Part Two of The Current
The Hand of Fate (Documentary)
Our project on Game Changers has typically looked at a person or achievement that's had long lasting impact. Dr. Sarah Jones certainly believed her personal game changing moment would be longlasting -- a permanent end to a successful career as a surgeon. And the Kingston, Ontario doctor wasn't alone in thinking she'd never operate again.
The Hand of Fate was produced by Lorenda Reddekopp.

Starting Thursday, shipments of the painkiller OxyContin will be replaced with an alternate drug, Oxy-NEO that's harder to abuse. But the abrupt end to OxyContin deeply concerns some health professionals who fear a health and safety crisis as thousands of addicts go into withdrawal.
Our story earlier this week prompted some response and we shared some of our listeners' views on this topic.
