Standard of Practice for Prescribing Opioids

The College of Physicians & Surgeons of Manitoba has proposed new Standard of Practice for Prescribing Opioids (excluding patients with active cancer, in palliative care or at the end-of-life).  It outlines the way in which doctors will be permitted to prescribe opioids.  The consultation is open until February 16, 2018.  Please review the document and provide your feedback to the College via email at cpsm-sop-op@cpsm.mb.ca.  Please send a copy to us (at mmaruca@doctorsmanitoba.ca) as well so we are aware of your concerns and can ensure your voice is heard.
