Coffee Talk 8 with Eloise Theisen, RN, AGPCNP-BC

On this episode, we talk with CannMed 2020 presenter Eloise Theisen of Radicle Health. Eloise is a board-certified Adult Geriatric Nurse Practitioner with over 20 years experience in nursing. She started her own cannabis practice about 6 years ago and she has treated over 6000 patients using cannabis. There are very few healthcare providers nationally with the same level of expertise and experience. Eloise is the President of the American Cannabis Nurses Association and will serve as President through 2022.

Eloise made her first CannMed appearance at our 2019 event in a presentation sharing her experience using Cannabis to treat geriatric patients. We talked about some of the unique challenges that come with working with seniors including the stigma older patients have towards cannabis, how the endocannabinoid system changes as we age, and navigating drug interactions.

We are excited to have Eloise as a presenter at CannMed 2020 this year, but that will not be her only contribution to the event. Eloise will also be an instructor at a full-day Medical Practicum along with Dr. Bonni Goldstein, Dr. Dustin Sulak, Dr. Kevin Spelman. This is a great opportunity for healthcare professionals to learn about the latest research into cannabinoid therapies and also tap into the deep clinical experience the instructors have to offer. When you consider that most medical schools don’t teach the endocannabinoid system, courses like this are really the only way healthcare providers can learn how to properly administer cannabinoid therapies. Attendees will walk away with practical information about the different types of extractions and products that are on the market and optimal dosing.

Due to federal guidelines, CME credits for physicians are not available for the practicum, However, This course is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing for 9.5 contact hours**
