Theme
Opioids and chronic pain - continuing the conversation
Description
Building on the success of the two forums we held in 2017, this consultative forum on opioids and chronic pain aims to bring together key stakeholders from the fellowship, other key medical disciplines, the consumer voice, policy makers, and regulators to help guide the activities of the FPM Board in this topical space.

Recently the faculty has had a prominent voice in advocating for the up-scheduling of codeine and educating the public on safer options. A standard within the opioid space is published in the March Bulletin and there are a number of initiatives that are being considered by board or work being led by other organisations that the board is contributing to.

The forum will include presentations from a number of bodies and speciality areas and will include group discussions around barriers to change and innovative solutions.
