Addiction Medicine: Beyond the Abstract

The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) announced in a 10/27/17 listerv email from the start of new podcast series from the Journal of Addiction Medicine,  Addiction Medicine: Beyond the Abstract.

Hosted by the Journal Web Content Editor, Shawn McNeil, MD, MBA, This new podcast is an ideal opportunity for readers and others interested in addiction medicine to get a closer look at the perspectives behind formal research articles. The podcast offers insights into the experiences of the authors and researchers behind the great work and development in the field. Listening to their stories and thought processes help listeners to connect with the experts behind the journal in a brand-new way.

Future podcasts will feature dynamic interviews with the many other experts tied to the journal and will explore an endless array of topics pertaining to addiction medicine. The next podcast is set for November to be released along with the journal issue. We hope many will join us for future installments of the podcast and we look forward to receiving feedback from our listeners.

In this very first podcast, Dr. McNeil was joined by Dr. Daniel P. Alford to discuss issues beyond the abstract. Daniel P. Alford, MD, MPH, FACP, DFASAM, is an Associate Professor of Medicine, Assistant Dean of CME, and Director of the Safe and Competent Opioid Prescribing Education (SCOPE of Pain) program at Boston University School of Medicine. Dr. Alford shared his medical background and expertise in the field of addiction medicine before delving into research material and deeper questions about the clinical practice.
