Medicinal Cannabis Cultivation – Training Courses and Forums in 2020

End of Year Dinner

Medicinal Cannabis Cultivation Training Courses and Forums | 2020 Dates

PharmOut will again host next year’s pharmaceutical / medicinal cannabis cultivation training course to help growers and pharmaceutical companies understand the extensive regulatory requirements for growing and producing medicinal cannabis products in the Australian and New Zealand regions.

The November 2020 conference, being held at the Sofitel Hotel on Collins Street in Melbourne, 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.

Facilitating the training will be Trevor Schoerie, arguably the leading Australian Medicinal Cannabis Consultant, and several other expert consultants for the medicinal cannabis and pharmaceutical manufacturing industry.

Last year’s event information (from our Archives)

Speakers at last year’s event included 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 also heard from John Ryan, CEO of the Penington Institute about 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, who was hot off the plane from the UK, also provided an update on her trip to the MHRA GMDP Symposium held 19-22 November in London. Maria presented the top GDP and GMP audit findings as we headed into full implementation of PIC/S version 13 (1st January 2019).
