This chapter focuses on the practical aspects of providing transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in the clinical setting. These include space and facility requirements and equipment used in performing TMS. Also, TMS is done in collaboration with nurses or medical assistants, and personnel and training issues are reviewed. Patient selection and monitoring during TMS as well as patient education and the consent process are explained. To facilitate consistency in administering safe and effective TMS, policy and standard operating procedure strategies are outlined. Finally, billing and reimbursement issues are identified and reviewed.
