This is the Dec, 2015 IPRCC meeting that talks about HHS’ plan and the CDC guidelines. Starting at 4hrs, 18 min, we have Wanda Jones, principal deputy to asst. sec of HHS speak about how HHS planned the guidelines. This is really interesting info.
At 4 hrs 41 min, the CDC rep presents the overview of the guidelines. At 4:52 sec., the Q and A’s. This really shows how there were a lot of concerns from the research panel (NPS) about the consequences and methods/bias involved in the formation of the CDC GLs.
#ipp #cpp #PROP
At 5 hrs 24 min we have the evidence that shows the IPRCC (NPS) was not happy about the CDC guidelines and had a discussion about how to handle that. Listen carefully.
At 5hr 36 min, 20 secs: “It’s naive to think it won’t have an impact. (The cdc gls) In fact, it flies in the face of everything the NPS stands for”.
At 5 hr 18 min, 20 secs: “I looked 5x & I’d thought at least one of the contexts that might be reviewed rapidly was to take a population who are doing well on opioids. We know there are at least a mill. ppl on OxyContin. Not all those ppl are dropping dead or abusing drugs”. 1/2
..”Some of the ppl are doing OK! There was no review of anybody doing well on opioids to understand whether there are any patient characteristics predictive of who might do well. So to me, that spoke to a kind of BIAS. So there we are.” 2/2
Here’s the link for the above quote.

I’ve wondered why Natl Harm Redux coalition & DPA w/partnered with a film & outreach program that promotes re-installing the 2016 cdc gls (according to leader Jamie Boyle) & publicizing a stigmatizing film aimed at demonizing rx opioids, while advocating for safe injection sites.

I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact these two sit on the board of directors for Natl HR Coalition. Also, DPA NY has long supported Alexis Pleus from TruthPharm, who helped Nan with her Sackler litigation publicity stunts. These groups are harming ppl who use drugs.
I was told that DPA is normally an “ally” to the pain/disability community. I was also told they have ppl that have joined their group that have been harmed by Purdue. I wonder why there’s a distinction b/t street initiation bs rx initiation and why they have a double standard.

“Winning the War on Opioids: A Behind the Scenes Look at The Largest and Most Complex Deal In The History of Jurisprudence”
“How US DOJ & Trial Lawyers circumvented public consent to create a work-around ban on rx opioids thru mass tort litigation.”…
“A nationwide solution. If you impose serious restrictions in one community, but not the next, offenders simply move their operations. By getting all states & all communities on board, it created a truly nationwide solution to a public health crisis.”

-mass rx restrictions 🤔
“This reform package includes the creation of a groundbreaking clearinghouse through which the Big Three will be required to account not only for their own shipments, but also the shipments of the other distributors, in order to detect, stop, and report suspicious orders.”

So I figured out why Barry was so intent on obfuscating the pain pts’ complaints about his reporting: he’s a niche investigative journalist that covers big class-action litigation, seemingly erring on the side of plaintiffs, which includes billion $ firms. #LitigationNarrative
Also really interesting afa #BarryMeier and his relationship with the prosecutor in the 2007 Purdue case.…

Roughly a year before Meier was tipped off about Oxycontin’s marketing issues, Barry wrote this strange little bit about Ron Motley Esq, who won big with the tobacco litigation, & went on to hire PROP member(s) as expert witnesses for opioid litigation.…

The real cause of the opioid related death explosion isn’t initial exposure to opioids. It’s separating ppl from their safer supply, be it from a MD or from a street source. Going after pharma/supply only made this worse b/c then the solution was to cut everyone off and stop RXs.
@US_Muckraker So IOW, when cops and public health depts (cause they’re partnered now in this endeavor) take out ppl supplying the drugs they deem “highly addictive”, they’re not just trying to ruin the lives of the “dealer” figure, they’re openly aiming to hurt the end recipient of the drug.
@US_Muckraker I find it shocking that so many supposed liberal ppl in medicine (that will be all about BLM, etc) are actually fostering a framework that was used for slavery as far as medical paternalism. The harm principle honors individuals own bodily autonomy, as long as others aren’t hurt.

Daniel Clauw is retaliating against scientific criticism, and making very non-evidence based generalizations conflating all causes of pain as one (that doesn’t respond to opioids), which reinforces how his non-opioid industry $ causes very biased misinfo.
Notice he flashed his disclosure slide so no one would have time to read it. That seems intentional, esp b/c most of the time, researchers leave the slide up long enough that it doesn’t appear to be a part of some subliminal message 💀 Image
Receipts for the first 7 pharma companies #DanielClauw consults for, showing they’re competing interests as far as pain txs:
