Dr. Tran on Cannabis in the Elderly Primary Medicine Podcast

    • Medicine

Dear Listeners,







We are lucky to have Dr. Vu Kiet Tran back on the podcast.







Dr. Tran is an Emergency, Family Medicine, and Long-term Care physician with over 20 years of clinical experience in Canada. He has vast clinical knowledge in elderly care and is currently running a facility with over 200 residents.  







A 2020 survey from Better Aging Canada estimated that about 30% of patients over 50 years of age have been using cannabis since it was legalised, most of them for medical reasons. Of the 70% who were not using cannabis, about half were interested in trying it in the future. 







It is thus important to have a clear, science-focused picture of cannabis and its medical properties.  







Dr. Tran and Dr. Dimitre address this in a thorough, evidence-based discussion.
