Physician Substance Abuse: Prevention through Reeducation.
Martin, Kathleen O'Kane; Mazmanian, Paul E.
Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions, v10 n1 p35-46 1990

Effective identification and treatment require a major change in how the medical profession views and addresses physician substance abuse. (SK)
