Beyond Clinical Medicine Episode 25: Opioid Light Initiative

August 24, 2020

In this #BeyondClinicalMedicine podcast, Dr. Randal Dabbs, TeamHealth Co-Founder, President of Practice Development and Chair of the TeamHealth Substance Use Work Group is joined by Dr. Marilyn McLeod, System Medical Director for Baptist Health of Memphis. Dr. McLeod discusses an initiative she helped create several years ago for the purpose of improving opioid use in her facilities called “Opioid Light.”
