Due to state legalization and increased access to cannabis, there is increasing use of cannabis in Vermont and nationwide. Cannabis is used medically for certain qualifying conditions in Vermont in addition to recreationally. In a recent study they found 45% of adult primary care patients in Vermont had used cannabis in the last year and only 18% of patients reported their clinician as being a good source of information regarding cannabis. Educating clinicians about cannabis is critical for quality comprehensive patient care. The objective of this project was the development of a short survey to deploy to primary care clinicians throughout the state to get a baseline assessment of their medical understanding of cannabis, in order to create specific learning opportunities to expand their knowledge of medicinal cannabis.
