    Civil Litigation and the Opioid Epidemic: The Role of Courts in a National Health Crisis.Abbe R. Gluck, Ashley Hall & Gregory Curfman - 2018 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 46 (2):351-366.
    The devastating impact of the national opioid epidemic has given rise to hundreds of lawsuits. This article details the extremely broad range of legal claims, compares the opioid cases to other public health litigation efforts, including tobacco, and describes the special mechanism — a multidistrict litigation — through which more than 700 opioid-related cases have been consolidated thus far, with settlement almost certain to follow.

    Pain and Addiction in Specialty and Primary Care: The Bookends of a Crisis.Joseph R. Schottenfeld, Seth A. Waldman, Abbe R. Gluck & Daniel G. Tobin - 2018 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 46 (2):220-237.
    Specialists and primary care physicians play an integral role in treating the twin epidemics of pain and addiction. But inadequate access to specialists causes much of the treatment burden to fall on primary physicians. This article chronicles the differences between treatment contexts for both pain and addiction — in the specialty and primary care contexts — and derives a series of reforms that would empower primary care physicians and better leverage specialists.

    Health Care Federalism and Next Steps in Health Reform.Abbe R. Gluck & Nicole Huberfeld - 2018 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 46 (4):841-845.
    The next steps in health reform, like all such efforts before it, will have to engage the issue of American health care federalism – the relationship between the federal and state governments in the realm of health law and policy. Since its enactment in 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has offered a robust example of modern federalism and revealed new complexities. This article recounts the findings of our five-year study of the federalist and nationalist features of ACA (...)

    This article examines five different Medical-Legal Partnerships associated with Yale Law School in New Haven, Connecticut to illustrate how MLP addresses the social determinants of poor health. These MLPs address varied and distinct health and legal needs of unique patient populations, including: 1) children; 2) immigrants; 3) formerly incarcerated individuals; 4) patients with cancer in palliative care; and 5) veterans. The article charts a research agenda to create the evidence base for quality and evaluation metrics, capacity building, sustainability, and best (...)

  7. Gun Violence in Court.Abbe R. Gluck, Alexander Nabavi-Noori & Susan Wang - 2020 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 48 (S4):90-97.
    Litigation cannot solve a public health crisis. But litigation can be an effective complementary tool to regulation by increasing the salience of a public health issue, eliciting closely guarded information to move public opinion, and prompting legislative action. From tobacco to opioids, litigants have successfully turned to courts for monetary relief, to initiate systemic change, and to hold industry accountable For years, litigators have been trying to push firearm suits into their own litigation moment. But litigation against the gun industry (...)

  8. Understanding the Role of Law in Reducing Firearm Injury Through Clinical Interventions.Blake N. Shultz, Carolyn T. Lye, Gail D'Onofrio, Abbe R. Gluck, Jonathan Miller, Katherine L. Kraschel & Megan L. Ranney - 2020 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 48 (S4):146-154.
    Firearm injury in the United States is a public health crisis in which physicians are uniquely situated to intervene. However, their ability to mitigate harm is limited by a complex array of laws and regulations that shape their role in firearm injury prevention. This piece uses four clinical scenarios to illustrate how these laws and regulations impact physician practice, including patient counseling, injury reporting, and the use of court orders and involuntary holds. Unintended consequences on clinical practice of laws intended (...)

    Treatment Innovation in Orthopedic Surgery: A Case Study From Hospital for Special Surgery.Seth A. Waldman, Joseph R. Schottenfeld & Abbe R. Gluck - 2018 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 46 (2):238-240.
    Excessive prescribing of pain medications after surgery has contributed to the epidemic of opioid misuse and diversion in the United States. Pain specialists may be particularly well situated to address these issues. We describe an attempt to reverse the trend at an orthopedic surgical hospital by implementing a peri-operative assessment and treatment service which minimizes preoperative opioid use, when necessary implements addiction treatment, and encourages early tapering from opioids.
