Grant Program:
2020_MRFF_EPCDR_Medicinal_Cannabis_Clinical_Trials
Grant Activity:
A prospective, multicentre, randomised, blinded, two-arm parallel trial of Medicinal Cannabis Products for alleviating symptom burden in children with advanced cancer
Purpose:
We aim to investigate if giving medicinal cannabis (MC) to children receiving palliative care for advanced cancer, improves their symptoms such as pain. A prospective, randomised trial will assess the effectiveness, safe doses and side-effects of two (MC) products. We will also ask children and parents about their views on MC cannabis use. This study will contribute to the limited evidence around the role and safe use of MC in children, which can be used to inform future clinical trials.
