The new 2017 Canadian Guideline for Opioid Therapy and Chronic Non-Cancer Pain was released on May 8th, 2017 by the Michael G. DeGroote National Pain Centre at McMaster University in co-operation with Health Canada and The Canadian Medical Association Journal.

The Council of the College will be discussing its official position on these new Canadian guidelines and the new CDC (American) guidelines at its Council meeting in June.

In the meantime, Saskatchewan physicians are invited to read through the new guideline and may provide feedback to the College if desired to prp@cps.sk.ca.
