Chronic Non-Cancer Pain Management and Opioid Resources

About The Pan Canadian Collaborative

The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), as part of the Pan-Canadian Collaborative on Education for Improved Opioid Prescribing, and in response to Health Canada’s 2016 Joint Statement of Action to Address the Opioid Crisis, is partnering to provide educational resources for opioid prescribers. The Collaborative aims to address the harms associated with prescription opioids—including addiction, overdose, and death—while ensuring Canadians have timely and appropriate access to optimal treatments for acute and chronic pain.

The CFPC is committed to providing its members with timely educational resources that promote safer prescribing and high quality patient care.

The Collaborative is composed of members from the following organizations:
  • The Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse
  • The Canadian Medical Association
  • The Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada
  • The College of Family Physicians of Canada
  • The Federation of Medical Regulatory Authorities of Canada
  • Memorial University of Newfoundland MDcme
  • Michael G. DeGroote National Pain Centre at McMaster University

An end to opioid marketing: What do family physicians think?

Health Canada is asking opioid prescribers for feedback on its proposal to restrict the marketing and advertising of opioids. The Notice of Intent is posted on the Health Canada website. We believe that family physicians’ input is crucial to this initiative. Your responses will contribute to the cost-benefit analysis of this proposal. Please review the proposal and survey, and send your responses by September 7, 2018, via email to [email protected].
