Pain Management and Opioid Prescribing

March 7, 2017

Physicians around BC are taking steps to support the profession in dealing with the challenges around opioid prescribing and pain management in local communities.

Divisions of Family Practice, funded by Doctors of BC and the provincial government, are hosting local learning events and creating and compiling resources on opioid prescribing and alternative pain management models.

Some of these are clinical resources intended for a physician audience (i.e., to support decision-making in the prescribing process) and some are resources and community links that physicians can provide to patients on alternative pain management strategies.
