I’d like to let you know that the Royal Society of Medicine, in collaboration with Integro Medical Clinics, will be holding a comprehensive one-day conference on cannabis medicines.
Keynote speakers will include international leaders in cannabis research and pharmacology, a leading UK health policy adviser, and leading prescribers of cannabis medicines.
The meeting will update doctors and healthcare professionals on the practicalities of safe and effective prescribing of cannabis medicines while navigating the UK’s regulatory climate relating to cannabis medicines. Further topics will include the history and development of cannabis medicines, and a practical understanding of the formulation, dosage and applications of these new and exciting medicines.
The event will be of special interest to a wide range of clinicians including those interested in pain management; GP’s, rheumatologists, gastroenterologists, neurologists, women’s health specialists, psychiatrists, oncologists and palliative care doctors, public health doctors, health policy makers alike – as well as lay people with an interest in the field.
This will be a friendly and informative event, designed to promote a safe and practical understanding of the use of cannabis medicines, which can be of benefit to so many of our patients. We can promise good company (and excellent RSM refreshments for those who can attend personally!).
