A Call for National Standards and Oversight of State Physician Health Program

My paper of the same title was just published in the Journal of Addiction Medicine.  The title sums up the essence of the paper, namely that since other healthcare entities (such as hospitals and residency training programs) are subject to outside scrutiny, routine audits, and must conform to agreed upon standards, Physician Health Programs ought to be no different.  The link below is to the final proof prior to publication:

One Response to A Call for National Standards and Oversight of State Physician Health Program

  1. Laurie Hanna says:

    My husband is a pharmacist in SC. His license was suspended in June 2015 because a drug inspector falsely accused him of being impaired. She reported him to the SC board of pharmacy and the following day he was informed by the board that he had to either turn in his license or report to RPP(recovering professional’s program). He contacted RPP . After a short interview he was told he needed to be sent to Tennessee and detoxed . He was never drug tested until months later. His results were negative. Had to close our store after 28 years of business.
