Surgery and Opioids

This third FPM podcast discusses Surgery and Opioids, a topical subject!  Guidelines have been produced by the Faculty of Pain Medicine which are referred to throughout the discussion and are free to download from the FPM website. There is much interest in better managing opioids in the peri-operative setting and this podcast will give you some practical hints and tips.
