I am focussing on Mental Health issues alone. I may have also missed information that could have answered this question as there was a lot of information to review. Is there some type of Form/Document available in this process where it can be demonstrated that the patient has undergone sufficient different types of therapies associated with their Mental Health disorder. Should they be encouraged to try other potential pioneering treatments eg Ketamine, micro dosing of psilocybin for "treatment resistant depression"? It reads as if, once the request is made, the physician has to comply with the instructions outlined. Does trying to suggest other therapies make the physician appear as if he/she is contravening this legal process?
