          Abstract

          At the recent CSIM annual meeting in Toronto the opening plenary session was “The North American Opioid Crisis.” This is a fundamentally important topic for internists. We frequently encounter patients in our clinics and hospitals who have opioid dependency issues and we need to have a compassionate and medically sound strategy to manage the problems before us. We also have the opportunity to help prevent a problem that is often started with a physician’s prescription.
