Cannabis Use and Cannabis Addiction in Rural Populations: Phenomenology, Intervention, & Policy
Please join us a UVM CORA Community Rounds Workshop series session with Alan Budney, PhD, Professor at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. This presentation will focus on enhancing rural providers’ knowledge related to (a) the changing landscape of cannabis products and availability, (b) the potential to develop problems from cannabis use, (c) treatment models for helping those with cannabis problems in rural communities, and (d) the importance of communication for prevention, intervention, and public health in rural settings.

Learning objectives:
1) Discuss the impact of the changing landscape of cannabis products and regulations on cannabis use and misuse, with a focus on primarily rural states.
2) Discuss the potential positive and negative impact of therapeutic (medical) cannabis use and policies.
3) Describe and discuss the nature of cannabis addiction, with emphasis on rural patients.
4) Discuss rural-specific treatment models for cannabis use disorder and common clinical issues related to beliefs about the effects of cannabis on physical and mental health.

The Community Rounds Workshop Series is provided live monthly by the University of Vermont Center on Rural Addiction (UVM CORA). The goal is to provide opportunities for health professionals to learn, ask questions, and discuss topics related to science-based best practices for substance use disorder. Participants can expect 45 minutes of presentation followed by 15 minutes for questions and conversation. A recording of the session and slides will be shared following. Registered participants will also be added to UVM CORA’s listserv and receive notifications for future events. If you do not wish to be added, please contact us at CORA@uvm.edu.​
