1. Introduction to medical cannabis clinics

Introduction to medical cannabis clinics

Medical cannabis in Canada has evolved rapidly in the last few years, leading to expansive growth. 

However, after 20 years, medical cannabis prescription remains concentrated at medical cannabis clinics across Canada, where prescribing physicians are assisted by dedicated support staff. To date, between 80-90% of all medical cannabis authorizations in Canada are written at dedicated clinics. 

Medical cannabis clinics can serve as a pillar of the local medical community, providing essential patient care, healthcare professional training, and education, and even leading research to contribute to the scientific knowledge of cannabinoid-based medicines. 

To become a centre of excellence in medical cannabis, it takes dedication and a supportive community of practice. We offer a clinic development program to support new clinics and clinical practices to achieve excellence in patient care efficiently and effectively.

3. Development of clinical model

Development of clinical model

We established our clinical model over years of clinical practice and research since 2014; it’s built specifically for clinical excellence, data collection and is customized to our local regulatory requirements and medical community needs. Our model is an excellent start for any new clinic or clinic integrating medical cannabis services.  

We’ve since adapted the model to various jurisdictions, and from in-person clinic visits to telemedicine to meet the evolving healthcare community. 

We’ll guide you through the development of your own model, including your personnel needs to provide you with your desired clinical practice outcomes. We’ll work within your provincial, state, and national regulations to ensure your model is compliant and built for success. 

 

Medical cannabis clinical model development can include: 

  • Adaptation of the Santé Cannabis medical cannabis model 
  • Consultation and verification by clinical team leaders 
  • Complete review of required internal processes and external relations to the medical community 
  • Design of a continuous improvement plan to meet the clinic objectives and community needs
