Target Audience

This course is designed for pharmacists, nurse practitioners or other health care professionals involved in the comprehensive medication management of psychiatric and/or neurological patients.

Session Summary

Pharmacists can play an important role in evaluating the evidence to support the use of cannabis-based products to treat psychiatric and neurologic disorders and provide patients with the necessary education to make more informed decisions about treatment.
