Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Dallas, Texas - Jan 05, 2017 - Medical cannabis has seen widespread approval from state governments in recent years. As of today, there are currently 42 out of the 50 US states that allow medical marijuana to be used as a form of treatment for patients in need. However, doctors are unaware on how to properly utilize such medications or where to turn to for medical cannabis information. Information about correct dosages, when and how much to recommend, and what qualifying conditions patients are eligible for are all shrouded in mystery for medical professionals.
As a result, many doctors forego what has been extensively proven an effective treatment for certain medical issues. Symptoms alleviated by cannabis include: ALS, post-traumatic stress disorder, and cancer. Lack of education regarding the plant, however, is an obstacle that many medical professionals struggle to overcome.
Healthway Education Systems bridges the gap between State medical marijuana programs, medical education and responsible patient care. Healthway provides extensive knowledge and educational information to medical professionals about medical cannabis and offers insight on how to safely recommend it to patients.
Recognized by the American Medical Association, the educational courses and seminars that Healthway Education Systems offers provide certified medical industry professionals with continuing medical education credits, allowing them to satisfy their annual license renewal requirements.
Healthway Education offers accredited educational courses to those in the medical cannabis space, which include patient care certifications and other unique programs by Healthway. The programs are specific to caregivers and dispensaries, as they provide essential information about medical cannabis to ensure that it is used as safely and efficiently as possible.
The next Healthway Education Systems’ seminar will take place in Dallas, Texas on January 7th. The 4-hour program will be hosted at the 4-star hotel Le Meridien Dallas, The Stoneleigh and will provide participants with information about the medical benefits, side effects, and applications of medical cannabis as a form of treatment for patients.
The event, featuring guest speakers Dr. Jokubas Ziburkus, PhD and Dr. Gregory Smith, MD will offer a comprehensive scientific and clinical overview of the endocannabinoid system and its major components: endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors, other related receptors, their functions and mechanisms of action, physiological and psychological effects, and therapeutic applications. The course will cover the history of the medical cannabis that led to the development of the modern day synthetic cannabinoid and cannabis plant-based pharmaceuticals and medical cannabis formulations. Dr. Smith will contribute a practical perspective and advice on the use of medical cannabis.
Attendees who complete the courses will be awarded four AMA-certified PRA Category 1 credits.
Healthway Education’s courses in Dallas will provide comprehensive training on:
1) The endocannabinoid system
2) Evolution and Use of Cannabis-based Pharmaceuticals and Formulations
