1000s of Australians are self-medicating with illegal cannabis to treat a range of serious conditions, this course aims to increase GP awareness of the role of medicinal cannabis in the treatment of chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting.

Relevance to General Practice

A recent survey revealed Australian GPs get constant inquiries from their patients about medicinal cannabis, but the majority of GPs feel their knowledge is inadequate to discuss its access, safety, and effectiveness. Proper training and education around medicinal cannabis will enable GPs to talk to their patients and deter them from using illegal cannabis.
