Chronic pain is very common presenting symptom affecting one in five Australians in general population and most of these patients are managed in out-patient setting and mostly by general practitioners. Further in last couple of years use of Narcotic Analgesics has increased exponentially and death due to "Overdose of Prescribed Narcotics" is one of the MOST IMPORTANT TOPIC in LAST TWO YEARS. I, being a Geriatrician, a Specialist General Physician, an Ex-A/Professor in Medicine and post-graduate (M.D. in Pharmacology), am in better position for presentation on this critically important issue.Learning outcomes
