Is your doctor addicted to drugs?
A scary question to ask, but one which has become necessary. And not just your doctor, but any other medical professional who might come into contact with controlled substances. I am not a pessimist by nature. I am a pessimist by experience.
Cathy Cassata takes an in-depth look not only at the problem, but also the solutions in her article posted a couple of weeks ago at TheFix.com.
I love this solution-focused approach, like Pete Eisler’s USA Today article from April, these pieces are not just the cold, hard facts, they include an education component so the average reader might take away tips to keep themselves safe.
With the support of the educated media, we push forward on the much needed discussions about drug diversion. Behind the scenes, HONOReform has partnered with other national organizations and the planning has begun for a much larger meeting, bringing in professionals from the medical field, legislators and others to take on the challenge. More on this in weeks to come.
For now, a huge thank to Cathy Cassata for putting pen to paper and helping to educate us all.
