Management of Back Pain: Are Opioids Contraindicated?
Speaker: Mr Austin Enright
Wednesday 8th August at The East Pier Hotel in Napier.
Wednesday 15th August in the Education Room at Royston Hospital in Hastings.
- Opiates are not superior to anti-inflammatories in improving pain related function in back pain, and hip or knee osteoarthritic pain.
- NSAIDs show greater, or at least equivalent, improvements in pain intensity vs. opioids.
- Adverse medication-related incidents are increased with the use of opiods vs NSAIDs.
