Research Focus

My research focuses on the evaluation of the safety, efficacy and effectiveness of novel patient-centred approaches to chronic pain management. My team conducts clinical trials and long term studies of the use of cannabis and cannabinoid medications, and we are involved in efforts to translate these findings into medical education for health professionals, and to evaluate the effectiveness of these learning approaches.
