Opioids Q&A - June 2017

There is no simple response to the opioid crisis and many family physicians face tremendous challenges in fulfilling our commitment to compassionate, high-quality care, while navigating the changes being spurred by the crisis itself.

In this discussion, Dr. Arun Radhakrishnan and Dr. Leah Skory address issues that are front and centre for family physicians, including the recent introduction of the 2017 Canadian Opioid Prescribing Guideline.

Drs. Radhakrishnan and Skory are both family physicians and members of the OCFP’s Collaborative Mentoring Networks, which include the Collaborative Mental Health Network, or CMHN, and the Medical Mentoring for Addictions and Pain Network, also known as MMAP.
