Press Release TRC Healthcare (TRC) has launched a new training program to help pharmacists deliver better healthcare for patients who use cannabis products. The online program, known as RxAdvanced: Guide to Cannabis, gives pharmacists a foundational knowledge of cannabis that strengthens their role as stewards of public health.   “As more states legalize cannabis products, either for medical use, recreational use, or both, we have seen a need within the healthcare industry for credible information that can help clinicians guide patients toward safe and effective cannabis use,” says Wes Crews, Chief Executive of TRC Healthcare.   Patients expect their pharmacists to know how cannabis interacts with their medications and conditions. This is a new area that many pharmacists don’t feel they are adequately trained to support those expectations. As a trusted leader in evidence-based medication advisory resources for pharmacists and other clinicians, TRC Healthcare is filling that knowledge gap by partnering with the University of Colorado Denver Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.   “The RxAdvanced: Guide to Cannabis program is an online training program developed specifically for pharmacists by our expert faculty members. The program provides pharmacists with a great resource,” says Dr Jodie Malhotra, PharmD, Director of Practitioner and International Development. “By the time they finish the program, pharmacists will be prepared to offer sound advice on role that medical cannabis may – or may not – have in patient care.”   RxAdvanced: Guide to Cannabis focuses on practical tips for consulting with patients and healthcare providers about cannabis. Pharmacists gain insights about the human endocannabinoid system as well as the medical history of cannabis and its chemical constituents. The curriculum also covers state and federal regulations that pertain to cannabis.
