A Clinical Guide to Opioid Analgesia is designed to guide clinicians in the responsible use of opioid analgesics for the treatment of pain. It helps practitioners make practical sense of varied pharmacologic, clinical, and regulatory issues surrounding opioid therapy as they work to obtain the most healthful outcomes possible for their patients.
Opioid analgesics can provide effective relief to many patients suffering from acute or chronic pain. Still, these potent medications and their use need to be managed carefully and targeted responsibly. A proper balance between appropriate access to opioids and a proactive effort to present misuse is inherent to responsible prescribing.
