Medicinal Cannabis for Health Professionals - MANCHESTER
18 Sep 2019 • Manchester, United Kingdom
Abstract:
A 2.5 hr seminar to provide an introductory education around medicinal cannabis, how it works, conditions for prescribing, UK prescribing pathway, research and much more. Medicinal Cannabis (MC) was legalised in The UK in November 2018 after the UK Chief Medical Officer agreed that cannabis is a medicine. It has now moved from Schedule 1 of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 to Schedule 2, allowing clinicians listed on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council to prescribe it. GP's in a shared care arrangement with a specialist can also prescribe. There is strong global clinical and peer-reviewed scientific evidence that MC may be of benefit in: chronic pain, Multiple Sclerosis, nausea in cancer related chemotherapy, drug resistant epilepsy, and for palliative care. In the UK, the prescribing clinician may prescribe MC for any condition where there is clinical justification. All presenters will be available to take questions panel style at the end.
