Episode 419: Opioid use disorder in primary care – PART III

In episode 419, Tina, Mike and James finish talking about managing opioid use disorder in primary care.  We find that positive reinforcement and brief counseling can be of some value but not the opposite – we realize we should treat this in a similar way to a chronic condition. We also realize that the evidence around urine drug testing and contracts is at best confusing and very limited.
