New partnership strengthens medicinal cannabis education 

NICM Health Research Institute (NICM), The National Institute of Integrative Medicine (NIIM), and the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) are three of Australia’s eminent institutions which share a vision to educate practitioners and the public about integrative and complementary medicine, including nutritional and environmental medicine.

In a new partnership and education initiative, Medicinal Cannabis Education (MCE)(opens in a new window), the three organisations will provide practitioner training and resources, and public information events on medicinal cannabis. The collaboration comes in response to growing consumer demand for medicinal cannabis, changing political landscape and regulations around access and the pressing need for doctors and allied health practitioners to be informed about medicinal cannabis.

The first practitioner event and a public event will be held in Melbourne in May and feature international and Australian experts on medicinal cannabis. Read more(opens in a new window) about the event.
