Cannabis as Medicine
In 2018 legislation changed to allow specialist doctors to prescribe cannabis-based medicinal products (CBMPs).
Recent YouGov polls indicate that over 1.4 million patients in the UK are currently consuming cannabis to help manage their diagnosed medical conditions. A further 6.7 million adult patients would like to discuss cannabis-based treatment options with their healthcare teams.
CPASS work to help both patients and healthcare professionals to access support and education surrounding these treatment options.
2021 The Nurse
The World Health Organisation designated 2020 The Year of the Nurse and Midwife. And then, COVID struck.
The role of frontline healthcare will inevitably be more vital than ever throughout 2021 and into the future. CPASS launched The Nurse’s Arm in founding partnership with former Health Minister and MP, Professor Ann Keen RN, at the Royal College of Nursing in London. With a vision to collaborate, advocate, research and educate, helping frontline healthcare professionals to make an impact on how cannabis-based medicinal products (CBMPs) may feature in the future of healthcare in Britain.
Our nurse, midwife and educator led principle focus is on improving health, clinical outcomes and patient experience, through building nursing and midwifery leadership capacity to make significant improvements to the cannabinoid patient care environment.
A live webinar series for healthcare providers. Real life, multi-disciplinary-team case studies and theory sessions. Exploring how cannabis may be effective in the patient's care pathway.
