Human Rights Watch has released their 109 page Report entitled “Not Allowed to Be Compassionate”
Chronic Pain, the Overdose Crisis, and Unintended Harms in the U.S.
This is a significant milestone for pain patients, and gives us the footing to take the necessary steps to actually garner the respect and attention we deserve.
This will lay the groundwork to ensure that our Representatives put protections in place for both physicians and pain patients, and ultimately implement a National Pain Policy to clearly define and stipulate said protections.
We need ALL hands on deck to take immediate action in order to get this Report into the hands of our State and Federal Representatives & Regulatory Agencies.
