Ketamine And The Importance of Comprehensive Training

As clinicians, we are responsible for ensuring that our patients receive the highest quality of care. One of the most exciting developments in this regard is the increasing evidence for the efficacy of ketamine therapy for a range of psychiatric and chronic pain conditions. Research has consistently demonstrated that ketamine infusions can be an incredibly beneficial and effective treatment for conditions like depression, anxiety, PTSD, and chronic pain. Incorporating this treatment into your practice can provide your patients with a safe and effective treatment option.

However, as with any new therapeutic approach, ketamine infusion therapy requires specialized training to administer effectively and safely. Therefore, we encourage clinicians to obtain the necessary training to offer this service with a proper understanding of how ketamine works and the risks associated with its use. Practitioners can confidently offer ketamine therapy while providing patients with a safe and effective treatment option.

It is essential to obtain training that complies with the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) recommendations.  Evidence-based didactics, supervised clinical infusion experience, and ongoing support and mentoring are critical to implementing ketamine therapy into your practice.

The future of medicine is here. By embracing ketamine infusion therapy in your practice, you will be at the forefront of a revolutionary approach to treatment and make a lasting impact on the lives of your patients and how we treat mood disorders and chronic pain.

New Advancements in Ketamine Therapy

Our advanced training course is designed to provide clinicians with the knowledge and skills to deliver safer and more effective ketamine therapy with up to 50% greater effectiveness and 90% higher patient compliance rates than other community providers. Our course goes beyond the limited pharmacological concepts of the standard ketamine infusion protocol, expanding into target-controlled infusions and precision medicine to unlock the full potential of ketamine therapy for patients.

The Cutting-Edge Treatment You Need to Know About:
Ketamine Infusion Therapy with Precision Medicine and
Target-Controlled Infusions

If you are a clinician interested in providing ketamine-based therapy to your patients but don't feel confident in your ability to do so safely and effectively, consider enrolling in KRI's "Mini-Fellowship" program. This intensive training program complies with all APA and ASA professional recommendations for training in ketamine therapy.

It will provide you with everything you need to use ketamine therapy safely and effectively in your practice - from didactic lectures led by expert educators to hands-on clinical experiences at a fully operational infusion center. You'll also have access to ongoing personal mentoring from experienced clinicians throughout the duration of the program and beyond.

Our Goal

Our goal is to train the Top 100 Ketamine Clinicians in the United States. Our graduates will become leaders in their field, highly respected ketamine experts, and serve as professional examples of clinicians providing the safest and most effective ketamine therapy available.

Propper didactic and clinical training is vitally important as ketamine therapy is recognized as an effective treatment modality for mood disorders. Authors of the American Psychological Association (APA) Consensus Guidelines for ketamine therapy have suggested an alarming lack of adherence to safety guidelines among providers, creating a potential risk to patient welfare. Their estimations suggest that only a small portion - less than 5% - of ketamine providers adhere to the selection, evaluation, and safety standards.* This disconcertingly small number may be a sign that much of the ketamine treatment being provided in local clinics is not meeting essential safety standards, potentially creating risk to patients who receive care.

To ensure that high standards and effective treatment in ketamine therapy are maintained, the "Mini-Fellowship" training program has been developed. Our intensive training program provides practitioners with the most up-to-date evidence-based education and training in ketamine therapy, supervised clinical experience administering ketamine therapy, and personalized mentorship available to ensure that the highest standards are met.

Understand the Basics of the Standard Ketamine Protocol — Then Take it to the Next Level.

Our training course is designed to provide clinicians with a comprehensive and superior understanding of ketamine therapy, including the evolution and development of the standard ketamine infusion, including its inherent limitations. The standard ketamine infusion has gained attention recently as a potential treatment for mood disorders such as depression and anxiety. However, it is becoming increasingly clear that when this treatment is removed from a controlled research environment and applied in community practice, its effectiveness is not as high as initially suggested by research studies.(references: 1, 2, 3 ,4, 5)

The Imprecise and Highly Variable Nature of Standard Ketamine Therapy

This can be attributed to many factors, such as the lack of personalized dosing strategies and a failure to consider individual patient variations. Standard dosing regimens, such as a fixed mg/kg based on body weight, do not consider variations in body mass, volumes of distribution, or variations in CYP450 metabolic pathways. These variations can significantly affect the pharmacokinetics of the medication and, thus, the effectiveness of the treatment.

