Objectives

Although step-2 analgesics (S2A) are recommended when step-1 analgesics (S1A) are ineffective or in cases of moderate to severe pain, their efficacy varies. This study evaluated the place attributed by general practitioners (GPs) to S2A in the treatment of nociceptive pain in elderly persons (EP).
