Driscoll Hall Auditorium, Villanova University
The subject of medical marijuana has become important for practitioners in all disciplines to have awareness. Its use within hospitals and health systems have become critical to manage, and clinicians must have a working knowledge of what to expect when patients are in their care while on medical cannabis. This day-long conference will educate clinicians in various disciplines – nursing, medicine, pharmacy, social work, and nutrition – to expand their knowledge base and ability to safely treat and manage patients from pediatrics to geriatrics. Explore the legal ramifications while caring for patients who have been certified to use cannabis products.
It is not the role of this conference nor the sponsors to debate or have opinions on whether or not the role of marijuana within medicine is appropriate; rather, the conference will focus on the role of the clinician in providing safe, legal, and informed care to patients taking these products under the certification of an approved provider.
