Exploring policy and clinical perceptions of access to cannabis for chronic pain in Canada and Australia

Comparative strategies in evolving contexts, and implications for consumers
Researchers at the University of Sydney want to hear about your experiences of using medicinal cannabis for your chronic pain.

This pilot study involves a single focus group of up to five people for about 1 ½ hours to hear about your experiences and perspectives around access to medicinal cannabis in managing your health condition. The study findings will provide a better understanding of barriers to medicinal cannabis access and use, and will inform a planned large multi-national study investigating patient experiences of using medicinal cannabis for chronic pain. 

The focus group will be conducted via Zoom or other online platform. 


We are seeking people aged 18 year and over, who are currently using medicinal cannabis for management of their chronic pain.
