Policy Magazine March/April 2016 - Opinion Editorial 'Prescription Drug Abuse and Canada's Lagging Regulatory Framework' by Dr. Craig Landau, (President and CEO of Purdue Pharma Canada) and Doug Sommerville (Teva Canada Ltd.’s GM)

It will negotiate a new Health Accord with the provinces and territories and invest in mental health, palliative care, vaccination uptake and population health interventions with First Nations communities. However, notably absent was mention of Canada’s National Anti-Drug Strategy which includes tactics to address prescription opioid misuse, abuse and diversion along with the broader utilization of abuse-deterrent/tamper-resistant formulations by pharmaceutical manufacturers. The Canadian heads of two leading innovative and generic pharma companies are of one mind on this issue.
