elderly. We are delighted to have been able to recruit five new faculty with particular interest in teaching and education. Drs. Andrew Howlett, Rebecca McEvilly, Lori Weisberg, Tara Burra and Nadiya Sunderji are new additions to our roster and will assist in expanding our educational capacity. Furthermore, Dr. Nagi Ghabbour, will be shifting his educational role into a senior mentoring role and passing on his portfolio as Postgradutate Site Coordinator. We are indebted to Dr. Ghabbour for his dedication and hard work over the years as Postgraduate Coordinator. Dr. Ghabbour will act as mentor to Dr. Andrew Howlett who has accepted the role of Postgraduate Coordinator, effective September 2012. Community Mental Health has moved towards a new “team” model of care and will refocus its priorities to inpatient and ER population, followed by current outpatients and external referrals. Clients will be followed over their episode of care by one of four teams consisting of three clinicians along with two psychiatrists. The reorganization of our ambulatory services into a comprehensive Collaborative Care Clinic will provide more opportunities for resident education and knowledge translation. With the recruitment of Dr. Sunderji, the department is one step closer to providing comprehensive post-graduate training opportunities in both collaborative care and health systems.

surrey place centre Overview Surrey Place Centre (SPC) is a community affiliated teaching site within the University of Toronto. As an interdisciplinary community-based agency, SPC delivers a broad range of specialized clinical services and programs to enhance the health and well-being of people of all ages living with intellectual (developmental) disabilities (ID), with and without autism (ASD), in keeping with the standards of Accreditation Canada.

PROGRAMS AND SERVICES SPC offers interdisciplinary assessment, diagnostic and

treatment services through a variety of developmental and autism programs for persons with ID, their families and caregivers living in the Toronto area as well as extensive education and consultation services to community agencies (www.surreyplace.on.ca). The Centre also provides specialized clinical and mental health consultation to adults in remote northern Ontario communities via video conferencing and is the co-lead in the Tri-Region Alliance (Central Ontario Network of Specialized Care), one of four provincial Networks of Specialized Care (www.communitynetworks.ca), serving adults with co-existing mental health and/or behavioural issues Department of Psychiatry Annual Report

105


FULLY AFFILIATED SITES Other specialized services at SPC include the Augmentative Communication and Writing Aids Program (ACWA), an interdisciplinary clinic designed to promote clients’ communication, and two interdisciplinary Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder clinics, one for children and one for adults. SPC is the research and clinical hub for the Autism Treatment Network – ATN Toronto site (SPC lead Dr Alvin Loh, developmental pediatrician – http:// www.autismspeaks.org/science/resources-programs/ autism-treatment-network ). The ATN (funded by Autism Speaks) consists of 17 sites in North America, 2 of which are in Canada, that follow a clinical protocol for assessment and follow-up of children with ASD. It includes lead autism specialists (often developmental pediatricians), medical subspecialists (GI, Sleep, Metabolics, Genetics, Neurology, Psychiatry etc), and other clinicians (Psychology, Behaviour Therapy, Speech Language Pathology, Occupational Therapy), and family advisors, who meet and discuss strategies for the improvement of various aspects of care. The ATN also functions as the Autism Intervention Research Network on Physical Disorders, funded by the U.S Health Resources and Services Administration. The BMACKE (Behavioural Medical Assessment of Complex Kids and their Environment) service is now into its second year. This multidisciplinary team offers home and school-based assessments and interventions to children up to 18 yrs presenting with complex mental health and behavioural concerns. The Developmental Disability Primary Care Initiative (DDPCI), jointly funded by the Ministries of Health & Long Term Care and Community & Social Services and SPC (Director Dr William Sullivan, SPC family physician) is aimed at enhancing the health, social inclusion, and quality of life of persons with DD/ID by improving their primary care. Canadian Primary Care Guidelines and tools were updated in 2011and both can be accessed at http://www.surreyplace.on.ca/ Pages/Home.aspx (> Clinical Programs > Medical Services > Primary Care).

Psychiatry at SPC provides consultation to the ATN, BMACKE, DDPCI and Child and Adult SPC Programs. Physicians at SPC (representing psychiatry, family medicine, developmental pediatrics, neurology, and audiology) work collaboratively, together with SPC teams and programs, in providing consultation in response to referrals around physical and mental health concerns.

EDUCATION We continue to provide core training, electives and selectives in ID to medical clerks, residents and fellows in psychiatry, developmental pediatrics and family medicine and other health trainees. Medical subspecialties represented at SPC, working within multidisciplinary teams, permit a broad range of specialist clinical exposure for such trainees; SPC is unique in the community of Toronto in being able to provide collaborative, subspecialty medical training and exposure to health and ill-health, life span and transition issues as these impact on people with ID; as well as working within a model of shared health care with the medical community e.g., family doctors and specialists. Together with Faculty working in the Dual Diagnosis Program, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, core curriculum teaching in ID psychiatry is available for psychiatry residents during their first, second and third residency years. In the first year the focus is on ID in the Emergency Department; in the second there is multidisciplinary clinical teaching at SPC supported by general seminars on ID and ASD; in the third year the focus is on children with ID, and understanding the complex etiologies of psychotic-type presentations in children and adults with ID, with and without ASD.

