The cannabis patient Consultation – information Evening (Part 1)
“Where can I find reliable information about” Medical cannabis “? My previous medications have hardly any effect and sometimes strong side effects. What can I do as a patient? ”
Cannabis as a medicine is gaining more and more acceptance in our society. Nevertheless, obtaining this prescriptive medicine is still associated with some bureaucratic and reputational hurdles. Stigma and social prejudice make doctors shy away and potential patients remain helpless. The German Patient Roundtable brings together the various stakeholders, provides active assistance and promotes dialogue between patients, doctors, research and industry.
The aim of the German Patient Roundtable is to bring together, network and inform patient interests in order to optimally care for them. Through active action, the above-mentioned hurdles should be eliminated and more patients should be informed about the possibility of treatment with cannabinoids.
The event on October 19th highlights cannabis as a medicine and provides helpful information, especially for (potential) patients. The symposium looks at four perspectives:
1. Advocacy: People who are committed to patients.
2. Science: People who are researching and actively working on cannabinoids.
3. Medicine: people who actively treat with cannabinoids in medical practice.
4. Patients: People who want to be treated or are treated with “Medical Cannabis”.
This event is the first in a presumably four-part series of events. The second appointment is planned for January 18th 2019.
*: The event is an information evening. There is no medical consultation (by doctors)
