Working with AMCA to provide additional support to Patients and their HCPs
United in Compassion is Australia’s Peak Medicinal Cannabis advocacy body which helped bring about the 2016 legislative changes that made lawful cultivation of the plant for medical and research purposes possible.
Founded in 2014 by Lucy Haslam and her late son Dan, UIC’s main functions since then have been to promote education and knowledge around clinical uses of cannabis as well campaigning for improved patient access to what, for many, can be a life-saving medicine. This is in light of the fact that the 2016 Amendments to the Narcotic Drugs Act have failed and are failing to deliver on the promise to deliver affordable cannabis products for sick Australians who need them.
As a Foundation Partner, UIC will support AMCA in:
The Australian Chapter of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians (SCCAC) has been established by some of the founding members of AMCA as the Australian Chapter of the international Society of Cannabis Clinicians - a non-profit educational and scientific society of physicians and health care professionals dedicated to the education and research support of cannabis for medical use.
Like its parent organisation, SCCAC supports the practice of evidence-based cannabinoid medicine and will support the development of research studies to guide clinical decision making.
Health Care Professionals will have access to articles vetted by SCC Board members who ensure that only rigorous, unbiased, and non-commercialized studies are included.
