The Covid-19 situation has made it difficult to carry out KUPP visits by traveling around to the GP offices. We therefore now offer virtual visits by video.
KUPP canceled all visits when Norway closed down in March. Because of the Covid-19 situation, we still consider it inappropriate to offer physical visits for the time being. We have therefore developed an opportunity to conduct visits via video platforms.
The campaign Better use of opioids for chronic, non-malignant pain was launched in the autumn of 2019. To date, approximately 1,000 of the country’s 4,500 GPs have received visits with this campaign. We will now be able to offer visits to GPs all over the country through video technology. GPs have had a sharp increase in the number of video consultations this year, and we believe that this means that the GPs are prepared to carry out such visits on video.
The visits are as previously estimated to take 20-30 minutes. We have the opportunity to conduct video visits on various technological platforms. GPs who want a visit can contact KUPP in their health region via this page.
