Americans for Safe Access Launches Cannabis Care Certification Program

UnknownAmericans for Safe Access (ASA), a national nonprofit dedicated to ensuring safe and legal access to medical cannabis for therapeutic use and research, and TheAnswerPage.com, a medical education website recognized as a world leader in providing quality continuing medical educational content focused on medical cannabis, have joined forces to launch the Cannabis Care Certification program. 

Cannabis Care Certification is an online educational program that offers patients and healthcare professionals unbiased quality information in a structured learning environment and provides industry partners with tools and live events to extend their educational reach. 

The Cannabis Care Certification Patient & Caregiver Education Program provides quality education for individuals who are starting or considering cannabis therapeutics as a part of their healthcare regime and offers guidance for family members, caregivers, and anyone interested in medical cannabis education. The program features 2-hours of video education addressing dosage, titration, labeling of cannabis therapeutics, transporting medical cannabis, medical cannabis in your life, and much more. Those who sign up, will receive a free legal overview and a list of requirements for their state Medical Cannabis Program, those who complete the program will receive a Cannabis Care Patient and Caregiver Certification.

The Cannabis Care Certification Medical Professionals Education Program features an online comprehensive and in-depth introduction to the endocannabinoid system and the therapeutic use of cannabis in multiple diseases. The content, and its presentations, are designed to be of educational value and interest to those new to medical cannabis, as well as for those with years of experience in this area of clinical practice.

Successful completion of the Medical Professionals Education Program culminates in the healthcare professional being awarded a “Cannabis Care Certification,” CME credits, patient education subscription, and an option to be listed on the referral section of the website. “Cannabis Care Certification”, awarded only to those who fulfill the certifying requirements and successfully complete the academic courses, distinguishes that clinician as one dedicated to developing expertise in cannabis care.

The program also features online educational tools that reference state-specific medical cannabis laws, rules and regulations and can be customized for companies or organizations looking to enhance patient and medical professional education in their specific area. In person courses and lectures are also offered, and can be tailored to address the needs of any institution, company, or organization.
