Latrobe Health Assembly

Medicinal Cannabis Forum

07.04.2019

Project Objectives

The afternoon forums were tailored to meet the needs of the Latrobe Valley Community and aimed to debunk the myths around medicinal cannabis.  They provided learnings on all they need to know about the benefits of medicinal cannabis and how eligible patients can access medications in Australia.

The evening forum was dedicated to educating health professionals on the research and information in order to provide medical professionals with the tools and knowledge they need to confidently navigate this topic with their patients.

Cann10 is the first education provider in the medicinal cannabis industry in Australia. They have partnered with both Deakin University and Western Sydney University delivering educational events with evidence-based knowledge to inform health professionals and community members on the use of medicinal cannabis to treat medical conditions.

The forum was attended by over 80 community representatives and demonstrated the communities interest and acceptance in this emerging medication stream.
