    CDC guideline for prescribing opioids for chronic pain : dosing and titration of opioids / Deborah Dowell -- Dosing and titration of opioids / Jane Ballantyne, Mark Sullivan

    Evidence indicates that the risk for opioid-use disorder and overdose increases as dosage increases. CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain provides recommendations about the types of opioid formulations at initiation, starting dosages, morphine milligram equivalent dosage calculation methods, dose titrating considerations, and tapering methods. During this COCA Call, clinicians will learn about the association between opioid dosage and opioid therapy benefits and harms. In addition, presenters will use a case study of a patient with severe back pain on oxycodone to guide clinicians through safe opioid prescribing practices.

    This is the fourth webinar in a COCA Call series about CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain.
