‘Opioid drugs are prescribed for acute and chronic paid of moderate or severe intensity arising from both malignant and non-malignant disease.’ The enclosed article published by Australian Prescriber in April 2014 provides good information on the different opioids , how they work, combinations and concerns. It is an interesting article and worth a read!
Why do we exist?
The Nursing CPD Institute (previously known as the Nurses Nurses Network) was created by Nurses, for Nurses.
We exist to help our Nursing colleagues to meet their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) annual registration standard requirement, with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.
We specialise in gathering information about Nursing and Health Care from a variety of sources to present CPD, both On-Line via our website and On-Tour on our Travel CPD events.
