Brief description Increases in opioid use have been accompanied by increased opioid harms. But there is a lack of population-level evidence about drivers of long-term prescribed opioid use, dependence, overdose and other harms. Using linked data, we will fill these gaps using a cohort of all people in NSW prescribed opioids since 2002, linked to datasets containing information on health, social and health service utilisation, that will permit a comprehensive assessment of the risks of all prescribed opioids.
