David Balfour will discuss “Medical Staff Policies Related to Use of Marijuana and New Therapeutic Agents,” at the California Public Protection & Physician Health, Inc., on October 21 by Zoom.
This 90-minute session will focus on what medical staff/medical group policy makers need to know about use of marijuana now that it is no longer an “illegal drug”.
- List “illegal” drugs that are now being used therapeutically
- Quote sections of medical staff policies that address use of such drugs
- Describe factors that influence the interpretation of a drug test that shows use of marijuana
- Describe how test results can form the basis for recommendations for specific actions of the medical staff
