WESA Highlights Research Linking Gifts to Opioid Prescribing

November 5, 2019

Pittsburgh's WESA-FM highlighted new work from Mara Hollander, PhD candidate in Health Policy and Management, and a team including CP3 Co-Director Dr. Julie Donohue.  The research found correlation between gifts from opioid manufacturers and amount of opioid prescribing from physicians, with variation among specialties. Primary care physicians and neurologists were most likely to increase opioid prescribing after receiving gifts.
