Please note that this course is included in the PD Pharmacy Technicians Bundle. For only $50 more, you can have access to this and four other professional development courses!
This course will enable Pharmacy Technicians to understand current national and provincial regulations regarding Cannabis, with a focus on Ontario regulations. Pharmacy Technicians will also achieve an understanding of possible therapeutic uses and risks associated with the use of Cannabis. We hope that a greater understanding of cannabis will lead to decreased stigma associated with its use and allow Pharmacy Technicians to communicate in a professional way when addressing questions and concerns regarding cannabis use.
