Medcare Health Systems Inc. and CannaWay Clinics Inc. will be introducing medical cannabis services to patients at up to 14 medical clinics across Ontariothrough a new partnership arrangement. The CannaWay Clinic Affiliate Program will be launching at six MedCare Clinics to initiate the province-wide rollout, in St. Catharines, Vaughan, Niagara Falls, Brampton and Markham.
“We developed the CannaWay Clinic Affiliate Program so that patients could access the quality care that we provide at CannaWay Clinic at the same doctor’s office they are used to visiting. By working with more physicians and expanding our own footprint, we are building a foundation of support for medical cannabis within the mainstream medical community in Canada,” said Dr. Teosar Bhesania, President, CannaWay Clinic.
Through the CannaWay Clinic Affiliate Program, patients of MedCare Clinics will now have access to:
- physicians with the knowledge and tools to provide comprehensive assessments for medical cannabis treatment plans;
- cannabis counsellors who aid with treatment plan implementation and support; and
- medical cannabis products such as oils, capsules and sprays from a variety of licensed cannabis producers (for patients who obtain a medial cannabis prescription)
Since recreational legalization, there has been an influx of patients requesting information about medical cannabis. The CannaWay Clinic Affiliate Program empowers the MedCare Clinics team to assess the appropriateness of medical cannabis with confidence for patients seeking relief from various symptoms or ailments.
