TMG staff and doctors recognise that drugs of dependence have an important therapeutic role in pain management.
TMG has a dedicated S8 clinical review panel. Decisions on treatment plans for patients taking these medications will be made by the panel in conjunction with the treating Doctor.
RACGP recommendations for prescribing drugs of dependence in General Practice cover Acute pain, chronic pain, ongoing therapy, assessment and monitoring and strategies for discontinuing opioids in general practice.
Drugs of dependence will not be prescribed to patients new to the clinic. Patients must have a detailed history uploaded to their clinical file and must enter into a drugs of dependence therapy agreement (contract).
GPs who had previously prescribed may no longer be willing to continue a treating relationship, and they are not compelled to do so.
The practice or individual clinic team members have the right to refuse to treat patients in defined circumstances and it is up to the individual Doctors discretion whether or not to prescribe.
