I’ve long noticed that research on pain and opioids has become ridiculously biased to support the “opioids are evil” narrative, measuring milligrams of opioid instead of patient outcomes. (See Opioids Blamed for Side-Effects of Chronic Pain)

Research misconduct is challenging to measure and there are few studies reporting the prevalence or underlying causes of research misconduct among biomedical researchers.
