FOR THE PUBLIC
Seeking information about opioids, methadone, and/or cannabis for medical purposes?
- Physicians have new rules to meet for prescribing opioids and other high-risk drugs. Learn more here
- Be a partner in your own safe care: Opioid Safety for Patients with Acute Pain and Opioid Safety for Patients with Chronic Pain
- Talk to your family physician about these types of medications for your medical condition. The College cannot provide a list of physicians who prescribe specific medications.
The College believes physicians should be responsible advocates for their patients. Through our Code of Ethics, Code of Conduct and Standards of Practice, we have consistently advised our members they have a right and a responsibility to do what is best for their patients, and sometimes that means acting on their behalf.
