Cannabis-based medicinal products are an emerging field of clinical practice. Imminent regulatory changes in New Zealand are creating a surge in patient enquiries, concerning a range of therapeutic possibilities. However, a majority of physicians feel more training is needed to understand how medical cannabis products work, in order to administer the best possible care to their patients.
Session times and locations:
We invite you to join New Zealand’s first CME Masterclass in Medical Cannabis, designed specifically for physicians. Learn about the core considerations in prescribing medical cannabis products with neurologist, Professor Mike Barnes MD. Author of more than a dozen books and 200 published papers, Professor Barnes is widely recognised as the leading European expert on medical cannabis. Learning areas include the endocannabinoid system, chemical constituents, such as CBD and THC, side affects of medical cannabis, relative and absolute contraindications, different delivery systems and formats, the patient clinic flow and questionnaire tools, how to use and dose available products, and the regulatory landscape in New Zealand.
The Masterclass in Medicinal Cannabis has been endorsed by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) and has been approved for up to 4.5 CME credits, for the General Practice Educational Programme (GPEP) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) purposes.
