Description

This ultra concise pocket guide provides helpful information for prescribers in an easy-to-tab format. The introduction addresses practitioners' specific considerations while subsequent sections provide information on selecting and screening patients for opioid therapy. Moreover, the volume includes a special section on opioid prescription for patients who have a history of substance abuse. The author provides examples of patient opioid agreements, an algorithm for treating chronic pain with long-term opioids and information on interpretation of urine screening results. Authored by two highly experienced nurse practitioners on the frontlines of patient care, this volume uses the most up-to-date information available in order to function as a clinically focused tool for safe opioid prescribing.
