en Limba Engleză Paperback – July 2009

"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. 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. "
