Event details

In the past several years, cannabidiol (CBD) products have become more widely accepted for managing the side effects of breast cancer treatments. Even though CBD has become more popular, it is still new to many healthcare providers and their patients.

This webinar helps strengthen healthcare providers’ knowledge about CBD and how it can be used to manage patients’ treatment side effects.

Our speakers, Alex Capano DNP, CRNP, FNP-BC, from Ecofibre Limited and Brooke Worster, MD, FACP, from Thomas Jefferson University, cover topics including: CBD products and how they work; how CBD can be used to treat side effects of breast cancer treatment, including current research and anticipated future trends; and potential interactions between CBD and treatment. They also cover how to effectively respond to patients’ questions and guide them on CBD use.

We were unable to offer CEs for this program. However, certificates of participation were provided upon request through the evaluation process.
