Fighting the Good Fight: How to Convert Opioids Just Right!


In this interactive case-based session, the audience will learn the intricacies of converting between different opioids, including between routes and different agents.  Considerations about agent selection, dosing, as well as nuances of clinical practice will be discussed. Case-based learning will be used to illustrate conversion concepts and will offer many opportunities to practice!
