In this episode, we create a role play scenario of a challenging patient who presents seeking benzodiazepines. Dr. Jouney and Dr. Wang will role play the scenario, and then we have a group discussion of the approach to take when you encounter difficult patients who are seeking controlled substances. Lots of valuable clinical pearls within!

Part 2 of this series will be coming out on August 1, 2017, and will have a similar role play, but involving a different scenario with a patient on a very complicated medication regimen. Stay tuned!
