Information for QUEST- enrolled doctors

If you would like any assistance with products or scripts please contact The QUEST Initiative team on 1300 664 369 or email medical@thequestinitiative.com.

The QUEST Initiative is still recruiting for patients but we are getting close to capacity for the first stage of the study. Our team will be in touch directly with you when the recruitment for new patients has closed.

If a patient would like to opt-out of the study, the prescribing doctor will be required to inform the University of Sydney researchers. Withdrawn patients can still access medicinal cannabis but may no longer receive the study discount.

If any patient would like to stop taking medicinal cannabis, the prescribing doctor is required to plan an exit strategy to titrate the patient off the medicinal cannabis and monitor them as per the initial standard patient monitoring plan submitted in the Special Access Scheme (SAS) application with the TGA.
