A Bioethical Framework for Prescribing Opioids
May 16th, 2017 by medicalmind
Travis Rieder of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics describes his experience of opioid withdrawal after a serious accident and outlines a bioethical framework for opioid prescribing. John Renner of Boston University explains how stories like Rieder's fit into the larger picture of opioid use in America, and what must be done to address the educational gap.
