JAMA Forum: The Public Health Challenge of Drug Overdose « news@JAMA


This JAMA Forum article, by Joshua M. Sharfstein, MD, a pediatrician and Secretary of the Maryland Dept of Health and Mental Hygiene. A balanced piece. I particularly like how he finishes it!  “..sees the problem in full.”  This should include the under treatment of pain!

“With so many perspectives on the challenge of drug overdose, and so many possible solutions, there is no substitute for political leadership that sees the problem in full. On such a complex issue, such vision can set the stage for meaningful progress.”
