Abstract

Aims

This guide aims to help general practitioners (GPs) prescribe opioids appropriately in the general practice context.
It is designed to discourage inappropriate use and reduce harms by providing GPs with guidance and practical
advice regarding opioid therapy. It is complemented by Part C2: The role of opioids in pain management and aligns
with Prescribing drugs of dependence in general practice, Part A: Clinical governance framework, which is available
at www.racgp.org.au/your-practice/guidelines/drugs-of-dependence-a
Scope

This document provides an overview of clinical standards for opioid use in general practice.
The guide covers:
• the evidence base for opioid prescribing
• opioid pharmacology
• common concerns regarding opioid prescribing
• the place for opioids (and other interventions) in general practice
• clinical governance strategies that support accountable prescribing of opioids within general practice.
Implementing principles from this guide should facilitate improved patient care and reduce the risk of GPs being involved in an adverse event associated with prescribing opioids.
