The British Medical Journal (BMJ) recently printed a piece highlighting many of the problems with state Physician Health Programs (PHPs) that I have been writing about for several years. You can find the BMJ piece here:
I am so grateful that these issues are finally getting the attention they need. My own work was cited twice in the piece, which was nice also, but mostly it feels like there might be some light at the end of the tunnel. All that is needed is for PHPs to begin to operate transparently, with real oversight, create and adhere to national standards of operation, and cease their ties to evaluation/treatment centers with whom they have significant financial (and other) conflicts of interest.
