What Every Physician Wants Their Patients to Know: Narcotic Medications

8 minutes
Presenters: Jeffery Nelson, MD
The objective of this video is to educate patients regarding their diagnosis and proper treatment when narcotic prescription medications are involved. Physicians often have minimal time and resources to do this properly face-to face: we envision this video being used in the treatment room or a separate 'education' room after a traditional office visit. This program is designed to be informative and to help the physician guide the patient away from mal-adaptive behavior. It is brief, easily understandable, and retains the patient's attention through the use of quality content and graphical displays.
