Medical Marijuana Education For Doctors Is New Focus On

BOSTON, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical marijuana is legal in 18 states and now will be studied worldwide by physicians and other healthcare professionals on the medical education website,  

"Medical marijuana may be controversial, but it is an important area of study in healthcare," says Stephen B. Corn, MD, Editor-in-Chief and co-founder of TheAnswerPage.  Corn is a clinician, professor and an award-winning, prolific inventor. "Doctors and healthcare professionals must understand the medical, legal, social and political issues to best respond to their patients' questions and attend to their needs."

Medical professionals visit daily to learn the latest medical information and earn continuing medical education (CME) credit.  Educational areas on the site include opioid prescribing, pain medicine, palliative care, risk management, anesthesiology, perioperative and hospital medicine, clinical statistics, and medical marijuana.

The Massachusetts Medical Society accredits all educational content on the site.

The website's medical marijuana "lecture series" begins with a primer week about the plant, the five most studied cannabinoids and an explanation of the endocannabinoid system. In later weeks, medical and legal issues are addressed, including state and federal marijuana laws. Information is provided on the FDA drug approval process, including information on pre-clinical trials, phase I, II and III trials, new drug applications and the drug marketing process. New sections cover the treatment of chronic pain syndromes.

"Most medical schools are lagging in teaching the scientific facts about the medicinal use of cannabis," said Sunil K. Aggarwal, MD, PhD, cannabis expert and resident physician at N.Y.U. Medical Center. "It's great that doctors can now get excellent and rapid CME training on medical marijuana at The Answer Page."

TheAnswerPage uses the Socratic question-and-answer teaching method that characterizes much of the clinical educational experience. The content, written by academic clinicians respected in their fields, is peer-reviewed and referenced from current texts and recent literature.
