Cannabis World Congress New York & TheAnswerPage Partner to Provide Medical Professionals with Medical Cannabis Education &
Cannabis Certification Courses
Paramus, NJ — An opportunity for doctors and all healthcare professionals to learn about medical marijuana and the “New York State Practitioner Education-Medical Use of Marijuana Course” that is required in order to certify patients, is being provided by the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo) in collaboration with TheAnswerPage.com. The CWCBExpo NY, the leading trade show and conference for the medical marijuana and legalized cannabis industry, will host “TheAnswerPage’s Comprehensive Cannabis Presentation on the Endocannabinoid System and Medical Marijuana,” on June 16th (11:50am-1:30pm) and June 17th (11:00am-12:30pm) at the Javits Convention Center in New York.
Healthcare professionals who subscribe for TheAnswerPage’s on-line medical cannabis courses, “New York State Practitioner Education-Medical Use of Marijuana Course” or the “Comprehensive Cannabis Curriculum” at www.TheAnswerPage.com will be provided complimentary access to the CWCBExpo NY exhibits plus an opportunity to get a discount on CWCBExpo Full Conference Registration.
The special cannabis session at CWCBExpo NY – “TheAnswerPage’s Comprehensive Cannabis Presentation on the Endocannabinoid System and Medical Marijuana” – will be co-hosted by Stephen B. Corn, MD, a multi-award winning physician, inventor and faculty member of Harvard Medical School and founder of TheAnswerPage, and Meredith Fisher-Corn, MD, a Harvard-trained physician specializing in anesthesiology, perioperative and pain medicine and Editor-in-Chief of TheAnswerPage.com. The Corns were named, “Medical Professional of the Year” by the ASA for their seminal work in medical cannabis education.
The comprehensive class will include an introduction to the Endocannabinoid System and provide a thorough understanding of the “New York State Practitioner Education – Medical Use of Marijuana Course,” that is approved by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). In New York, physicians need to complete this course in order to register with the NYSDOH to certify patients for medical marijuana. Pharmacists working in dispensaries must take the course before they can counsel patients and caregivers on the use, administration, and risks associated with approved medical marijuana products.
TheAnswerPage’s educational program at CWCBExpo NY will also feature contributions from leading cannabis experts from around the world. A session entitled, “Medical Cannabis Legal Primer: Guidance and Assurance for the Healthcare Professional” led by topic experts Elizabeth Kase, Esq., and Yulian Shtern, Esq., will include Information on federal medical marijuana laws in relation to state laws, including a focus on what doctors and other healthcare providers need to know to best facilitate their participation in the New York Medical Marijuana Program. A “Comprehensive Cannabis Curriculum” will also be available for clinicians practicing outside of New York State.
Stephen B. Corn, MD notes, “Whether or not doctors have any intention of recommending medical marijuana for patient care, they all need to be well educated in this area because their patients will be seeking their expert advice and guidance for this medication. Further, some patients may already be utilizing medical marijuana and doctors and other healthcare providers will need to be aware of the physiological effects of marijuana, as well as potential drug interactions. As such, expertise in medical marijuana will be paramount for most doctors, pharmacists, and nurses, if they wish to continue to be that respected guide for their patients’ healthcare.”
