What Nurses Need to know about Medical Cannabis!

Evidence now shows that the properties of cannabis can be used to treat a variety of illnesses. Now that cannabis is legal in over 24 States, including New Jersey and Pennsylvania, it is more important than ever for healthcare professionals to understand how the properties of this plant work, and how it can be used safely and effectively.  This conference will discuss the properties (and misunderstandings) of the cannabis plant, the different ways it can be used as a medicine, and the scientific evidence, as well as the many legal hurdles patients and healthcare providers still face when trying to obtain this medicine.
