Research Opportunities

Study Invitation: Medical Cannabis Research Survey

Cannabis (marijuana) is legal in many states for medical use and interest in its use in hospice is growing.  Hospice clinicians and patients are interested in understanding its indications for symptom management and how to use it.  There are also questions as well as concerns regarding its use.

Enclara Pharmacia, in collaboration with the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, is conducting a survey of hospice clinicians and administrators on medical cannabis and its use in hospice.

The survey only takes a few minutes to complete, and all results are reported in aggregate (no identifying information allows tracking a specific respondent).  Results from the survey will be published in an upcoming special issue on medical cannabis in the Journal of Palliative Medicine.  Participants are eligible to take a free online course on medial cannabis for hospice and palliative care, if interested, developed by Drs. Lynn McPherson and Kelly Mendoza, University of Maryland School of Pharmacy.

Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts about medical cannabis in hospice and respond by September 15.
