In this episode of Addiction Medicine: Beyond the Abstract, we are joined by Dr. Daniel Alford of Boston Medical Center and Boston University School of Medicine. His new study takes a closer look at the continuation of opiate agonist treatment in the perioperative setting among women undergoing cesarean section. Dr. Alford talks about the study, its limitations and applicability, and how the findings compare to current trends in practice. He also discusses his career in studying and treating patients with these issues.
