This report describes two new guidelines for general practitioners (GPs), aimed at improving prescribing for pain associated with migraine and low back pain, which have been distributed recently in NSW. Both guidelines were prepared by the NSW Therapeutic Assessment Group (NSW TAG), with a grant from the NSW Department of Health, in response to a need for better information on the prescribing of opioids.
