A book written by clinicians for clinicians that presents a broad view
of the clinical applications of opioids; it covers the pharmacology
of opioids and its clinical application in a wide range of situations
from acute to chronic cancer and non-cancer pain across ages from
paediatric to geriatric populations.
It also covers the socio-historical, ethical, legal and criminal aspects
related to the use of opioids, and includes the limitations of opioids
as well as recommended precautionary measures when prescribing
these drugs. For the busy clinician who has to manage pain either
as a generalist or a specialist, this is a very handy text to keep within

30 of us gathered at the function room of a member’s residence condominium. The number was just right. Everyone is a contributor/sponsor . We thank everyone for the food contribution and participation. Never mind if you are not bringing food. Let your presence brighten up the atmosphere and that's also a great contribution.
We started from 11 am. Those who arrived early helped in the set up of the food table and decoration, as well as sit down for a good time to know one another. As the food arrived gradually, we were all ready to toss the special DIY lo hei salad. All of us were so excited that we forgot to take a group photo with our creative dish. When the olive oil was poured, all of us started to shout “lo-ah, huat-ah”! Wow, wow, wow! We cleaned up every shred on the plate as well as those fell on the table. I think this is the best lo hei salad I made. Of course, last year’s was also very delicious. Every year we improve on it.
After lunch, we had a Get To Know You session. After every NPC talk, we stay back and talk and talk and talk, never ending. So this is the chance. We have ample time for sharing - on secret recipe, damage recovery program, heartwarming stories, etc.
Take a look at the menu. I can tell you, these home-cooked food is even better than 5-star restaurants. Kudos to all our NPC celebrity chefs!
