American Academy of Pain Medicine Rejects “Fake News”

The American Academy of Pain Medicine stands by our colleagues in the AMA to condemn the statements by President Trump referenced in a recent New York Times article, regarding accusations of profit and self-interest in taking care of patients during the pandemic. Physicians have put themselves and their families at risk in executing their Hippocratic oath to treat patients despite the personal risks. In addition to balancing the treatment of acute and chronic pain with the need to keep our patients safe from COVID, a majority of our members are anesthesiologists, many of whom are working in hospitals to take care of the critically ill as well. At AAPM we support our members’ selfless dedication to our patients, despite the risks of personal harm.
