MEDICAL CANNABIS

Medical Cannabis Education Course

With the recent passages of legislation allowing the use of medical cannabis, the need for education and training for medical providers and those working with individuals using addicitve substances is paramount.

What is this course?

The Medical Cannabis Education 4.75-Hour Course has been approved by the Utah Department of Health and satisfies the Utah educational requirements to become a practitioner in the Utah Medical Cannabis Program.

With the passage of the Utah Medical Cannabis Act, Utah state law requires at least four hours of medical cannabis-specific continuing education for qualified medical providers.

Course content is designed by professionals and faculty with the University of Utah School of Medicine.

I don’t intend to recommend medical cannabis. Why would I take this course?

With the passage of the Utah Medical Cannabis Act, Utah patients will be seeking expert advice and guidance for medical cannabis options. Some of your patients may already be utilizing medical cannabis options, and your practice will need to understand the physiologic effects of cannabis as well as potential drug interactions.

Even if you do not intend to recommend medical cannabis, expertise in the endocannabinoid system and medical cannabis is key to providing expert care for patients’ overall health. Doctors, pharmacists, nurses, psychologists, and other health professionals who become educated in these issues will be distinguished by their ability to address patients’ health questions related to the endocannabinoid system and the clinical aspects of medical cannabis.
