 Webinar event for Journey Clinical and Fluence community members

This course offers 1.00 hour of self-study/home-study CE credit.

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is a new therapeutic modality in which ketamine is used as an adjunct to psychotherapy to help eligible patients experience sustained improvement in symptoms and clinical outcomes. During KAP, eligible patients self-administer sublingual ketamine in the context of a psychotherapy session with a qualified licensed mental health professional. Like any new modality, questions arise about scope of practice from all the stakeholders involved, including mental health professionals, insurance providers & patients alike. Join industry leaders Fluence, Journey Clinical, and Bruce Hillow, Esq for a roundtable discussion about how to navigate this timely and important topic. This is a webinar was recorded for members of the Journey Clinical and Fluence communities and is now available as an on-demand CE program.

Disclaimer: This webinar does not represent legal advice. The organizers of this event recommend that you obtain legal guidance from your attorney prior to implementing KAP into your clinical practice.
