Have you ever wondered if you calculated your patient’s dosage correctly? Against a backdrop of the growing scrutiny of appropriate dosages, this textbook takes a fresh, new approach to helping health professionals strengthen care to and possibly save the lives of patients living with pain. This easy-to-understand and often humorous book is the most comprehensive to-date on opioid calculations for pain management and palliative care. It carefully walks clinicians through a five-step process for performing opioid conversion calculations in the real-world situations they often see. The book has case examples, simple charts and tables, and practice problems throughout on topics such as:· difficult conversions for methadone, fentanyl, PCA, and neuraxial opioid therapy· conversions between routes and dosage formulations of the same opioids and different opioids· titrating opioid dosages up and down to include dosage change and timing· calculating doses for rescue opioid therapy Written by pain management expert Dr. Mary Lynn McPherson, the book gives helpful tips that practitioners should incorporate into their practices. It is a must for clinicians at all levels: hospice and palliative care physicians, physician’s assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists. Clinicians will come away with more confidence in doing the calculations, and higher service levels from the improvement in care.

According to the American Cancer Society, more than 1.6 million people will be diagnosed with cancer during this year. Outcomes have steadily risen over the last several decades with the advent of newer therapies. As outcomes have improved, more and more cancer patients are developing critical illness. In the not-too-distant past, patients with active malignancy were thought not appropriate for critical care services as decreased longevity related to the cancer suggested poor prognosis for intensive care utilization. More recently, evidence supports rapid activation of critical care services leading to improved outcomes in cancer patients. Moreover, just as sub-subspecialty critical care experience in trauma and neurosciences has proved beneficial, the emerging field of oncology critical care warrants specific attention.
