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