TheAnswerPage.com, founded by Stephen B. Corn, MD, is a continuing medical education (CME) website that has been providing CME certified content worldwide since 1998 and has become a recognized leader in providing unbiased peer-reviewed medical content focused on medical cannabis, pain and the opioid epidemic.

To help physicians, nurses and pharmacists meet the needs of their patients, in 2012 Stephen B. Corn, MD and Meredith Fisher-Corn, MD, Editor-in-Chief of TheAnswerPage, developed an extensive library of medical cannabis syllabus topics, including content written by world-renowned medical cannabis researchers and clinicians. TheAnswerPage’s accredited educational courses address the endocannabinoid system, phytocannabinoids, the administration of cannabinoid medicines, the physiologic and cognitive effects of cannabinoid medicines, the therapeutic uses of cannabinoid medicines and much, much, more.
TheAnswerPage recognizes that patient and caregiver education is equally important, and thus has launched a comprehensive medical cannabis educational course for patients and caregivers, as well.
The medical cannabis course offered at the CannMed 2107 is perfect for all types of healthcare providers. Attendees of the course will hear about the latest medical cannabis information from Courtagen invited team of experts. Following the non-credit lecture portion, attendees will have access to TheAnswerPage’s medical cannabis library for an entire year and can earn up to 22.5 CME credits, including risk management hours, at no additional charge. TheAnswerPage database stores and organizes each participant’s CME information and allows subscribers to easily download, email, or print CME certificates at any time.
TheAnswerPage is read in more than120 countries. Major US and international universities link to TheAnswerPage as an educational resource. U.S. state senators, state health department officials, the presidents of state medical associations, advocacy group leaders and foreign governmental health officials have consulted with TheAnswerPage about the educational needs of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, patients and caretakers.
In 2015, the New York State Department of Health selected TheAnswerPage.com to be the sole provider for the New York State required medical marijuana certification course. TheAnswerPage was also chosen to be the sole educational partner to the Florida Medical Association and Florida Osteopathic Medical Association in the creation of their state-required “Florida Physicians Low-THC Cannabis Course” and the “Florida Physician Cannabis Course.” In addition, TheAnswerPage is proud to note that at the recommendation of Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, The Israeli Ministry of Health is featuring the content created by TheAnswerPage for Israel’s National Healthcare Provider Cannabis Program. Top universities and medical societies have been linking directly to TheAnswerPage’s medical cannabis content since early 2013.
“The online medical cannabis CME education that I received through TheAnswerPage was absolutely fantastic. From a clinician standpoint, TheAnswerPage’s CME offerings provide a tremendous clinical background and current state of affairs with regard to medical cannabis, and provide clinicians with the baseline education that is required in this new and expanding area of medicine. The online program is easy to use, interesting, efficient and comprehensive. The fact that their programs are used by state governments to educate physicians on medical cannabis shows their commitment to provider education. I would highly recommend their online programs to any of my colleagues and in fact will likely use TheAnswerPage for the duration of my career,” Bryan Doner, DO, CHWS, FAPWCA, FACHM.
