Reflective Exercise for Registrants (Pre-event & Post-event)

This voluntary survey is for registrants of the Cannabinoids in Clinical Practice event. The goals of this survey are to: gather information about the registrants to inform speakers of the audience, provide an opportunity for registrants to reflect on their clinical experiences with cannabinoids and identify educational learning needs and practice gaps and establish a baseline level of clinical knowledge on cannabinoids, and identify additional educational needs on cannabinoids in clinical practice.

Registrants are encouraged to complete this survey twice: once prior to the event and once afterwards. Reflecting on clinical experiences and perceived knowledge levels both before and after the event will provide participants with the ability to consider potential changes to practice as a result of their participation.

Survey coming soon
