  5. Helping the Impaired Physician: A Program for Colleagues

    Physicians have ready access to a wide range of narcotic drugs and other controlled substances. Despite their professional training and knowledge of the problems associated with these drugs, physicians and other healthcare professionals are not immune to the risk of addiction. According to one estimate, as many as 17,000 U.S. physicians may have substance abuse problems at one time.

    Anesthesiologists and family physicians appear to be at particular risk; residents in emergency medicine, psychiatry and anesthesiology may also have higher than average rates of addiction. Substance abuse by physicians can destroy lives, families, and professional careers. Their errors can cause irreparable harm to their patients, and their colleagues and employers could be held jointly liable.

    Despite this grim picture, with early detection, intervention, and effective treatment, more than eighty percent of impaired physicians can recover. This provocative training program is designed to help colleagues and employers of impaired physicians (as well as impaired physicians themselves) to recognize substance abuse problems, and to take prompt and effective action. The program is hosted by CBC medical journalist Dr. Brian Goldman, MD, FACEP, MCFP(EM).

  6. Preventing Drug Diversion: A Program for Physicians

    Today's powerful new pain medications offer patients more effective and convenient relief of pain than has ever been available before. But many of these medicines, including both opioid and non-opioid analgesics, are sought by addicts and "recreational" users as well. Physicians, nurses, and other healthcare staff may have difficulty distinguishing con artists and drug abusers from legitimate patients. Federal and state regulations, and their own professional ethics, place an increasing burden on clinicians to prevent diversion of drugs into the illegal market.

    This engaging training film will help physicians and other learn to prevent drug diversion and to comply with current legal requirements without unduly increasing costs or, more importantly, compromising patient care. A Study Guide supplementing the video is available online. The program is hosted by CBC medical journalist Dr. Brian Goldman, MD, FACEP, MCFP(EM).

    The program won a gold plaque at the Chicago Intercom Festival and was a short-list finalist at the American Medical Association Film Awards.
