We had the opportunity to have an extremely valuable experience in interviewing a network of people from various areas who have the lived experience of the war on drugs.  The focus is hearing how they would like to be treated when presenting to the emergency department.  Their lived experience will cause any health provider to reflect on their practice and make simple changes to make everyone's experience of care better!

This month we talk about mask wearing and share our opinions on mask wearing.  And really we ask the question...why is this even a question?  Love us or hate us...we have an opinion on the matter!  Note this was recorded mid-September 2020 and took us a bit of time to get online (obviously information changes as time goes on...).
