The ACSEP Board has endorsed the TGA decision to make codeine based medications prescription only from February 2018 supporting the RACP, RACGP, AMA and Pain Australia position released on 7th October.

Earlier this year the ACSEP endorsed the IOC Consensus Statement on pain management in elite athletes which will help clinicians and athletes alike take a more wholistic approach to this topical issue with the aim of improving outcomes for all.
