Ramin unpacks opioid crisis response in The Age of Fentanyl
The following is an excerpt from Brodie Ramin’s Donner-nominated book The Age of Fentanyl: Ending the Opioid Epidemic.
Brodie Ramin is author of The Age of Fentanyl: Ending the Opioid Epidemic, published by Dundurn Press. It's one of five books nominated for this year’s Donner Prize for the best public policy book of the year. ‘Writing the book helped me get through the difficult experiences—the overdoses, the deaths, the challenging cases. I felt that by trying to understand and explain what was happening, it gave more meaning to some of those difficult moments, for me, my patients, and their families.'
