Opioid Podcasts for GPs reducing the pain of opioid use

 

Aim: to provide up to date, easy access, brief sound-bytes of information on Opioid Education as relates to prescription and illicit opioid management in pain and addiction.

 

Opioid Podcasts for GPs , is a weekly series of short podcasts (around 7 minutes or less) providing GPs with information; it is hoped that a forum will develop to share ideas and discuss difficult situations (non-identifying), with input from Addiction specialists, Pain specialists and experienced GPs.

 

These podcast are produced by David Outridge GP, and FAChAM Trainee as a project under the auspices of Dr Steven Kelly Staff Specialist in Addiction Medicine, Kullaroo Clinic Gosford.
