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
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. To learn more about MediJean
