What happens when a patient’s opioid dosage is wrong? This comprehensive yet practical guidebook is a must-read for health professionals involved in pain management, hospice and palliative care. Written in a conversational tone with a splash of humor, the book covers key areas of opioid conversions unlike any other book. The textbook includes easy-to-follow case studies, charts, graphs, and real-world practice examples to give clinicians the principles they need to conduct opioid conversion calculations with confidence.

The book includes a five-step process that teaches clinicians the proper methods for doing common conversions, and case-based practice problems to strengthen understanding. One invaluable tool is the step-by-step examples for the very challenging methadone, fentanyl, PCA and neuraxial opioid therapy conversions, which help practitioners ensure they are calculating appropriate dosages – dosages that could improve or save lives.
