Speakers:
Ms. Christine Roussel, PharmD, BCOP, Director of Pharmacy, Doylestown Hospital

Description:
As the use of medical marijuana may be controversial, Pennsylvania has crossed the threshold to state legalization, with 2016 marking the half way point in the U.S. for state legislation allowing for medical use. The goals of this webinar are to provide healthcare organizations with both the legal and clinical information to allow for safe care of medical marijuana patients. This webinar will provide an overview of the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Act 16 and its corresponding regulation. The history of medical marijuana use will be explored with detailed information provided on the pathophysiology of cannabinoids, describing its effects on the endocannabinoid system. In addition, there will be discussion on the types of products available for use along with appropriate dosages and monitoring of patients. The impact on healthcare organizations for patients admitted on medical cannabis therapy will be reviewed.
