ACNEM and Global Health Initiative Australia present this two-day medicinal cannabis prescribing masterclass aimed at doctors, nurses, pharmacists, naturopaths, Chinese medicine practitioners as well as other allied healthcare practitioners who want to be informed about medicinal cannabis, and in particular Cannabidiol (CBD). Currently only doctors and some nurses can prescribe medicinal cannabis, however all healthcare practitioners should understand this unique medicine as many of your patients are likely to be taking it, and regulations may change in the future. Topics include chronic pain, mental health (anxiety, depression, PTSD, sleep disorders), Multiple sclerosis, Osteoarthritis and more. The course is strongly focused on interactive case-based group learning, and features US-based medicinal cannabis expert, family physician (and retired Colonel) Dr Philip Blair MD and is supported by a host of Australian experts and doctors who are experienced in prescribing medicinal cannabis.

This masterclass will be capped at 50 registrants, so please register now to secure your place.
