Our Goals

  • Establish an Evaluation Advisory Board that includes community members and health care providers who will work with our research/evaluation expert team. 
  • Answer immediate critical questions of program effectiveness and patient benefit using a mixed methods prospective evaluation framework.
  • Topics of interest include methods of medical/non-medical cannabis acquisition, patient use characteristics, provider characteristics, monthly product costs, barriers to MC access, effects of medical treatment over time, reasons for discontinuation, patient experiences in the program, and recommendations for program improvement.
  • Identify barriers and facilitators of long-term prospective cohort utilization following the initial evaluation period—which will lay the groundwork for continued evaluation and research of the Utah MC program into the future.
