PCQN Monthly Webinar – Psychedelics In Palliative Care: An Introduction (Josh Biddle)

Josh Biddle is the Medical Director of Outpatient Palliative Care at the UCSF affiliated Marin Health Medical Center. He recently finished his Palliative Care fellowship at UCSF where he was one of the inaugural fellows in the Global Palliative Education Collaborative (GPEC) between UCSF, Tulane, and Harvard. He was also one the inaugural fellows in the UCSF Fellows Leadership Cohort. He is currently a study physician on the UCSF Psilocybin for AIDS Survivors Study, in which psilocybin, in conjunction with group therapy, is being used to treat demoralization in long-term AIDs survivors. In addition to bringing high quality palliative care to his native Marin County, Josh is interested in continuing to support the delivery of high quality palliative care in the developing world and in researching the use of psychedelic medicines, particularly psilocybin, to treat existential and psycho-spiritual distress in patients with life limiting illness. Josh is a graduate of UCSF medical school and completed his internal medicine residency at Stanford.
