The Commission is seeking input from consumers, carers, clinicians, academics, colleges, societies and associations and other stakeholders in the health care sector to inform the development of a National opioid analgesic stewardship program for the Emergency Department and perioperative settings. The Commission is consulting with stakeholders around Australia until 28 May 2021.

This survey should be completed after reading the discussion paper for public consultation on a National Opioid Analgesic Stewardship Program.  

You will be asked four key questions throughout this document, which focusses on opioid analgesic use in the Emergency Department, opioid analgesic use in perioperative and surgical settings and education and training for prescribers of opioid analgesics.

If you have any questions about this survey or the discussion paper please contact Steve Waller or Kylie Mitchell, Senior Project Officers at the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care: Steve.Waller@safetyandquality.gov.au or  Kylie.Mitchell@safetyandquality.gov.au.
