Researchers: Educate Hospice Staff on Medical Cannabis

|

Hospice clinicians, particularly those who perform home visits, need more education about how to address medical cannabis, authors of a recent Journal of Palliative Medicine study told Hospice News. With a rising number of states legalizing medical cannabis, hospice clinicians are increasingly likely to encounter the substance in patient homes.

A team of pharmacist and nurse researchers from the University of Maryland, Enclara Pharmacia and Turn-Key Health surveyed 310 hospice clinicians and administrators in 40 states regarding their views on medical cannabis in hospice care, finding that more than 91% of respondents supported its use. About 60% of those respondents were nurses.
