S1094 Marijuana as Medicine

Saturday, November 3
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: W303, Orange County Convention Center

Topic(s): Hospice and Palliative Medicine

Faculty will present a framework for understanding the popularity of marijuana as medicine and give participants a sense of the “alphabet soup” of cannabis products. While accepting and acknowledging the risks, we also will reflect with compassion on the desperate hope many families have when turning to cannabis products to help their children. Participants will learn about rare circumstances in which cannabis may be beneficial and an approach to discussing the topic with the majority for whom it is not.
