All Things Considered: Except Patients

The doctor that we all know is biased should be ashamed of herself as look what’s happening now to CNCP patients & those with cancer as we decline even more or “so called guidelines for PCP” who they say write more than 50% of opioids. I don’t know about anyone else, but my PCP doesn’t & hasnt prescribed them in years. It’s a pain specialist I see who’s still following guidelines set up by his big city hospital that gets a lot of FEDERAL MONEY.

Host Robert Siegel said the nation was at a “turning point” in its complicated relationship with opioids. The broadcast interviewed pain specialists, a family physician, and various experts who said the CDC guidelines either go too far or are long overdue.
