Tools for healthcare providers
Are you a health care provider who would like to refer a patient with a birth defect?
This informational flyer [650kb] provides instructions for health care providers to refer a patient.
If a congenital anomaly is identified in a child less than one year of age, you can refer the parents to the CASY coordinator using the CASY Referral form. [120kb]
The coordinator will discuss the diagnosis and provide information about congenital anomalies including methods to reduce the risk of recurrence of congenital anomalies in future pregnancies. The coordinator will also request consent to collect information for CASY.
If you prefer to get consent from a patient yourself, contact the CASY coordinator for the appropriate forms.
