There are three people in the online office kitchen today: Professor Matt Hickman, Dr Michael Kelleher and Dr Cathy Stannard. As you try to find a clean mug and wonder who has been using your milk, they discuss prescription drug use.

They talk about issues of over-prescription of opioid medications, treatment challenges, vulnerable populations and the differences between the situation in the US and the UK.

We hope you all stay safe.
