TORONTO, Oct. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - MediJean announced it has developed a multi-faceted program to help Health Care Practitioners better understand the use of medical marijuana. The new program includes a Continuing Medical Education (CME) course, private cannabis medical communities, and a Health Care Practitioner engagement plan.
"Based on the discussions we are having with professionals in the health care sector and the research we have conducted, it is clear that Health Care Practitioners want more information on this innovative medicine," said Anton Mattadeen, Chief Strategy Officer at MediJean. "We have a plan to help them."
The global perspective on medical marijuana is experiencing a transformation, as more people understand the health benefits of cannabis medicine. CNN's Chief Medical Correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, illustrated this in his August 8th, article "Why I Changed My Mind on Weed." In this publication, Dr. Gupta said, "there are very legitimate medical applications [for marijuana]. In fact, sometimes marijuana is the only thing that works."
MediJean recognizes that the medical community requires a wide body of accessible knowledge on medical marijuana in order to make more informed decisions prior to prescribing its use.
"We have developed an intricate approach to ensuring that this information is provided and to creating strong partnerships with Health Care Practitioners to guarantee this level of service is delivered," said Mattadeen. "This strategy will see us deliver CME courses, offer a secure online community for Health Care Practitioners to engage their colleagues around the world on this issue, and provide a direct means for doctors and nurse practitioners to give us their immediate feedback and for them to receive the most relevant information in return."
MediJean's CME course begins in January 2014 and will cover: cannabis as a medicine, things to know about prescribing cannabis, a review of the pertinent research information available on cannabis, and an overview of cannabis regulations in Canada. The company encourages doctors and nurse practitioners to register at http://medijean.com to secure a spot and receive date, time and location information for this course along with information on future CME courses.
MediJean is leading the rebirth of medical marijuana through a laser focus on research, quality and patient experience by implementing best practices here and around the world. Doctors and nurse practitioners will understand and safely prescribe it within a clinical framework, patients will have access to clean and affordable medicine, and university research partners will help the company expand the frontiers of medical marijuana in the years ahead.
