Co-founder and President of Patients Out of Time Mary Lynn Mathre, RN, MSN, CARN, will be making several stops across Canada in early 2018 to present educational workshops for nurses and nurse practitioners. The workshops are hosted and organized by Executive Links through their healthcare branch, Nursing Links.
Here’s what Mary Lynn had to say about the first set of these events, which were held in late 2017:
It was such an honor and a pleasure to be invited by Executive Links in Canada to provide a 6 hour course on medical cannabis for the Canadian nurses. We had over 100 in attendance at Vancouver and over 300 nurses in attendance at the Winnipeg, Edmonton and Calgary courses. I believe the fact that the Canadian government accepts cannabis as medicine and the Canadian Nurses Association supports nurses’ education on cannabis are a factor in this great turnout. While Patients Out of Time reaches out to US nurses, our federal prohibition and the continued stigma of “marijuana” remain intimidating factors for US nurses. The overwhelming majority of US citizens supports patient access to cannabis. It is vital that US nurses learn about the endocannabinoid system and the medical use of cannabis so that they can advocate for patients, educate patients and assist patients as necessary to ensure safe access to this natural healing medicine.
