Active Research Recruitment

Cannabis is now legal for personal use in Canada and women in their reproductive years have questions.   Are GP’s ready?

As a front-line provider, you urgently need to know how to advise women who are about to conceive, are pregnant, or are breastfeeding on the use of Cannabis. What are your views?  What is your current practice?  What more do you need to know?  What resources do you need to counsel patients? Policy makers and educators urgently want to help.

Following is a very timely research project created by 2 family practice residents to study these issues.  Your voice matters.  Please go to the link below and fill in this short questionnaire that should take only 3 min.  STUDY ENDS NOV 30


Cannabis and Pregnancy: What do GP’s Think, Know and Do?  An exploration of BC family physicians’ attitudes, knowledge and counselling practices regarding cannabis use in the preconception, prenatal and breastfeeding periods



Thank you in advance for your time and effort!   As you know such a survey is only as good as the numbers who participate.  So please take a moment to do so. Feel free to distribute this link to any GP’s in BC.


Sincerely yours,
Dr. Karen Buhler, Dr. Evelyn Cornellison
