Bonus Episode! Psychedelics in Clinical Practice
It’s been a while since I’ve done a true “bonus episode” for the show. As you know, the show focuses on innovation in healthcare and humanizing the healthcare process. Every now and then, we end up getting contacted by someone doing something innovative in healthcare, but maybe outside of our usual topical areas. In these instances, we tend to explore having an interesting conversation on a topic that may challenge our biases as clinicians, open up dialogues in potentially controversial topics, and seek to walk away with a better-informed opinion about the topic. So that’s what we’re doing in this episode!
In this episode, I sit down with Matt Zemon, author of the book Psychedelics for Everyone. He speaks, trains, and practices in a mental wellness company specializing in psychedelic-assisted ketamine therapy.
What we cover in this Episode:
- The research and evidence behind the use of psychedelics in clinical practice
- Understanding the precautions and protocols that need to be in place to use psychedelics as a treatment modality
- Who may (or may not) benefit from treatment with psychedelics
- Ensuring that there is a culture & values fit when selecting a provider in this space
- The biases and stigmas around the use of these types of drugs in clinical research or treatment
- Taking a biopsychosocial approach to healthcare
- Achieving Better Outcomes through entrepreneurship in healthcare
We’re starting to create videos of certain podcast episodes, including this episode, which can find on the YouTube Channel.
