  • Marijuana in Home-Based Care: Street Drug, Medication or Something else?

Marijuana laws are changing rapidly. There are almost as many variations in the law as there are states. What does a home health agency need to consider to provide safe patient care, uphold legally responsible standards, and maintain professional practice? Is it different for hospice agencies? How do you align the needs of the agency, patients, and professional staff? Have you considered the implications of decriminalized vs. medical use for medication safety, documentation, communication, staff safety, or patient education? What about administration? Join us for a discussion of what we know (and don’t know) about managing marijuana  in home-based care, and how to address this complex issue in your agency.
