War on Doctors, and the Pain Crisis

This Collection focuses on: the pathophysiology of chronic pain; pharmacology of chronic pain including opioid pharmacology and adjunctive therapies; global prohibition and the history and present reality of drug war imperatives brutally imposed on physicians, the distortion of medical ethics and standard of care for pain management and chilling effect our society's opiophobic worldview has on the appropriate medical treatment of chronic pain. How many chronic pain patients are we willing to sacrifice in order to "catch" one prescription drug misuer?
