cannabis and early psychosis
This order set may be used to help guide the evaluation and treatment of patients with early psychosis associated with cannabis use in both the inpatient and outpatient care setting.
The primary objective of this resource is to provide an educational folder with a removable section for patients to take away. The material covers the topics of cannabis legalization, the various forms it can be used, the effects of cannabis on the brain and how it relates to psychosis.
This initiative has been sponsored by the Health Canada Substance Use and Addictions Program.
