Thanks for your interest in the Clinical Trial of Digital Support For People With Chronic Pain Who Are Reducing Prescription Opioids.

This randomised controlled trial aims to test whether digitally delivered support can benefit patients with chronic pain who wish to reduce their opioid dose. People with chronic pain who have started or are going to start to reduce their opioid dose under the supervision of their doctor can join this study from anywhere in Australia where they have access to a phone network and the internet. 

Patients are randomly assigned to two groups and will receive a digital intervention providing education, motivation, and emotional support. The intervention is designed to be delivered alongside usual care, not in place of usual care. The study is approved by the NSLHD Ethics committee [2022/ETH01795].

We would greatly appreciate your support for this trial. You can help by placing flyers of our study (provided here) in your practice waiting room so that patients who are interested in reducing their opioid medication use can be informed about this study.
