Over the past decade, Dr Bosman's work in Australia included extensive work in the Emergency and Cardiac fields.

He developed a special interest in Medicinal Cannabis following personal losses during which he identifies an opportunity to provide more support and care to palliative care patients.

Overview

Medical cannabis is increasingly considered a potentially effective therapy in the treatment of some disease-related symptoms. While synthesised cannabinoids have been legally available for many years in some countries, use of the whole cannabis flower and cannabis extracts is only recently gaining greater attention, largely due to an increasing knowledge that such use may be a valuable adjunct or alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals.

This event is organised by Nepean GP Network.

Learning outcomes:

  • Examine the clinical applications of medicinal cannabis in General Practice
  • Define the differences between adverse and therapeutic effects of medical cannabis
  • Describe how to access Medicinal Cannabis via the TGA SAS process
