Drug War Dragnets and Trans Health: Patient Privacy in the Age of Prescription Monitoring Programs
Featuring Leo Beletsky, Associate Professor of Law and Health Sciences, Northeastern University School of Law

With the stated goal of curbing drug diversion and misuse, prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) enable health care providers, law enforcement, and regulators to access patient medication profiles without their consent or prior authorization. In the context of the opioid crisis, the scope and reach of PDMPs has expanded rapidly. This has occurred largely without adequate attention to ethical and privacy considerations, including the particular concerns of LGBTQ patients. Anchoring the discussion in a legal challenge joined by two transgender men in Oregon, this presentation will interrogate the appropriate balance between state surveillance and patient privacy in the design and implementation of PDMPs.
