Expert Update in Therapeutic Uses of Cannabinoids


Activity Overview

This 3.5 hour program provides an introduction to medicinal cannabis (medical marijuana).  These modules provide foundational knowledge about medicinal uses of cannabis and are intended to satisfy the educational needs of clinicians who may evaluate and treat patients receiving medicinal cannabis.

Patients need information and will turn to you -- their physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, and other healthcare providers -- for answers.
