E58 - Greenly Heath with Dr. Blake Pearson

Many family docs spend part of their time looking after patients in long term care homes.  Two of the most common conditions in long term care are chronic pain and dementia.  We don't have great options in the standard pharmaceutical tool box to treat either of these conditions.  What if I told you a family doc in Sarnia, Ontario is having so much success treating both chronic pain and dementia symptoms in long term care that his colleagues are referring patients to him?  Dr. Blake Pearson is treating chronic pain, dementia symptoms, autism symptoms and others with cannabis.  His expertise is in such demand that he teaches other doctors how to use cannabis successfully in their practice.  Come have a listen.

Description

If there's something strange in your neighbourhood, who you gonna call? If you’re living in a rural community, are over 65 and wonder if cannabis might be a good option for your arthritic knee, but your doctor says she doesn't know anything about it, instead of Ghostbusters, why not call HelloMD? Better yet, listen to Trevor and Kirk talk to Larry Lisser of HelloMD about medical cannabis in general and HelloMD's Senior Care Program in particular. So who you gonna call?
