  • Medical Guidelines are not Prosecutorial Tools
    "The WHO guidelines were never intended to be used as a prosecutorial tool. The invocation of the WHO “analgesic ladder” concept of progressive pharmacological treatment of pain, in state investigations of physicians, is sometimes unfair. On the one hand the guidelines are interpreted as rules and the physician is faulted for violating in some aspect. On the other hand, state rules and regulations are often at odds with the spirit and specifics of the WHO guidelines..."

  • Pain Patients Excluded from Senate Hearings
    Siobhan Reynolds; President, Pain Relief Network; Submitted testimony to the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Drugs, “Gen Rx: Abuse of Prescription and OTC Drugs“; 2008-03-08 Conclusion: "It is unfortunate that Pain Relief Network was not invited to represent the patients at this hearing, and so the public will instead be treated to a kind of government fear show pushing this year’s moral panic, prescription drug abuse, that seeks merely to distract attention away from the government’s astonishingly brutal and thoughtless drug war campaigns, willfully ignoring direct harm to millions of innocent citizens, though their plight is in plain view."

  • The Double Effect of Pain Medication - Separating Myth from Reality
    Very good review of this important principle: ..alex... ABSTRACT - The principle of double effect is used to justify the administration of medication to relieve pain even though it may lead to the unintended, although foreseen, consequence of hastening death by causing respiratory depression. Although a review of the medical literature reveals that the risk of respiratory depression from opioid analgesic is more myth than fact and that there is little evidence that the use of medication to control pain hastens death, the belief in the double effect of pain medication remains widespread. Applying the principle of double effect to end-of-life issues perpetuates this myth and results in the undertreatment of physical suffering at the end of life. The concept

  • Treatment of Pain and Substance Abuse
    When specialists and academics and researchers come together to discuss common barriers to optimal pain management, they have found opioid therapy complicated, in both the pain medicine and addiction medicine fields, by misapprehensions and myths. Portenoy and Payne identified “Four types of phenomena that exemplify the accommodations that must be made to further [the goal of dissemination of accurate and up to date information to the fields].” 2 I will consider these briefly, excerpting from “Pain Specialists and Addiction Medicine Specialists Unite to Address Critical Issues.” 3

  • USA v Dr. Martinez goes to Jury - Not Guilty on Drug Charges
    Excerpt: By targeting banal and ordinary medical practice, the Federal government gets the maximal chilling effect bang for their buck. The message of this case to physicians nationwide couldn’t be clearer - no physician prescribing opioid analgesic therapy for chronic pain is safe, even if you are obviously not a “pill mill,” obviously are a professional M.D., and are not even a “high dose prescriber” chronic pain doctor.

  • Utah / Feds Boldly Move Toward Solution to Addiction
    Excerpt: So, what have we got? We have local officials running around preparing for a hypothetical law enforcement problem the policeman is hyping. Through some horrific leap of irrationality and probably criminal negligence, state and local officials have taken law enforcement’s worst case scenario - that the doctor was a drug dealer, all of his “patients” criminal addicts, all the meds all of them were ever prescribed were 100% diverted to high school students leading to generations of misery and crime for sure - and blotted out any notion that there might be a medically directed public health approach to consider. And no criminal charges [against Dr. William Stack] have even been filed yet.
