Hi b1b2j3,

Thanks for putting this here, because this would be the more appropriate category. I have deleted the other one. Can I please ask you to not post anymore links to other websites, especially if they are from overseas, without moderator and/or Board approval. It is one of our rules.

We do have to be very careful what is said on this very public forum, because we work closely with both the govt and medical professionals, even though we are here to represent consumers/patients first and foremost.

So for us to continue to have a working relationship, we need to not be alienating ourselves from any of them.

However in saying the above, we are aware that there is a lot of hype surrounding these issues and we are currently engaging with govt and TGA over this as well as making public statements. So the points made in this article are not lost on us.

We want to focus on supporting our members and those who are not members, but suffer chronic pain. We don't want to get caught up in any kind of political stoush, which is why we police what is published on our site.

Thanks for your understanding on this. It is a hot button issue right now and we must all engage in this debate, but be careful what we publish and say.

It's okay. I'll leave it here for future reference. We need to be aware of what is being said and this is a good place to put this.

Thanks for understanding, but also thanks for caring enough to want to share. We just need to be mindful that is all.
