Free webinar on opioid prescribing—NPS MedicineWise
AMA members may be interested in attending a free webinar titled: Opioid prescribing: strategies for GPs to optimise chronic non-cancer pain management and minimise harms.
The content of the webinar was developed based on feedback from over 450 GPs who completed the NPS MedicineWise health professional survey in August 2020 on what they wanted to know about, following recent reforms to opioid prescribing.
Discussion during the webinar will cover three key themes:
- Considerations when trialling opioids for chronic non-cancer pain
- How to identify patients at increased risk of harm, and strategies for minimising harm
- Appropriate strategies and practical ways to support patients during the opioid tapering process
Following the 1-hour presentation and discussion, panel members will be available for a further 30-minute live Q&A session with webinar participants.
The panel includes top Australian experts who specialise in the areas of chronic pain management and opioid dependence.
When: Thursday 15 October 2020
Time: 7:00 – 8:30pm AEDT
