Opioid Conversion Calculator

One of the daily challenges facing healthcare providers is how to safely and accurately calculate appropriate opioid doses – either for opioid-naïve patients or when switching from one agent to another. Pain experts Michael J. Brennan, MD, MS, Jeffrey Fudin, BS, PharmD, FCCP, and Ruth J. Perkins, BS, MA, PharmD, BCPS took on the momentous task of developing their “ideal” opioid conversion calculator. Based on medical evidence with an easy-to-use framework at the point of care, the result is the PPM Opioid Calculator.
