Learn about new corporate polices for medical purposes and non-medical purposes cannabis.

What’s happening? 

The Student Practice team would like to inform all students and faculty instructors about two new corporate policies that may impact their practice:

 

Cannabis – medical purposes

  • Cannabis – medical purposes

  • Highlights

    This policy sets out the expectations for Fraser Health staff and physicians in responding to requests to use medical cannabis. The policy is applicable to all Fraser Health services in owned and operated, contracted and affiliated settings

  • Impacted programs, professions, networks

    Acute Care; Community; Residential Care and Assisted Living Services

Cannabis – non-medical purposes

  • Cannabis – non-medical purposes

  • Highlights

    This policy sets out the expectations for Fraser Health staff and physicians in responding to requests to use cannabis for non-medical purposes in a care setting. The policy is applicable to all Fraser Health services in owned and operated, contracted and affiliated settings.

  • Impacted programs, professions, networks

    Acute Care; Community; Residential Care and Assisted Living Services

Why is this important? 

Fraser Health considers the patient experience in all parts of the health system. This includes the development and revision of policies, Clinical Decision Support Tools, forms, and Pre-Printed Orders. Our goal is to provide quality care that is sensitive and responsive to patient needs, preferences, and beliefs.

How will this impact students and faculty instructors? 

Students and faculty instructors are expected to apply any necessary changes in their practice to ensure that patients, clients, and residents continue to receive safe and quality care. Students and faculty instructors can only access these policies via FH Pulse when they are on a Fraser Health computer on a Fraser Health site.
