Essentials of Medicinal Cannabis: What Practitioners Need to Know
A course designed to educate practitioners on evidence-based medicinal cannabis – its uses, prescribing, herb-drug interactions and other safety issues.
Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 May 2018, 9am-5.00pm
National Institute of Integrative Medicine, Level 3, 11-23 Burwood Rd, Hawthorn, Melbourne
Whether you want to prescribe or just want to be informed, this two-day interactive course is a must for responsible doctors and allied healthcare practitioners.
Completing this course will help healthcare practitioners understand the science of medicinal cannabis (MC); many of the common clinical applications; how to prescribe it and how to ensure patients are safe; and will debunk some of the myths around MC. It will assist medical practitioners with knowledge about the regulations surrounding prescribing of medicinal cannabis, including how to apply to prescribe medicinal cannabis under the TGA Authorised Prescribing Scheme. The course features US medicinal cannabis expert Dr Jeffrey Hergenrather MD and a host of Australian medical and allied health practitioners and academics with expertise and experience in medicinal cannabis.