Our advanced training course goes well beyond the limited selection criteria and pharmacological concepts of the standard ketamine infusion protocol. It expands into rigorous patient selection and evaluations, combined with target-controlled infusions and precision medicine, to unlock the full potential of ketamine therapy for patients. By considering individual variations and tailoring the treatment to each patient, our graduates are equipped with the knowledge and skills to provide safer and more effective treatment using the latest research and pharmacological approaches.

Precision Medicine and TCI for Ketamine: Achieve Up to 50% Greater Effectiveness

Clinicians trained by us can be confident that they possess the skills necessary to successfully deliver ketamine therapy in accordance with all recommended professional guidelines and with up to 50% greater effectiveness and 90% higher patient compliance rates than other community providers.

Learn More About Ketamine Therapy for Mood Disorders

Ketamine Therapy Gains Recognition

Ketamine infusion therapy is an exciting new development in the world of psychiatry. It has shown great promise in the treatment of a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

During the recent COVID epidemic, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder rates have all risen dramatically. Media outlets have been educating the public about the tremendous therapeutic benefits of ketamine and other psychedelics for the rapid relief of mood disorders and related conditions.

Health insurance companies in both Canada and the U.S. have taken notice and may soon start covering ketamine-based therapy treatments. As awareness grows around this new treatment breakthrough, many more people who suffer from mental health issues will be able to benefit from ketamine-based therapy that has been proven to be effective.

The Need For Well-Trained Ketamine Clinicians

The Rise of "Ketamine Clinics"

Ketamine-based therapy is increasingly recognized as a rapid and highly effective treatment for mood disorders — with success rates that exceed 75% or more — and patients who haven't received help from conventional approaches are demanding new treatment options. Unfortunately, to meet this new demand the number of questionable "ketamine clinics" and "at-home" ketamine services has also risen.

Despite its effectiveness in treating mood disorders, the "one-size-fits-all" ketamine therapy approach employed by many clinics cannot replicate the same level of relief seen in controlled clinical studies. Moreover, some treatment centers may not provide sufficient preparations to patients or adhere to strict patient selection criteria as recommended by medical organizations, leading to less-than-optimal results.

Unfortunately, certain commercial interests are attempting to "expand the accessibility" of ketamine therapy by treating patients remotely and providing them with nasal sprays, lozenges, and pills that contain ketamine to use at home. Despite its potential for a gain in profits, this practice is strongly opposed by experienced clinicians and professional organizations because of its lack of credible evidence-based efficacy and potentially hazardous side effects.

Various elements have caused these issues to arise, but inadequate education and training in ketamine therapy among some professionals has substantially contributed towards this dilemma.

Lack of Adequate Training

Sadly, too many clinicians may have taken shortcuts for various reasons and not sought adequate training programs before starting ketamine therapy. This could be due to the apparent simplicity of the ketamine infusion, which lulled some clinicians into thinking that formal training may not be necessary. However, ketamine therapy is unlike any other medical procedure and has many complexities and unique aspects, something that many without adequate training fail to recognize.

Poor Training Leads to Poor Outcomes

Although most ketamine providers cite research studies indicating that up to 70-75%% of people can improve following ketamine therapy, recent studies have shown that ketamine may not be nearly that effective when it is given by clinicians in a community ketamine clinic setting. Some believe a more realistic number would be only 35-45% of people respond to ketamine infusions when it is given in an outpatient ketamine clinic or center.(references: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

These subpar outcomes may well be the result of a lack of adequate training, experience, or understanding of the unique aspects of this remarkable but complex treatment.  Not only are the outcomes much poorer, but there was also an increasing number of adverse effects and potential safety issues for patients were noted.  This has prompted professional organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association to make recommendations emphasizing the importance of obtaining proper ketamine-based training before offering ketamine therapy to patients.

This Causes Concern for All

In fact, according to authors of the American Psychological Association (APA) consensus guidelines, it is estimated that fewer than 5% of ketamine providers adhere to the standards for selection, evaluation, and safety recommendations. This is a cause for concern, as deviation from these guidelines and from the evidence provided by randomized controlled trials and long-term follow-up studies may put patients at increased risk. One author states, "the further we deviate from established standards, the greater the risk to patients." (reference:  6)

Professional Organization Recommendations

To ensure the safe and successful use of ketamine, clinicians offering any form of care must be properly trained and educated. To help meet this growing demand, in 2017 the American Psychiatric Association (APA) released Consensus Guidelines outlining the qualifications and comprehensive training necessary to provide health professionals with the tools they need to safely and effectively use ketamine-based therapy in their practices.