NEW SERVICES AND CLINICAL TEACHING A key element of the government’s transformation of developmental services has been the establishment of Developmental Services Ontario, a new centralized access point for individuals and families to all government funded developmental services for adults in


FULLY AFFILIATED SITES Ontario. After a rigorous process, SPC was delighted to have been selected as the Developmental Services Ontario access point for the Toronto Region. In July, 2011, SPC was selected as the lead agency for the delivery of new government funded Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) supports and services for children and youth with autism living in the Toronto Region. This important new service will provide ABA-based programming for children and youth with autism, enabling over 1,500 children and youth to receive new services through SPC and its partner agencies. SPC staff launched an ID elective for University of Toronto Year 1 and Year 2 medical students. Around 40 students attended the 6 week seminar series that focused on interaction with individuals with ID and increasing awareness of the main issues in the field, in a seminar format to encourage interactive learning. Evaluations were very favourable and there was strong support to continue the elective in 2013.

UPDATE ON EXISTING SERVICES AND CLINICAL TEACHING The ATN has enrolled over 5000 participants over 14 sites in the last 4 years. It continues to build on multisite collaboration to develop tools for families and clinicians focused on improving standards of care http:// www.autismspeaks.org/family-services/tool-kits. With these tools, the network has highlighted quality improvement initiatives targeted at implementing a care model that will strengthen the use of decision support tools, co-ordination of care processes, and self-management strategies during the childhood years. The BMACKE Clinic is continuing to explore effective methods of interprofessional collaboration focused on timely assessment and treatment of complex mental health and behavioural concerns. The clinical team now includes a behavioural therapist, nurse, developmental pediatrician, and psychiatrist with consultation to speech therapy, occupational therapy and service co-ordination as needed.

Primary Care Initiative In 2011-12, 38 primary care providers in Ontario participated in the DDPCI’s Training Course, and 14 in Workshops, bringing the total number of those trained since 2006 to 179. This exceeds the target set in the 5 Year Plan. This training includes how to assess and treat mental ill-health (emotional and behavioural concerns) in people with ID. At a curriculum enhancement meeting in March, 2012 residents attended from across the province including psychiatry residents from Toronto.

Psychiatry As part of a larger reorginisation of clinical services within SPC, Children and Adult Mental Health Teams were integrated into SPC geographic quadrant teams. This provided opportunity to reorganize the biweekly half day clinical teaching for all PGY2 residents; this new approach better integrates residents’ ongoing understanding of and exposure to ID in their generic rotations and has been very positively evaluated by the residents. Following the Department’s external review in 2004 and recommendation that Psychiatry take the lead in ID teaching, SPC has been offering “A Day in DD” for all third year medical clerks. This year saw each of the departments of Family Medicine, Pediatrics, and Psychiatry providing time for the day in two clerkship rotations per academic year. This shared responsibility further enhances the interdisciplinary aspects of the curriculum. The day has been renamed “Ability in Disability” in keeping with a strength-based approach to caring for individuals with disabilities. More opportunities to meet and interact with persons with ID have been arranged in response to student feedback.

EVENTS AND EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENTS Staff departures: Marika Korossy, Librarian retired after over 30 years at SPC; Marika has contributed immeasurably to physician and other ID health professional training in ID in Canada. As well as being the steward

FULLY AFFILIATED SITES of a unique collection at SPC of library resources in ID she has been involved in psychiatry residency curriculum development and teaching. Her generosity and friendly scholarly approach has been much appreciated by generations of trainees.  Margaret Bissell was Director of Education and the lead in creating interprofessional educational training online modules (e.g., “Casey” and “Mateo”) and classroom workshops that focus on ID as a model of interprofessional practice. This Interprofessional Education Program “Perspectives”, is now offered to health science students from the University of Toronto (Centre for Interprofessional Education),York and Ryerson Universities. A pilot endeavour integrating “Casey” into the PGY2 residency clinical half day at SPC is being undertaken.

Events Dr Bradley was invited to visit the Institute of Mental Health, Singapore under the Singapore Ministry of Health’s HMDP Visiting Experts Scheme. She delivered on a packed schedule of activities that included workshops on psychological therapies and ID (including Books Beyond Words and Intensive Interaction training), presentations on mental ill-health, problem behaviours in ID and ASD as well as consulting at clinical and hospital rounds.
