1/ Of all the things we have produced what people find hardest to understand are the ones dealing with medico-legal and compliance issues. This is because people are not used to the language.

2/ However doctors & orgs do interact with the law. Doctors receive lectures dealing with those aspects that are relevant to them. This includes topics such as consent, assault, euthanasia, medical negligence, indemnity, medical records, data protection, the list goes on.
3/ We also discuss ethics, the role of religious beliefs, end of life care, clinical guidelines, communications (inc social media), diagnostic coding, whistle blowing, etc – which maybe isn’t primarily about law but refers to it where relevant and the law still applies.

The column opens by recounting a recent, extremely public, extremely egregious example of #RegulatoryCapture: the way that Trump's FCC chair @AjitPai - a former Verizon lawyer - killed #NetNeutrality. 3/

We need to broaden our discussion on #regulatorycapture. The typical understanding is too narrow and based on a faulty understanding of #economy and #regulation as a one-shot game. It's not; the market is a process, and action in it and regulation of it have process implications.
The standard interpretation seems both neutral and innocuous, but it is not. It asserts a certain order of events that has support neither in theory nor empirically: that government agencies are implemented to then be captured/corrupted.
The creation-then-capture logic doesn't hold in what is often called a "repeated game," i.e. in a world where parties can act and react to each other's actions more than once and therefore cause systemic adjustments, adaptations, and even symbiosis.

Prior to intro. of user fees in 1994, #HealthCanada was solely funded by tax dollars - therefore accountable to the public. By 2018, approx. 50% of #HealthCanada’s budget came from #Pharma. Quietly announced in Oct 2017 was intention to increase to 90%.
On May 27, 2021, Dr. Patrick Phillips was asked if the data in Canada's adverse event system can be trusted. He replied "absolutely not" & suggested #VAERS may be more reliable. However, "HHS’s own studies indicate that VAERS may be understating vaccine injuries by OVER 99%."

"Companies’ connections are like a plate of spaghetti. They have licensing agreements with each other; they even promote each other’s drugs in a number of instances."

"Conversely, doctors who take money from one drug company anticipate getting money from other drug companies—and typically that’s the case. We’ve got doctors who’ve taken money from about 15 different companies in a single year."

Ok so here’s the news report (I couldn’t find a paper) showing Remdesivir improves time to recovery in #COVID19…
And here’s the Lancet study from China showing no mortality benefit from remdesivir:…

BEFORE READING THIS THREAD, do you think this statement is TRUE or FALSE?

Despite being a documented #epidemic for decades, @HHSGov's #CenterForDiseaseControl(@CDCgov) intentionally obstructs its collecting #statistics on what causes at least 10% of deaths NEEDLESSLY every year.

HINT: You already know of these systemic #DataScams due to #PublicCorruption & #RegulatoryCapture:

🤥#UScensus is maliciously biased

Thread coming soon about #CauseOfDeath #DataFraud

#AmericanSwamp #MedicalControlFraud

ANOTHER HINT: My inability to escape intrahospital, interhospital & health/disability insurers’ #ConspiracyAgainstRights using #MedicalControlFrauds exposes motive of the right answer.

Watch this video later to understand #PublicCorruption by example📽️

The #UCRegents suing #UCLAHealth’s radiologist & #UCLA professor Robert Lufkin MD (CA lic#G43135) is like the clichés about irony:

👏The pot calling the kettle black
👏People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones
👏Birds of a feather flock together…
The state of California’s #UCRegents suing Robert Lufkin MD is suspicious to me, as I have reason to think Lufkin is a suspected #MandatedReporter #Accomplice of the #UCRegents & #UCLAHealth’s #CriminallyFraudulentPrivateMarketDiscipline that depends on #RegulatoryCapture.
