Opioid Wars: The Conversion Strikes Back

Inappropriate dosing of opioid pain medications has led to numerous overdoses and at times death in both the inpatient and outpatient setting.  In practice, several health care providers can be unaware of key concepts, conversion factors and appropriate dosing strategies for these high risk medications. Many people fear opioid conversions due to a lack of understanding and, at times, difficult math behind each solution.  However, it does not have to be this way. The aim of this program is to simplify the complex and convoluted world of opioid conversions regardless of practice setting in an effort to improve patient safety.

Target Audience: All pharmacists with routine interaction or questions of opioid pain medications

CE Credit: 1.5 hours

Presenter: Thomas Franko, PharmD, BCACP, Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice, Wilkes University Nesbitt School of Pharmacy
