Marijuana and the Workplace (Panel Discussion)

Moderated by Dr. Paul Atkinson, WorkSafeNB's Chief Medical Officer

AtkinsonAs the legal framework surrounding marijuana changes in Canada, marijuana in the workplace is a hot topic. Managing the impacts of marijuana in the context of Canadian workplaces is an emerging area and requires specialized knowledge of medical research, workplace policy and compliance, and case law. During this facilitated discussion, expert panelists from across relevant disciplines will provide delegates with an opportunity to participate in a discussion of the challenges presented by marijuana in the workplace as medical cannabis is increasingly prescribed, and as marijuana approaches legalization in Canada.

Treating Workplace Stress: A Doctor's Prescription

david posenAs the pace of work continues to increase, the economy sputters and jobs are in short supply, organizations and the people who run them keep ramping up their employees’ stress levels. Some workers wear their stress like a badge of honour; others resign themselves to what they see as the “new normal” and accept the situation as “the way it is”. The real truth is that workplaces are making people sick. Not enough people are talking about it, and when they do, no one is listening. Join bestselling author and renowned speaker on stress, David Posen MD, for a revealing look at workplace stress - what’s causing it and what can cure it. Simultaneous Interpretation
