How do we fight back against the new CDC rulings?
Ok .you got me
What CDC ruling?
I am thinking narcotics but not sure.Please to clarify
Excerpt from today’s National Pain Report:
" If you have been on a stable routine of care that involved opiates and were forced to taper and you have been harmed by this process, please respond to Dr. Kolodney at @andrewkolodny, and at the same time copy @NatPainReport. Use the hashtag #forcedtaper.
Identify the location and city and state who has risked your safety by abandoning your care or forcing you to undergo a taper that was unsafe or led to complications.
We also offer our practitioner readers the same opportunity to tell Dr. Kolodny (@andrewkolodny) and the National Pain report (@NatPainReport) whether you have reduced your patient loads, tapered patients in accordance with CDC or VA Guidelines, or discontinued opioid prescribing regimens altogether in favor of other methodologies or practices. Tell us what’s going on within your practice discipline and your state location. Share with us how you are making decisions within this increasingly labile and complex care environment.
If you don’t have a twitter account, now is a good time to get one. Tell it like you have experienced it in 140 characters.
If you don’t want to set up a twitter account or don’t know how, share your answers with us at National Pain Report. We will make sure they are shared with our colleague Dr. Kolodny. Let’s work toward an improved and solution focused conversation."
WE NEED TO MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD. PLEASE RESPOND IF THIS HAS HAPPENED TO YOU.
