Aim: The aim of MedCan 2020 is to help New Zealand stakeholders better understand the opportunities to improve health outcomes, and to ensure our industry can thrive responsibly from the outset. We will bring international thought leaders to New Zealand, to share knowledge and educate our stakeholders; the industry, healthcare professionals, academics, researchers and patients. This landmark event will empower all audiences who seek to unlock the social, economic, and clinical potential of medicinal cannabis.
Audience: Healthcare professionals will receive accredited education covering everything from prescribing and dispensing medicinal cannabis, to the current body of evidence and safety considerations.
Patients will discover how cannabis is being used to treat many different conditions, and how products are accessed in New Zealand.
Industry stakeholders will learn about the business of cannabis, world markets, new technologies, and international research.
Outcome: We want to ensure that New Zealanders are equipped to maximise the opportunity that medicinal cannabis brings. It is attracting major investment in New Zealand and will create new skills, so knowledge and collaboration are critical. Cannabis-based medicines have extraordinary potential to improve quality of life and fuel economic growth.
MedCan 2020 will be a truly international event, signalling the launch of New Zealand’s regulated medical cannabis market.
