Intermediate Principles of Medical Cannabis: Clinical Case Study - Chronic pain & Hepatic Dysfunction

Fifty-six year old Stephen, an avid gardener, has hit a rough patch. He’s out of action because of the chronic pain in his back, and gout pain in his wrists and ankles. He’s considering medical cannabis as a therapeutic option.

The complication? He has hepatic fibrosis from fatty liver of moderate severity, resulting in reduced hepatic function.

In this case study, explore how his team safely prescribed medical cannabis to Stephen, helping him manage his pain and get back onto his feet – and into his garden.

Upon completion of this course, you’ll be able to:

  • Explain how medical cannabis interacts with the body, including the mechanisms of action and metabolism
  • Apply critical safety considerations / risk mitigation strategies for patients presenting with hepatic dysfunction or impairment
  • Discuss the potential benefits and limitations of medical cannabis as a treatment option for patients with hepatic dysfunction
  • Facilitate clinical discussions with patients around medical cannabis as a therapeutic option in symptom management
  • Educate patients (on their individual case) on how to safely apply their treatment with medical cannabis
