Event description

Description

Canada is on the cusp of cannabis legalization. Education is crucial, now more than ever, to help creating a foundation to remove the stigma and provide an evidence based understanding of the pros and the cons of this legislation. Health care providers need to make an informed decision of how medical cannabis can affect, benefit and provide quality of life, to the patients they manage.

To begin the discussion, a small group of physicians who work in the areas of chronic pain and mental health held focus groups to identify the knowldge gaps and offer one of the first conferences in Edmonton, focusing entirely on this subject.

The Marijuana Day Conference will provide a various presentations, with an evidence-based approach, to enable health care providers to make informed decisions and overcome the challenging role when a patient requests access to medical marijuana.
