Journal of Opioid Management Welcomes New Editor-in-Chief!
Date:1/30/2008

WESTON, Mass., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Weston Medical Publishing announced today that Dr. Paul A. Sloan, MD, will take over as Editor-in-Chief of its Journal of Opioid Management (http://www.opioidmanagement.com/).

In making the announcement, publisher Richard A. DeVito Jr. pointed to Dr. Sloan's long standing record as one of the country's most respected leaders in the challenging field of opioid use and responsible management. Professor of Anesthesiology and Oncology at the University of Kentucky, Director of the Cancer Pain Service at UK Hospital and Chairman of the University of Kentucky's Clinical research Committee, Dr. Sloan sits on the executive committee of the American Board of Hospice and Palliative Medicine and has authored over 40 publications.

As the new Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Sloan assumes the Journal's leadership role at a time when the Federal spotlight has been switched on to the rising problem of abuse and addiction tied to these prescription painkillers.

"With this in mind," Dr. Sloan said in a recent interview, "our continuing goal with this important journal is to offer guidance to physicians and healthcare providers from the nation's foremost experts in how to safely prescribe and responsibly manage these powerful pain killing drugs. And because there are legal ramifications, we will also discuss critical legal issues and regulatory pitfalls pertaining to this class of medication." He also noted that Journal of Opioid Management (http://www.opioidmanagement.com/) is indexed and included in the National Library of Medicine's prestigious PUBMED database which allows physicians prescribing opioids rapid access to the NLM's vast store of medical information.

For submission or subscription information, contact the publisher, Weston Medical Publishing at 781-899-2702, or view our Web page at http://www.opioidmanagement.com.
