The unique and comprehensive course is held in the nursing schools at Tel Hashomer and Kaplan Hospital and at Ben Gurion University. The importance of the patient being accompanied by a cannabis nurse during treatment is immense.
The cannabis nurses have extensive knowledge in the various treatment methods, adjusting the right cannabis products and dosages.
If a patient is taking additional medications, it is even more important to be accompanied and monitored by a nurse. The nurses are an integral part of the adjustment of treatment, the beginning of treatment and its continuation.
