In light of all these new restrictions on opiods, I have been asked some good questions by colleagues. Some were asked by patients some were asked themselves. Comment below with your answers or other thought provoking questions you have received.

Alternatively if you would like to remain anonymous you can email
[email protected] and I will gladly post your questions for you.

1.) Does the use of Narcan on a terminal cancer patient violate a DNR?

2.) How do you calculate daily MME for fentanyl patches? Does it change if patient is using every 2 days instead of every 3?

Hello IPhA Membership,

Speaking of chronic pain, I have been asked by a local State Representative to provide an opioid and cannabis Q&A in a community setting. I see APhA has some opioid education resources, but I am wondering if anyone has insight into what we should expect at an event like this. Do the attendees want a power point presentation, or handouts? I want to make sure we make good use of our 60-90 minutes to present! Feel free to reply to this thread, or email me directly at [email protected]. The event is Oct 26th, so I have a little time still to research.

Thank you so much, Laura
