Practice Directive – Caring for Clients Authorized to Use Medical Cannabis

The College of Registered Nurses of Prince Edward Island (CRNPEI) and the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Prince Edward Island (CLPNPEI) are legislated to serve and protect the public interest through the regulation of individual registered nurses (RN), nurse practitioners (NP) and licensed practical nurses (LPN). For the purposes of this document the term nurse(s), will refer to all three designations of nurses in Prince Edward Island.

The Colleges’ mandate is to ensure Prince Edward Islanders receive safe, competent, compassionate and ethical care from nurses. One way we strive to meet this mandate is to develop resources about current or emerging nursing trends, so nurses may meet their standards of practice. The use of medical cannabis by clients is one such emerging trend.

Over the last two years, both Colleges’ have received calls from nurses with questions about their practice as it relates to caring for clients who are authorized to use medical cannabis. This collaborative practice directive was created to assist nurses to understand their accountabilities and to provide practice guidance, so they may meet their standards of practice and code of ethics when caring for these clients.

These directives do not apply to clients who have been prescribed a synthetic cannabinoid (e.g. nabilone).
