Abstract

This preliminary test of a brief intervention designed to stimulate GP incorporation of cannabis enquiry was followed up after 2-3 months. Intervention comprised face-to-face discussion based on principles of motivational interviewing, with informational adjunct. Substantially more positive attitudes and greater clinical activity were observed following receipt of intervention.
