Canadian Guideline for Safe and Effective Use of Opioids for Chronic Non-Cancer Pain
The practice recommendations in the Canadian Guideline will assist physicians to use opioids effectively and safely for chronic non-cancer pain. This clinical practice guideline will also help patients to be informed about the potential benefits and risks of opioids, and enable other healthcare providers to be aware of roles they can play to achieve desired patient outcomes.
The 2017 Canadian Guideline for Opioids for Chronic Non-Cancer Pain is a road map from deciding to initiate opioid therapy, conducting an opioid trial, monitoring long-term therapy, to managing opioid misuse and addiction in chronic non-cancer pain patients.
