Best Science Medicine Podcast - BS without the BS

Best Science Medicine Podcast - BS without the BS

Dr James McCormack and Dr Michael Allan

The Best Science (BS) Medicine Podcast is a weekly presentation where practitioners can get evidence-based drug therapy content that is practical, entertaining and promotes healthy scepticism. In essence, we are the Medication Mythbusters. We present information that is useful and relevant to physicians, pharmacists, nurses, physician assistants and other health professionals, and that can easily be incorporated into day-to-day practice. The podcast is presented by Dr. James McCormack, Professor in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia and Dr Michael Allan, Associate Professor in the Department of Family Practice at the University of Alberta.

In episode 425, James and Mike invite Samantha back again to talk about the evidence around the incidence of opioid use disorder that we cause by prescribing opioids. The key issue seems to be whether or not your patient has a history of substance abuse.  Show notes Tools For Practice
