Rapid Access Clinics for low back pain: immediate access to Toronto Central LHIN RAC LBP program

March 22, 2019

We would like you to be aware that the St. Michael's Hospital site of the TC-LHIN Rapid Access Clinic for Low Back Pain (RAC-LBP) program has started seeing consults. They are continuing to build their number of advanced practice providers, but have capacity to see patients even with their current staffing complement. 

If you haven't already done so, please register for the RAC-LBP at the following link for the mandatory training module in order to begin referring. There is no wait list. Upon completion of the online registration and learning module (approximately 15 minutes of your time), you can begin to refer patients within 2-3 days. Providers previously enrolled through the ISAEC program do not need to repeat their registration and my contact to receive the updated referral form.

A reminder that RAC-LBP referrals are triaged to a participating site based on patient postal code so your patient may not necessarily be referred to the St Michael's site.

Please note that questions about this program can be directed to Central Intake office by calling 416-967-8617 or contact Shama Umar at the Toronto Central LHIN, at
