Speaker: Mr Austin Enright 

Learning Outcomes:

  •   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.
