Morphine Equivalent Dosing: Now and in the Future
eBook: Morphine equivalent dosing (MED) determines a patient’s cumulative intake of any drugs in the opioid class over 24 hours in an effort to help reduce the likelihood of overutilization. Healthcare professionals can play an important role in averting overuse and overdose by paying attention to and recognizing MED, and at times, “pressing pause” to allow for further evaluation.
