Netflix has just released a new drama about the Oxycontin story. Many similar techniques were used to promote gabapentin and other drugs for pain. What have we learned about prescribing analgesics? How should we now treat pain, in an era when opioid overdoses in younger people have become an intractable epidemic? Dr. David Juurlink is one of Canada’s leading research clinical pharmacologists, and a renowned clinical teacher at the University of Toronto. He was the guest of the Therapeutics Initiative at this special hybrid event on Monday, August 28, 2023.
