Opioid Resources

The Opioid Resource Pack brings together a number of resources clinicians can use to support the appropriate use and review of opioids used for chronic pain. The information included refers to the management of adult patients although some principles may also apply to use in older children.

The information in the resource pack does not apply to palliative care and end of life care where use of opioids should follow the World Health Organisation (WHO) pain ladder and relevant guidance.
