WSHA webinar June 18: ‘Navigating Opioid Potency: Unraveling the Impact of Morphine Milligram Equivalent’

June 4, 2024

Join WSHA from 10-11 a.m. June 18 for an informative webinar exploring the world of pain management and recognizing the significance of the morphine milligram equivalent (MME), a crucial metric that standardizes the comparison of opioid potency to morphine. This session will empower prescribers to make safer, more effective decisions in pain management by assessing the total effect of opioid prescriptions. Register here.

Learn how MME aids in evaluating the cumulative impact of opioids, how to facilitate safe regimen changes and identify patient tolerance. Discover how it’s instrumental in monitoring opioid use trends, informing prescribing practices and enhancing patient care. While MME is not a direct measure of opioid-related risks, like sedation or respiratory depression, it complements clinical judgment in opioid prescribing, enabling clinicians to better manage pain while mitigating the risks associated with opioid therapies.
