About this study

This study is looking at how medical cannabis impacts driving and cognitive performance during the first few months of treatment.:

You may be eligible to participate if you:

  • have chronic pain
  • are 21 years or over
  • have a driver’s license
  • are about to commence (but have not yet commenced) treatment with medical cannabis

What’s involved?

You will be required to attend Swinburne University in Hawthorn on four separate occasions. The first visit will occur before you use medical cannabis for the first time. The other visits will occur at 4, 8 and 12 weeks after you have started using medical cannabis. 

On each of these visits, you will complete a driving simulation task, cognitive assessments and several questionnaires. You will also provide oral fluid samples. You will be reimbursed for your time and medication costs.
