Usefulness of Prescription Monitoring Programs

I ranted recently about Florida’s Governor Scott’s bizarre decision to give the axe torpedo their prescription monitoring program (see March 8th, also March 6th). Now I’d like to post a link to a thoughtful piece about how prescription monitoring can have positive effects.

This link was found on Brandeis University’s Center of Excellence. These folks do research for public policy surrounding prescription monitoring, among other things. The first URL below is for their home page; the second is for the specific article that I thought was interesting.
