About this event

Given high rates of occupational stress, health care workers can be prone to burnout. As COVID continues to place additional strain on care providers, it is critical to highlight the need for care providers to also care for themselves. Dr. Dames developed Roots to Thrive-Ketamine Assisted Therapy (RTT-KAT), an innovative program that combines community and connection with psychedelic-assisted therapy. RTT-KAT helps health care workers develop resilience by cultivating factors that mitigate stress and promote thriving.

Presenter

Dr. Shannon Dames currently works as a professor of nursing at Vancouver Island University, a director of a resilience development and ketamine-assisted therapy program (RTT-KaT), and as a researcher specializing in core factors that promote resilience (including psychedelic medicines).

Moderator

Dr. Uta Sbotofrankenstein is the Research Navigator for Mid- to North-Island at the BC SUPPORT Unit Vancouver Island Centre.
