Healthcare Triage

This project will augment and update Healthcare Triage’s original video series on the opioid crisis by reviewing the latest research, including the strain of the opioid crisis on the health care system; the connection between opioids and suicide; and conflicting studies evaluating whether legalized marijuana is a viable alternative pain treatment. The series will also explore past policy failures and potential policy solutions moving forward.

Healthcare Triage is an online video series about health care hosted by Dr. Aaron E. Carroll, who explains health care policy, medical research and answers viewer questions about medicine, health and health care.
