    Exactly Ben. Pain management whether it is acute, chronic or persistent requires follow up. and review. On discharge the review should happen relativfely quickly and then a tapering plan should be put in place as other pain relief mechanisms come into play e.g. physio, exercise, rehab. We must give enough cover to ensure the patient can undertake the program that has been designed for them. a signed agreement on how to manage the tapering of the opioid gives the GP a place to revisit and review.
