Terms & Conditions

By submitting the patient registration form including declaration and consent: I consent to treatment with medicinal cannabis/cannabinoid medications. I understand that medicinal cannabis may not work for me; there is limited evidence on the efficacy of medicinal cannabis and is not the first line treatment for any medical condition. Acute and long term side effects are not well-known and I accept full responsibility for any risks associated with use of medicinal cannabis.

I understand that medicinal cannabis is still an unregistered medication in Australia by the Therapeutic Goods Australia (TGA). Therefore, access to medicinal cannabis need to be made through a Special Access Scheme or Authorised Prescriber scheme. I agree to have regular follow-ups as indicated by Dr Shu, and report any adverse effects and changes to other medications. Dr Shu may report my treatment outcomes to the state government. I understand that the cost of medicinal cannabis or organising reimbursement by third parties is solely my responsibility.

I understand that medical cannabis can impair my ability to drive, operate other vehicles/heavy machinery, or make important decisions. It is an offense to drive in Australia with any level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in my blood, urine or saliva. A legally issued prescription is not protective against these laws. I will adhere to State and Federal legal requirements pertaining to medicinal cannabis. I understand that medicinal cannabis interactions with other medications are not well known, and I accept risks associated with any interactions that may occur. I agree to share my clinical outcomes for research purposes.

I agree to receive communications from Dr Shu in the form of SMS, email, post and telephone I understand that if I do not provide at least 24 hours’ notice to cancel or change my appointments I will be charged a nonrefundable cancellation or ‘no show’ fee. I understand that aggressive behaviour is not tolerated and could result in discharging me from the practice.

I declare that all answers provided in the registration form and during the consultations are true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief.
