Empower Your Practice with Accredited Medical Cannabis Training from ScriptAssist

We are pleased to share the details of a new training opportunity brought to you by ScriptAssist, a dedicated supporter of the Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society (MCCS).

ScriptAssist and MCCS share a common goal of broadening access to medical cannabis treatments through education and straightforward prescribing. ScriptAssist, in collaboration with MCCS, is presenting a series of invaluable training sessions for specialist consultants keen to enhance their knowledge and skills in cannabis medicine.

Training Sessions: What to Expect

The training days are structured into three comprehensive sessions, each lasting three hours. They are designed to offer a deep dive into specific healthcare disciplines of psychiatry, neurology and pain.

Each session begins with an in-depth overview of cannabis as a treatment, including an exploration of its varied uses, potential contraindications, side effects, and the different delivery routes available, presented by MCCS Chair, Dr. Leon Barron.

Following that, Dr. Mark Smith, ScriptAssist’s Clinical Advisor, will present indication-specific case studies alongside guest presenters. Each case study offers real-world insights into the use of medical cannabis in treatment, providing invaluable context and deepening understanding.

To conclude the session, attendees will gain practical insights on how to apply all the knowledge gained in a real-life, private practice setting. Arjun Rajyagor, Founder and CTO of ScriptAssist, using the ScriptAssist platform as a tool, will demonstrate the journey from learning to application, showcasing the seamless integration of the platform in facilitating medical cannabis prescribing.
