Medical Cannabis Outcome Research & Evaluation

The use of cannabis as a medical treatment for various health conditions has spread rapidly across the US, with legal prescribing and dispensing of medical cannabis (MC) now available in most states. Nevertheless, state policies vary regarding the management of MC programs. The (Medical Cannabis Evaluation Program) aims to gather information that will enable state leaders to recommend needed program changes in order to support the needs of program participants.


This project will focus on

  • Understanding patients’ experiences within a state MC program—both in terms of treatment access and health-related impact
  • Conducting a program evaluation of the Utah MC program
  • Building a patient-centered, stakeholder-engaged, sustainable platform for long-term health-related inquiry and knowledge dissemination
