We are looking for a tool that will help improve the patient journey – for example – mapping out the effectiveness of different cannabis strains, managing dosing and delivery, documenting the experience and improving prescriber-patient and the potential future pharmacist-patient interaction.
Medical cannabis helps manage symptoms of cancer, arthritis, and epilepsy and other chronic conditions allowing patients to remain engaged at work, school and play. We are looking for tools that help medical cannabis patients thrive outside the home – whether its by reducing stigma in the workplace or providing reassurance that they are ready for the task at hand.
A mismatch exists between legalization and preparation of medical practitioners to prescribe medical cannabis. In a 2017 study of medical residents and fellows at Washington University, for example, close to 90 per cent felt not at all prepared to prescribe medical cannabis. We are looking for tools that will help doctors, nurses, and pharmacists advise, prescribe, and utilize medical cannabis for the benefit of their patients.
