PRESCRIBER TRAINING PROGRAM AGREEMENT
The Santé Cannabis Prescriber Training Program aims to provide medical cannabis education and support services for health care providers and trainees. It includes two key features described below:
- Online Training Program, via a hosted web portal, providing access to the best available evidence on the therapeutic use of medical cannabis and access to resources and clinical tools to create prescriptions, perform clinical assessments, create treatment plans and referrals;
- Support Services, a host of support offerings to support continued medical education, including a phone support line to Santé Cannabis nursing team, access to shared-care education services for your patients, webinars, preceptorships and onsite continuing training opportunities.
The Program also provides opportunities to customize your interactions by signing up for email notifications and e-newsletters, as well as event invitations and opportunities to learn about and get engaged in a variety of knowledge translation activities such as webinars or research studies.
USE OF PORTAL AND SUPPORT SERVICES
The information provided in the Program is for information purposes only and aims to support physicians with background knowledge required to make treatment decisions for their patients. It is not professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment or care nor is it intended to be a substitute for these services. Medical cannabis remains an unapproved medical treatment in Canada, and reference to off-label use of cannabinoid medications is indicated throughout program content. The online community and support services are available for reference but are not to be used for medical emergencies.
NO PHYSICIAN-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP
The presentation of general information within the Program does not establish a physician-patient relationship between you and Santé Cannabis (or any of its physicians) and is not intended as a solicitation of individuals to become patients or clients of Santé Cannabis (or any of its physicians).
NO DUTY OF CARE
The presentation of Content on the Portal, including discussions between physicians using the Portal, does not establish a duty of care between you (or your patients) and Santé Cannabis (or other physicians using the Portal) and is not intended as a solicitation.
This program is supported by an unrestricted education grant from Spectrum Therapeutics. Unless specifically stated, Santé Cannabis does not recommend or endorse any specific brand of products, services, procedures or other information that appears or that may be advertised on the Portal.
By participating in the Program, you are agreeing to the sharing of information between Santé Cannabis and Spectrum Therapeutics regarding physician participant activity and utilization of support services within the program. All registration information and program activity are used for internal purposes only. Registration information will not be shared with third parties. Santé Cannabis may contact you in the future with surveys to determine the impact of your participation in this Program on your practice. No confidential, or otherwise identifiable patient information will be shared as part of this Program without the express consent of the respective patient.
