e90 Hysteria Is Epidemic As Physicians Betray Patients And Reason In Equal Measure | This Underground Life...
For Honor, w/research slides edited in, patient & clinical safety advocate JC explores the hysteria fueling the global claims of a sudden opioid problem. JC goes on to show how this is not the case. Just a few of the more obvious flaws in the most cited, larger data sets, are highlighted.
The inclusion of suicides is a grievous error, not having anything to do w/opiates being "epidemic" - and whose numbers alone could account for the numbers, hysterically pointed to, in most cases.
Also homicides, which are, again, nothing to do w/any sudden opioid anything, but are rather deliberately misleading - they have been included in "opioid death" totals.
Even w/these fake data, the totals do not equal a "global public health crisis" or even a top 20 killer in ANY place in the world. Including the USA.
Indeed, by most metrics, ladders/stairs and lightning strikes far exceed "opiod overdose death" in any given state. The real crisis is the patriarchal fear of the most basic mathematics.
& the disregard for the day to day living of patients, and patient outcome satisfaction, regarding their care. Treating numbers instead of people.
False, impersonally large, & intentionally misleading numbers at that.
The fact that only the higher, more addictive, doses are not covered by government subsidies in Au. The former over the counter medications now jumping from ~$5 to ~$40. Yet another way this hysteria is hurting patients.
Not doctors, who self prescribe in every state.
At no point is it posited that addiction should not be treated. Nor that true over prescription* (*which is not a real thing, certainly no "public health emergency" either, but where/if it existed) should be addressed.
Policing and regulatory enforcement to stop "Dr shopping", or concentrated over prescribing, are where any changes would actually need to be made. & by "changes", I of course mean no changes; what we need is the exact system we had in place. & in any event: neither of these law enforcement issues are actual clinical issues.
Please, let's not only talk about "addiction medicine", & under treat pain, for the next 2yrs+ while this latest nonsense runs out of steam doing the (grand) rounds and book tours.
But we all know it f**kin' will not stop. Stealing funding & resources from actual clinical issues.
The only clinical issue in all of this is leaving patients in pain.
This is all delivered atop a #letsplay of #ForHonor.
And it is all Metaphoric AF. \m/^_^\m/
