Increased Opioid Usage

Video

In the first in a series of videos on regulation of hydrocodone combination products, Mary Lynn McPherson, PharmD, discusses the dramatic increase in the use of opioids in the United States.

In this video, Mary Lynn McPherson, PharmD, professor and vice chair at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, discusses the dramatic increase in the use of opioids in the United States. This is the first in a series of videos in which Dr. McPherson argues in favor of categorizing hydrocodone combination products as Schedule II drugs. Jeff Fudin, PharmD, will argue against doing so. (Drs. McPherson and Fudin were assigned to take these positions for a session at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists 2013 Midyear Clinical Meeting in Orlando, and their arguments do not necessarily reflect their personal positions on the issue.)

These videos were filmed at the ASHP 2013 Midyear Clinical Meeting in Orlando.
