Wow, can anyone point me to reputable sources for these generalizations about who is addicted most? NOT GROUSING, just wondering.
Lundy & McQuillen: "Narcotics & Anesthetists: Occupational Hazard"
Ward-Saidman Study- retrospective study:
289 training programs (247 return)
68% indicated 1 suspect: 80% confirmed
30 suicides (among 235 identified abusers)
80% recognized by staff MDA/CRNA
General public with a relapse rate of 80%
...Just a cut/copy/paste from a lecture by Diana Quinlan last semester.
