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

Lifeline > The Revival Connection Support Group
The Revival Connection (TRC) aims to provide knowledge, psychological and emotional support to patients with advanced and recurrent cancer and their caregivers through organised activities, talks, mutal support and sharing of experiences.
Inspired by a handful of patients who had attended our EnReach Retreat and STEER programmes and wanted 'something more', TRC was birthed on 30 April 2005. This vibrant support group for persons surviving recurrence cancers is the first of its kind in the world and currently has a membership size of more than 80.
Led by the Principal Medical Social Worker, Ms Jacinta Phoon, the members unite on their motto 'Where there's life, there's hope' and strive to live life to the fullest despite of the future uncertainties. The members keep in regular close contact with one another. A number of them also take on roles as mentors, providing practical support and cheer to those undergoing treatment.
