I respect Hiroko Tabuchi but once again, we have a NYT story on #COIs btw #academia and industry focused on the wrong points. Far too much time is spent on compliance w/ disclosure requirements, when disclosure FAILS as a remedy for #MotivatedBias.…

More discussion is had on the notion that the sponsor has "no influence" on the work of the center at issue when we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is the depth of the relationship btw the sponsor and the center that leads to behavior of partiality.

Listening to the #CDCOWG from perspective of #caregiver & advocate was disheartening. For me @CDCDirector assurances that #patients voices were heard was meaningless. She may say that we’ve been heard but then how are so many feeling as we haven’t been? Why are the #legislation 2
of these guidelines continuing? Why are those who have benefitted from #opioid #pain medications being removed, shamed & stigmatized? Why is care not individualized? It’s very clear our #voices have not been heard. There is nothing that was said that eased my concern for 3/

Have a look at Anna Lembke’s official statements about opioids for her expert witness testimony. #opioids #PainProfiteers #PROP #COIs #Pain…
A podcast from a few years ago that showcases her blatant and unapologetic ableism. *Trigger warning.* It’s worse than her Ted talk.
