Docs you all write brilliant articles, but unless they're affected people don't read them.

PLEASE watch this 2 min video, this is URGENT! There are articles attached to prove this is critical. This can affect every #American. People are needlessly dying, We need your #Help
Almost 6 decades ago the UN addressed the under-treatment of pain, despite narcotic pain relief many people around the world suffer needlessly. In 1961 we recognized the undertreatment of #pain is a #HumanRights abuse. #RNC & #DNC are you listening?

The #DEA is arguably waging a war against the weakest members of society These are #HumanRights abuses! #Trump Administration you think #KidsInCages was bad!

Plz, use the link in the article to let the DEA know what you think about more cuts to supplies
It is a really bad idea to cut back, even more, when the USA was equated with a 3rd world country for #pain control in 2018.
Enough is enough with # StanfordPhsychiatry taking us back to a time where Drs ignored #HumanRights for adequate pain control. nurse.org/articles/us-ho…
Actual studies are surfacing after 10 yrs of PROPaganda. It is an #opioidmyth that our Drs are causing addiction & overdose deaths. Our top patient advocate groups have been correct all along, ignoring them is malfeasance at best It should be criminal.
There are #noexcuses for the government malfeasance in implementing those guidelines as if they were law, here is a letter signed by some of the top Drs in #pain M. It could lead the public to believe that the death & suffering inflicted was intentional

It is really hard to study those who have severe intractable pain, the group without meds drops out, but since the FORCED tapers & cutoffs over the past 10 yrs. UW study was stark & as predicted FATAL

#CPP still don't have access to effective treatments!

Life for #CPP is tough enough then to have #AnnaLembke say people choose this "sick role" being humiliated, degraded as if being in pain isn't enough. She tells the public Drs are dealers, & FORCING patients to face debilitating pain is compassion?

Excellent overview of what has happened & how to begin to fix it.
wrote an excellent article and has included policy recommendations

Is anyone going t be held accountable for the suffering inflicted on #CPP & the Drs who treat them? #DOJ
The FACT that a #Senate hearing was held, & meetings have been held with countless #Politicans. They write a letter, it is in the #MSM for a day, then crickets. This can no longer be ignored!
RIP, this is tragic! medium.com/@ThomasKlineMD…
JIC after all this evidence someone brings up the #opioidcrisis, it is illicit #fentanyl and it always has been. Our Drs write more Rx because DEA & states force Drs to write for a few days, no matter how severe.
Co-pay for visit & med every few days. Seniors $40 ea Despicable!
