We’re supporting Medical Cannabis Awareness Week 2020October 14, 2020 | IN NEWS | BY Kate Thorpe
During Medical Cannabis Awareness Week 2020, 1 – 8 November, we are supporting PLEA’s call for patients, doctors, colleagues from across the sector, friends and supporters to fight for fair access to medical cannabis, using the hashtag #MCAW2020.
During Medical Cannabis Awareness Week, PLEA is:
- Calling for fair access to medical cannabis treatment on the NHS
- Raising awareness of its life-changing impact on patients
- Addressing the stigma facing patients who use this treatment
- Promoting medical cannabis education for all
It’s time to end the inequality and ensure everyone who needs it has the opportunity to benefit from medical cannabis treatment. Medical Cannabis Awareness Week will take place during the first week of November every year. Visit www.medicalcannabisawarenessweek.org.uk for ideas about how you can get involved.
Society Chair Prof Mike Barnes and Dr Elie Okirie are hosting a special webinar for clinicians interested in supporting patients with medical cannabis treatments.
