There are increasing concerns about the number of prescriptions for opioid medicines being issued each year for people living with persistent pain.
So how does the prescribing in your practice measure up? Put up this poster in your offices to help you and your colleagues think about the opioid prescriptions you issue at your practice.
This resource is intended for professional use. We have also produced a variant of the ‘opioid thermometer’ that speaks directly to patients, encouraging them to engage with your team about what else they can do to manage their pain.
