The Cannabis Knowledge Exchange Hub – Lessons for Dissemination


Based at Canada’s largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital, the Cannabis Knowledge Exchange Hub connects service providers and other stakeholders across multiple sectors with each other and with relevant, actionable evidence on cannabis use. Knowledge products developed by the Hub include fact sheets, evidence summaries, webinars, videos, practice-to-policy dialogues and more. This webinar will present the Hub as an innovative model for cannabis knowledge dissemination. We will share lessons learned from Hub development and the benefits of the Hub from a research perspective.
