Furthering Medical Cannabis Education at Upcoming Webinars

Prof Mike Barnes delivering training

Maple Tree Consultants is pleased to announce two upcoming webinars aimed at enhancing knowledge and understanding of medical cannabis use in neurological conditions.

Maple Tree is committed to delivering specialist education and training. Through these two webinars, we aim to equip organisations and individuals outside of the sector with the necessary tools to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of medicinal cannabis prescribing.

Exploring the growing body of evidence supporting the use of medical cannabis for symptoms related to brain injuries and other neurological conditions, the webinars provide a fascinating insight into medical cannabis effectiveness and symptom improvement in this sub-sector of healthcare.

Webinar 1: Medical Cannabis for Legal Teams and Medico-Legal Experts

19 September 2023, 4pm - 5pm

Audience: Legal teams, clinicians and medico-legal professionals

This webinar by NRC Medical Experts examines the role of medical cannabis in neurological conditions and the associated medico-legal issues it could present. The session's focal point will be its implications for legal cases involving brain, spinal, and neurological injuries, offering invaluable insights for legal and medical professionals alike.

From an introduction to the cannabis plant and an exploration of the endocannabinoid system and how cannabinoids interact with the body, the session will present an in-depth discussion on the legal considerations when dealing with legal claims involving medical cannabis treatment, as well as a discussion on the potential benefits patients could experience in terms of symptom management.

Though in many cases an unlicensed treatment, medical cannabis is fast becoming a first-line or usual medical treatment for many patients, and so this is an essential webinar for professionals aiming to navigate the complex intersections of neuroscience, medicine, and law.

Post-webinar, attendees will have access to the presentation, webinar recordings, and an attendance certificate to add to their professional CPD logs.

Webinar 2: Exploring Cannabis Further

8 November 2023, 10 am - 12 pm

Audience: Clinicians and healthcare professionals across working in brain and spinal injury and neurorehabilitation

This webinar from ABI Solutions promises a thorough investigation of cannabis use for medical purposes in relation to neurological indications. Led by our Director, Professor Mike Barnes, a neurologist and expert in the field of medical cannabis, the webinar will explore the long history of cannabis medicine for symptom management and quality of life.

This webinar, which Professor Mike Barnes is hosting, will look at the history of medical cannabis in the UK as well as how the approved cannabis-based drugs Sativex and Epidiolex work to treat conditions like multiple sclerosis and severe forms of epilepsy. It will go on to discuss the use of whole-plant medical cannabis for neurological conditions, including migraine, and the potential of cannabinoids as neuroprotective agents in Traumatic Brain Injury. This informative session will also touch on the use of medical cannabis for neuropathic pain and chronic pain patients, a symptom experienced across numerous neurological disorders.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to deepen your understanding of medical cannabis's potential in neurology and neurorehabilitation.

An online resource package, including the recorded session and PDF copies of all slides, will be made available for those who register. CPD UK has accredited this webinar.
