    The problem was funding. Just that simple. As a not for profit, it always had difficulty fund raising for issues surrounding chronic pain that was not cancer related or end of life. There is tremendous ignorance and bias where chronic pain is concerned even within the medical community.

    The real story is this: purdue got caught. They were completely funding this entire organization while telling their own reps and doctors they called on etc that the organization was an ethical 3rd party company. Therefore they are not biased.....All the while promoting LA opioids and therefore use age of oxycontin...great scam while it worked purdue.

    True! Purdue funded them and used them to promote their messaging. Wonder if AAPM will close soon for the same reasons?
