    Clinician-Scientist Training in Addiction Medicine: A Novel Programme in Canadian Setting
    (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2017-10) ; ; ;
    Medical education has long been the missing element in the response to the global addiction problem. Instead of treating addiction as a disease, governments have focused on drug prohibition and law enforcement. This approach has failed by many measures, and, as a result, millions of people have suffered. Addiction science has increasingly identified a range of evidence-based approaches to treat substance-use disorders, particularly through early identification and treatment. However, most interventions are underused. Better physician education can improve accurate use of evidence-based treatments.
