Canadian College of
Family Physicians of Canada are excited to announce the launch of a new
campaign – Opioid Wisely: A national campaign to help reduce the harms
associated with opioid prescribing.
The goal of Opioid Wisely
is to raise awareness around the importance of clinician-patient conversations
to reduce harms associated with opioid prescribing. Central to the campaign is
a set of 14 specialty-specific recommendations for when it is unsafe to
prescribe opioids, along with a suite of patient resources. The campaign is
expected build over the coming months, with the rolling release of new
recommendations from other specialties, and additional resources for patients.
