Professional Experience:

Since my retirement from direct patient care in 2009, my ongoing professional work has consisted of teaching, writing, and some medicolegal consulting in malpractice or criminal cases involving prescribing of controlled substances, as well as in cases involving allegations against health professionals by state medical licensing boards and the DEA. Also, under the auspices of Professional Boundaries Education. a medical education company, I created and have taught multiple times a year a 21 Continuing Medical Education credits (CME) course on appropriate prescribing of opioids to a target audience of physicians, PAs, NPs, dentists, physical therapists, other health professional, attorneys, etc., most of whom were referred by their professional licensing board because of difficulties in their prescribing; other professionals attend the course to prevent such problems. You can find information about my course at https://pbieducation.com

For the past 9 years I have been participating in “Project ECHO Pain,” a biweekly live computer-based educational program sponsored by the Weizman Institute https://painnet.net/members where a team of experts is connected to multiple primary care clinics throughout the U.S. Prescribers present complex chronic pain patients and we provide them suggestions for optimal treatment of that patient.

I am also on the Editorial Board of the journal Practical Pain Management, for which I also write an occasional column about opioid prescribing called “Ask the Expert.”
