Signal launches Boston University podcast on major portals

Signal has helped Boston University School of Medicine bring its SCOPE of Pain podcast into the mainstream with access to the series now available through a number of popular podcast portals.

With the help of a Signal-developed RSS feed, the series is now available to a broad audience through iTunes, Google Play and Spotify.

Dr. Daniel P. Alford (pictured), Professor of Medicine and Course Director for the school's SCOPE of Pain program, started the podcast in April as an audio companion to the SCOPE of Pain website. Developed by Signal, the site provides online training and access to in-person educational seminars to health care professionals covering the topic of safe and competent opioid prescribing.

Dr. Alford's podcast episodes provide, in four minutes or less, helpful tips and advice pertaining to opioid prescribing challenges commonly faced by clinicians.
