Brief Summary: The opioid consumption has exploded in the western world 1, and for some patient populations such as obese patients, patients with sleep apnoea or patients undergoing cancer treatment, opioid-sparing/ opioid-free strategies could have positive effects on outcomes. Studies suggest that opioids could have opioid-induced immunosuppression, induce chronic post-operative pain syndrome and hyperalgesia in addition to the more well-known side effects such as respiratory depression, nausea, bladder, and bowel dysfunction. Hence, new studies are needed on the impact of person-centered care programs that combine pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical strategies to reduce the adverse short and long-term effects of opioid therapy.
