This webinar will report on opioid dependence in chronic non-cancer pain from the five-year Pain and Opioids IN Treatment (POINT) study.
The Pain and Opioids IN Treatment (POINT) study was a 5-year NHMRC funded study to examine the benefits and outcomes of pharmaceutical opioids in chronic non-cancer pain management. This presentation will focus on the prevalence of opioid dependence in people with chronic non-cancer pain, the impact of different definitions on identifying people with opioid dependence, risk factors associated with opioid dependence and the dynamic nature of opioid dependence in people with chronic non-cancer pain.
