This Opioid Calculator Application is a tool for the calculation of total oral Morphine Equivalent Daily Dose (oMEDD). A particular design feature of the app is that it simplifies the calculation of oMEDD in cases where combinations of opioids are used. It is designed to provide easy accessibility and consistency to facilitate research, improve education and fill a void in the availability of reference conversion data in clinical practice. This opioid calculator is produced by the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (FPM ANZCA) which is the peak body responsible for the education, training, continuing professional development and maintenance of standards of clinical practice for specialist pain medicine physicians in Australia and New Zealand.

Education and review
This application has been invaluable in my practice since it's launch. Demonstration to patients the morphine equivalent dose of their opioids and also communicating this to their primary care physician is off in numerous importance.I would recommend is to students to your doctors and specialists and indeed regulators. Five stars from me.
Credible and easy to use
From a very reputable source, this app is easy to use and a great help in having conversations with patients to educate them. Outstanding
Really helpful as a patient to understand the total amount of drug I was on. Has helped keep me focused in getting my medications under control
