Children’s Hospital Colorado physicians would like to learn more about medical marijuana in children with brain and spine tumors. If you are planning to provide medical marijuana to your child for either treatment of his/her tumor or management of side effects of other treatment (such as radiation or chemotherapy) and would like to participate in a research study, please email CNSOncologyresearch@childrenscolorado.org.
The goal of the study is to evaluate whether medical marijuana use is associated with a change in the quality of life of children with brain or spine tumors.
Physicians at Children’s Hospital Colorado are not registered prescribers of medical marijuana, and medical marijuana will not be provided to patients as part of participation on the study.
Principle investigator: Nicholas Foreman, MD
