Hopkins Opioid Program

The Hopkins Opioid Conversion Program
This program is designed to facilitate the rational conversion of one opioid regimen to an approximately equianalgesic dose of another. Medical students, house officers, pharmacists, nurses, oncology fellows, and attending physicians in the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins have used this program enthusiastically for years. This version of the program was developed to meet requests to have this program more widely available.

CAUTION
The authors have strived to ensure that the information included in this program reflects the current level of knowledge regarding opioid conversions. However, information on opioid conversions is incomplete and constantly changing as additional research and clinical experience expands our knowledge base. As a result, it is the user's responsibility to examine all available information on opioid conversions and to integrate this with knowledge about his or her patient and the information provided in this software program. The ultimate responsibility for the opioid dose prescribed is that of the prescribing physician.
