Ketamine: History and Considerations for Clinicians

Nurse Operating IV Machine For Patient


Webinar via Zoom

Intended for:

Mental Health Professionals and Physicians

Date / Time:

Friday June 28, 12:00 – 2:00 pm.

Program Description:

The use of ketamine has gained a lot of attention in recent years as a potential treatment for psychiatric disorders.  However, research around the safe use of ketamine for such conditions has not yet been well-established.  Many factors need to be considered when assessing the use of ketamine for psychiatric conditions.

This intermediate-level presentation explores three themes relating to ketamine. The presentation begins with a review of the history that led to research on the therapeutic use of ketamine for the treatment of mental disorders. Then we  focus on efficacy data for ketamine, primarily considering utility for major depressive disorder. We also discuss non-approved uses where research exists. Finally, the review discusses some of the issues that clinicians face when considering whether to recommend treatment with ketamine.

Clinical Objectives:

At the close of this presentation, attendees should be able to:

1. Identify ways in which the research on pathophysiology informed the development of randomized controlled trials examining ketamine efficacy

2. Analyze the strength and weaknesses in data on safety and efficacy from randomized control trials

3. Discuss key issues to consider when evaluating the suitability of individual patients for treatment with ketamine
