    • Overview

      In the wake of the opioid epidemic, it is imperative that practitioners understand and feel confident in performing opioid conversion calculations. Despite this necessity, most practitioners actually feel very uncomfortable or even ill-equipped to perform these calculations. Through this crash-course of frequently-performed mistakes, practitioners will learn to avoid pitfalls and strengthen their knowledge to improve patient outcomes (and avoid potential tragedy).
