CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TMCI Global (TMCI), the trusted source for professional, science-based medical cannabis eLearning courses around the world, today announced the introduction of its new online course, "Core Knowledge of the Endocannabinoid System."
This course provides the foundational, scientifically-based information healthcare professionals need to know about the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in a concise, accessible, online program. The course, presented by Dr. Dustin Sulak, an integrative medicine pioneer, offers up to 1.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Since its discovery twenty years ago, a huge body of evidence and peer-reviewed research has shown that the ECS is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. TMCI's new course covers key components of the ECS, the function of the ECS in various tissues, organs and bodily systems, synthetic cannabinoids and cannabinoid-opioid interactions.
"As medical cannabis legalization continues to expand across the country, it is becoming more important than ever for nurses, MDs, pharmacists, naturopathic physicians, DOs, functional medicine practitioners and chiropractors – healthcare professionals in all disciplines – to understand how using medical cannabis can impact their patients," said Vicky Mossman, VP of Partner Development for TMCI.
TMCI's wide-ranging, online medical cannabis courses address a variety of diseases and medical conditions. The Clinical Cannabinoid Medicine Curriculum, developed in collaboration with the Society of Cannabis Clinicians (SCC), is the first comprehensive, online, CME-certified curriculum in Clinical Cannabinoid Medicine. TMCI also collaborated with the American Cannabis Nurses Association (ACNA) to develop the first comprehensive, online, CNE-certified medical cannabis curriculum for nurses.
