NSW Clinical Guidelines: Treatment of Opioid Dependence 2018

NSW Health has developed these guidelines that seek to provide clinical guidance and policy direction for opioid treatment in NSW.

The guidelines aim to improve access to opioid treatment by:

  • Personalise patient care by introducing a system that differentiates between those who have low/moderate treatment needs and can be treated in community settings and those with complex/high treatment needs and should be referred to and treated in the specialist treatment sector
  • Support more effective coordination of care across health services.

These guidelines are intended for use in generalist health settings (for example primary care, hospital, clinic or community settings) as well as specialised drug and alcohol / opioid treatment clinics.

The Guideline can be accessed at: http://www.health.nsw.gov.au/aod/Pages/nsw-clinical-guidelines-opioid.aspx
