When pain management becomes a big issue

Do you suffer from ongoing pain?

In this episode we talk about pain management and opioid pain medications.

Many Australians have been prescribed these types of medications for a long period of time — but recent regulatory changes mean the rules have changed. There are now smaller pack sizes, for starters.

And your doctor now may recommend something else for your ongoing or chronic pain.

In Ask the Doc we find out why these changes have been made and ask ‘what now?’ for people who are impacted.

This episode of the podcast features the first of 3 interviews on this important topic.
