We are taking the medical-cannabis movement to a level that can’t be denied: unbiased and science-based medical education
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2014
United Patients Group, a trusted online resource known for its commitment to the highest level of patient care, is now offering online courses on a number of medical-cannabis-related topics. These courses are also certified for continuing education units (CEUs) for those needing CEU hours. The courses are offered in partnership with The Medical Cannabis Institute (TMCI), powered by Scitent, a leader in online medical education. Topics include cancer / oncology, cardiovascular health, the endocannabinoid system, neurologic disorders, pain and palliative care, and psychiatry / mental health.
“We are thrilled to offer these deeply informative courses on medical cannabis,” exclaims John Malanca, founder of United Patients Group. “We are taking the medical-cannabis movement to a level that can’t be denied: unbiased and science-based medical education.”
The list of course titles includes:
- Cannabinoids and Neuropathic Pain
- Cannabinoids: Tackling the Cardiovascular Problems
- Cannabis in the Management of Neuromuscular Disorders
- Cannabis Therapeutics in Hospice and Palliative Care
- Clinical Applications of Cannabis in Cancer Patients
- Endocannabinoids in the Circulation and Psychopathology
- Is Your Patient Impaired by Cannabis?
- New Target Receptors for Cannabinoids: GPR55 and GPR18
- Potential Therapeutic Benefits of Cannabidiol for Cancer Patients
- The Role of the Clinician: Helping Patients Optimize Their Therapeutic Relationship with Cannabis
United Patients Group urges medical professionals to sign up for these courses to educate themselves on the newest and most viable cannabis treatments and how to properly administer them.
“Take this opportunity to learn about cannabinoid medicine—you could save patients’ lives with your new knowledge,” says Malanca.
Policymakers and their staff members will also benefit tremendously from the information contained in the courses, and can use it to shape future cannabis policy. Many of the lawmakers in local, state, and federal elected office—and lawmakers in other countries—know very little about medical cannabis, relying instead on old stereotypes about marijuana users when creating policy.
This has had devastating consequences for people treating ailments with medical cannabis in places where it’s still illegal—forcing them to turn to the dangerous black market, resulting in senseless arrests, and even ripping families apart and forcing children into foster care.
“If you are a legislator or work for a legislator, I urge you to get the facts about cannabis before deciding how to regulate it,” states Malanca. “These courses will give you an in-depth understanding of how medical cannabis works, which groups of people benefit from it, and why current laws need to be changed.”
