DOPM Grand Rounds: Irrational Exuberance, Incautious Stoppage, Ethical Failure: Lessons from Our Prescription Opioid Story

This is a past event.

The goal of each DOPM Grand Rounds Seminar is to meet the following learning needs:

 1.   To aid faculty within the DOPM who are not broadly familiar with the full range of methods for advancing preventive medicine and public health objectives through academic and community-based activities.

2.    To aid DOPM faculty with experiences to enhance their capacity to critically evaluate the methods for advancing preventive medicine and public health objectives.

3.    To give DOPM faculty insight and knowledge from fellow faculty members regarding how to conduct successful preventive medicine and public health related research and interventions.

Dr. Stefan Kertesz will present, "Irrational Exuberance, Incautious Stoppage, Ethical Failure: Lessons from Our Prescription Opioid Story"

Objectives: From this presentation, learners will 
  • Understand the rise in US opioid prescribing until 2012 reflects events that can be analyzed as a form of "Policy Monopoly".
  • Apply both a clinical perspective and a policy analysis perspective to understand the reduction in opioid prescribing since 2012.
  • Be able to articulate some contradictory evidence on benefits and risks of prescription opioid dose reduction in long-term recipients.
  • Learn to anticipate challenges that often arise for clinicians or scholars who articulate points of view that do not align with an existing policy monopoly.