In addition, states are beginning to pass strict laws regarding the safe use of ketamine for the treatment of mood disorders, such as the one passed recently in Utah (UT-58-1-510), which will directly impact ketamine centers not only in Utah but in other states as similar measures are adopted.

Included in those recommendations was the need for didactic educational training and "hands-on" clinical experience administering ketamine infusion therapy under the supervision of more experienced clinicians. Allowing practitioners to gain both an intellectual understanding of ketamine therapy and develop the essential skills and techniques necessary to become proficient in the safe administration of ketamine to their patients.

Also, practitioners need to be aware of new laws regarding the strict avoidance of moderate to deep sedation while using ketamine and be trained in appropriate airway management techniques.

Training Programs Vary Greatly in Content and Quality

Many organizations are offering ketamine training, but the quality of these programs varies. Clinicians who are new to ketamine therapy and seeking education may find it difficult to determine which ones are reputable and offer comprehensive instruction. Often, the programs are led by multiple clinicians with varying levels of clinical knowledge or experience. This can make it very difficult to form a cohesive and effective understanding of ketamine therapy.

It is important to look for programs that offer all of the training components recommended by the APA, including didactic education, supervised clinical training, and individual mentoring. It is essential that any program offering ketamine-based therapy training includes real-world experience administering ketamine therapy under the close supervision of more experienced clinicians.

On-Line Programs versus Actual Clinical Training

On-Line Programs

Many training programs are being conducted "online" and have the apparent advantage of offering inexpensive, convenient, on-demand modules for training. Although this format is appealing, pre-recorded online program modules can't answer important questions that often come up during training sessions. In addition, they do not provide any form of supervised "hands-on" instruction as recommended by the APA. Lastly, they do not provide any form of ongoing personal clinical guidance after the course to assist you as you begin your infusion program.

Clinical Training Programs

On-site clinical training programs are usually more expensive but provide an optimal environment for learning about ketamine therapy. Participants benefit from receiving in-depth instruction and direct guidance from experienced clinicians. This type of program meets all professional organizations' (APA and ASA) recommendations for training. Also, it allows for personalized mentoring and coaching after completion of the course so that clinicians can be sure they are adhering to best practices when administering ketamine to their patients.

Furthermore, many medical liability insurance companies recommend or may require this training for their clinicians to be adequately covered and insured. This is because they recognize that these courses provide the highest level of education, with participants receiving comprehensive instruction and direct contact with experienced practitioners knowledgeable in ketamine therapy.

Consequently, investing in an on-site ketamine therapy training course is an excellent way for clinicians to understand the procedure and its potential therapeutic benefits thoroughly. Furthermore, completing this type of intense educational experience can help ensure that practitioners practice safely and responsibly when administering ketamine to their patients.

Few Options Exist

Unfortunately, very few training programs are available that have qualified and experienced ketamine clinicians who can provide this level of comprehensive educational training experience and supervised clinical training in the setting of an operational ketamine infusion center.

That is the advantage of the Ketamine Research Institute's "Mini-Fellowship" in ketamine-based therapy. This is not a simple online course but an opportunity for clinicians to come and spend several days with us in an immersive learning environment - an actual ketamine infusion center. This type of training is certainly more intensive and expensive to provide, but the education, experience, ongoing support, and mentorship you receive are invaluable.

Ketamine Research Institute is Leading The Way in Clinician Training

Our Experience and Qualifications

The "Mini-Fellowship" Intensive Training Program for Clinicians is a sophisticated and advanced training program that results from over 35 years of clinical research and experience in ketamine practice.

Here's What Our Graduates Are Saying

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course and thought it was a good mix of science and practical knowledge. And of course, it was very helpful as I had no clinical experience with Ketamine and just a little knowledge from what I’ve read...

It gave me a clear road map moving forward. I’m sure there is a lot still to learn, but you never know what you don’t know until it arises....Having access to your forms and waivers, etc. is huge!...

No other training offers an actual infusion for us to experience what it’s like. Having done it now, I can appreciate how difficult it would be to explain it without having done it."
