The new 2-hour Florida Physician Medical Marijuana Course has been launched by the state. This course replaces the former 8-hour course but solely focuses on the laws and rules that govern physicians who intend to certify patient eligibility for medical marijuana in Florida. To provide needed medical education Florida Cannabis Coalition has partnered with TheAnswerPage. Participants will receive a 12-month subscription to TheAnswerPage’s comprehensive CME accredited medical cannabis library (see modules to the right).
"Whether or not doctors or other healthcare providers have any intention of recommending medical cannabis for patient care, they all need to be well educated in this clinical area because their patients will be seeking their expert advice and guidance for this important medication."
Further, some patients may already be utilizing medical cannabis and doctors and other healthcare providers will need to be aware of the physiological effects of cannabis as well as potential drug interactions. As such, expertise in medical cannabis will be paramount for most doctors, pharmacists, nurses, and other healthcare providers if they wish to continue to be that respected guide for their patients’ healthcare.” -Stephen B. Corn, MD The Answer Page
