This introductory-level course examines the rapidly evolving aspects of medical cannabis use in Canada, and the vital need for healthcare providers to expand their involvement in medical cannabis education for client care. This course is tailored for new and experienced health professionals looking to increase their knowledge on medical cannabis and how it relates to everyday practice. Health professionals that are currently interacting with medical cannabis patients, or are looking to get involved in this growing area of medical focus, will benefit from the program. Health professionals will learn the details of cannabinoids, terpenes, cannabis consumption methods, pharmacokinetic action, and how to effectively select cannabis strains for clients. Health professionals will learn the fundamentals of the endocannabinoid system, and how to analyze a medical cannabis treatment plan including dosing, titration, and identification of client risk factors.
This course will examine the viewpoints of provincial, federal and professional regulatory bodies and associations on medical cannabis. This will include the role of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and the interdisciplinary health professional team.
