ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses aspects of the new Canadian guidelines for the use of opioids in treating chronic nonncancer pain. He is critical of the guidelines as only three of its 24 recommendations were based on randomized controlled trials with the 19 others were based partially or solely on consensus opinion. Moreover, he calls for further research that will address several issues related to the treatment such as risks, comparative effectiveness and effectiveness.
