Medical Cannabis for the Cancer Patient

Medical Cannabis for the Cancer Patient

There's a lot of hype about the benefits of medical cannabis, but how do you, as a healthcare provider, sort fact from fiction and answer questions from your patients? A panel of experts discuss the use of medical cannabis by the cancer patient in this live-to-tape symposium that was presented to a patient audience at Roswell Park. The talk covers the symptoms relieved by medical cannabis, interactions with drugs such as chemotherapies, side effects, ways it can be administered and more.

Expert presenters include: Dr. Amy Case, Roswell Park's Chair of Supportive Care, Dr. Eric Hansen, also from the Department of Supportive and Palliative Care at Roswell, Mary Reid, MSPH, PhD, Roswell Park's Director of Cancer Screening and Survivorship who moderated the panel, and Jeffrey Lombardo, PharmD, from the Translational Pharmacology Research Core at the University at Buffalo.
