Practice toolkits to increase safety

The Canadian Guideline for Safe and Effective Use of Opioids for Chronic Non-Cancer Pain is an evidence-informed guide for all aspects of patient management with opioids.  Many of its principles can be applied to other controlled drugs and substances as well.

The Practice Toolkit developed as part of this guideline contains quick links to many practice tools.

Evidence-informed tools that can be used for conducting risk and pain assessments as well as sample treatment agreements are included in this resource.
