Overview
Scott G. Weiner, MD, MPH, FAAEM, FACEP is an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at Harvard Medical School and an Attending Emergency Physician in the Department of Emergency Medicine, Division of Health Policy Translation, at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Dr. Weiner completed medical school at the University of California, Irvine. He completed his residency training at the Harvard-Affiliated Emergency Medicine Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and subsequently his MPH degree at the Harvard School of Public Health. He serves on the executive board of the Massachusetts College of Emergency Physicians.

Dr. Weiner’s research focus is on identification of substance use disorder in the emergency department, particularly as it relates to prescription opioids. He has studied the effects of prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) on prescribing behavior, in comparison to clinician gestalt, and in relation to opioid risk screening tools. His recent research evaluates opioid prescribing behavior from the ED. He is also interested in implementation of prescribing guidelines and technological innovations that improve the care of ED patients presenting with pain. Dr. Weiner has authored more than 40 peer-reviewed papers over a decade of clinical and research experience.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
