Medicinal Cannabis Cultivation Training Course

PharmOut will be hosting a training course on growing medical cannabis and then turning it into medicinal cannabis products.

The course will focus on the cultivation, production and manufacture of Medicinal Cannabis, the practical questions around the most efficient facility design and your design choices within the constraints of the ODC and TGA regulations. We will discuss practical problems you may face as you design, build, validate and operate your Medicinal Cannabis facility.

End of Year Update Dinner

Following the cannabis cultivation training course will be hosting our last update dinner for the year.

We are excited this year to bring you three separate topics and speakers, the fist will be Trevor Schoerie, talking about how the medical cannabis industry will disrupt a number of industries. We are already seeing the impact of the medicinal cannabis industry on the Pharmaceutical employment market and the predicted growth over the last few years.

This event will make for an interesting and fascinating evening for those interested in this rapidly expanding, new industry. This expansion is creating wonderful opportunities for traditional pharmaceutical professionals looking for new challenges and opportunities.

We will also hear from John Ryan, CEO of the Penington Institute around the growing issue of prescription drug addiction. Opioid-related deaths are increasing rapidly in the United States and now becoming an issue here in Australia.

PharmOut’s Learning and Development Director Maria Mylonas hot off the plane from the UK will provide an update on her trip to the MHRA GMDP Symposium being held on the 19-22 November in London. Maria will present the top GDP and GMP audit findings and elaborate on these so you know what the biggest issues are as we are heading into full implementation of PIC/S version 13 on the 1st January 2019.
