Virtual roundtable – watch again
On 13 December, international paediatric neurologists and medical cannabis experts came together for a panel discussion about the UK’s prescribing crisis for children with intractable epilepsy.
Hosted by the Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society, the roundtable discussion will reviewed the guidance, shed light on the concerns, and considered a way ahead for these children. The discussion provides doctors, clinicians, the wider paediatric medical community and parents of children with this condition accurate information about cannabis-based treatment.
Moderated by Dr Dani Gordon, Vice-Chair of the Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society, panellists – including Canadian Paediatric Neurologists Dr Evan Lewis and Dr JP Appendino, Consultant Paediatrician Dr Jane Hailey and Paediatric Cannabis Consultant Dr Bonni Goldstein – shared experiences, evidence and case studies for medical cannabis for intractable epilepsy and the difference this is making for children globally.
