Dr. John S. Kim speaks at "From Injury to Addiction"
Dr. John S. Kim speaks out in support of patient advocacy and education at "From Injury to Addiction" Event.
"We were thrilled when Dr.Kim agreed to join this conversation. There's some ambivalence in the medical community to talk about Opioids because doctors have been characterized as pill pushers, but Dr.Kim believes the problem is systemic and can be addressed within the medical community." States Dr. Choi of Ichthus Injury Network, who is serving on the host committee for the event "From Injury to Addiction", "Conversely, Dr. Kim has been extremely vocal about responsible case management and advocating for patient education. He fearlessly leads the charge that the medical community has an opportunity and a responsibility to end this crisis."
Dr.Kim knows that there are many challenges his fellow physicians are facing, he states "Patient education is an important part of health care but progressively, physicians are squeezed by reduced reimbursement to see more patients in less time. Physicians are limited in how many patients can be seen adequately in a single day."
