The McGill Better Opioid Prescribing (MBOP) initiative and its collaborators are conducting a survey to assess international patterns of analgesia prescribing after colorectal resection.
If you are a surgeon or trainee who conducts elective colorectal resections, please click on this link to complete the survey: https://mcgill.ca/x/ov4
Why is this survey important? The overprescription of opioids affects surgical patients in many countries leading to high rates of dependence and overdose. As analgesic prescribing practices seem to vary internationally, the results of this study will help guide care and future research to optimize postoperative pain management, particularly in countries where opioids are overprescribed.
If you have already responded the survey, please do not respond again to avoid duplicate data.
