Cannabis-Based Products for Medicinal Use

Cannabis Based Medical Products

NES Pharmacy are hosting this new resource, developed by Health Education England, for use by all Health Care staff in Scotland

This module covers the legislative changes that have enabled cannabis-based products for medicinal use (CBPMs) to be prescribed for patients. It also discusses why unlicensed CBPMs can only be supplied under the prescription or direction of specialist doctors on the GMC Specialist Register (in specific circumstances) where there is an unmet clinical need. Finally, it outlines the guidelines and recommendations available to support healthcare professionals in the UK. This module has been commissioned by NHS England to provide a basic overview for all healthcare professionals. We advise that you refer to your local policies for guidance on the practicalities of prescribing and obtaining CBPMs in your organisation.
