Canadian Clinical Practice Guidelines on the Use of Cannabis in the Management of Chronic Pain and Associated Symptoms
The Canadian AIDS Society established a Task Force to develop Canadian Clinical Practice Guidelines on the Use of Cannabis in the Management of Chronic Pain and Associated Symptoms. The Task Force is co-chaired by Patrick Wright of the Canadian AIDS Society and Ms. Shari Margolese, Community Research Consultant. It is comprised of a multidisciplinary team, including people living with chronic pain, physicians, a nurse, expert researchers, and representatives from other national non-governmental organizations.
The Task Force held its inaugural meeting in Toronto on November 1st, 2017 to develop the protocol for the development of the guidelines. The protocol for the guidelines was published in the BMJ Open and can be accessed here. Our guidelines are in their final stages of development and will soon be published as well.
Stay tuned for more information.
