Looks like CDC’s mission statement has been changed to be way past contagious disease issues ?

Imagine this one of CDC’s current goals is to INCREASING the number of people seeking NON-OPIATE pain management options.  Everyone should look at the link above and see all the non-contagious disease issues they are expanding their interest in.

does this suggest that the chronic pain community should not expect any revised CDC opiate dosing guidelines to have a POSITIVE IMPACT – improved pain management – if/when they decide to generate a update ?

  1. The CDC’s scope of authority does not extend beyond issues surrounding communicable diseases. On that alone their “guidelines” are invalid. But is a law anymore, …the opinion of one person, a microphone and a greedy media to enhance their viewership as lawlessness becomes ‘interesting’.
