TARGET AUDIENCE

This course is designed for physicians, certified registered nurse anesthetists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and other medical care providers who must maintain state-of-the-art knowledge of the anesthesia specialty or are impacted by it.

Various therapeutic uses for ketamine have emerged and it is important for anesthesia providers to become abreast of the newest research into ketamine use and its clinical usefulness in treating a variety of conditions (e.g. mental health disorders, chronic pain, neuropathic pain, etc.).
