Pain Management: Opioid Substitution and Delivery Route Change Mobile App
The Pain Management: Opioid Substitution and Delivery Route Change mobile app provides procedures concerning the management of pain for people who have a progressive life-limiting illness where death is the expected outcome.
How does it work?
The challenge in palliative care is to optimize comfort and function against a background of eventual but inevitable deterioration and death. Although there is much common ground, chronic non-malignant or acute pain are not covered by the app. This app includes a checklist focused on Opioid Substitution and Delivery Route Change. These issues are usually managed by dedicated specialized acute and chronic pain teams. Where there is a suspicion that the level of opioids could be contributing to pain through opioid induced hyperalgesia, opioid substitution or a change of route could reduce the opioid load and change the metabolites the body has to deal with.
