Registration for the safe use of opioids collaborative

The Commission has now established an expert faculty to advise the collaborative on potential interventions to reduce harm. The faculty will guide the development of interventions and measures for quality improvement. Faculty members include palliative care specialists, pain practitioners, anaesthetists, medication safety and quality improvement specialists.

The Commission is holding four regional teleconferences with district health board (DHB) staff this month to discuss the collaborative which is due to start in October 2014. Further information and an invitation to learning session zero will be sent out soon.

Registration details: We are in the process of developing an electronic register for participants to register in the safe use of opioids collaborative programme – dates and further information will be made available shortly.
