Pharmacist use: I love it!
I am a pharmacist and I’ve been using this app everyday in my practice to determine the correct therapy of opioid use. Both patients and providers need a lot of advice. This app helps empower me to give them the correct information.
Exactly what Prescribers Need
This app is designed perfectly to help make prescribers make informed decisions on patient pain management. It fits the meat of the guideline into a pocket-sized resource that allows clinicians to make decisions TOGETHER with the patient. The features are great (MME calculator), and it's easy to use.
