How pharmacists can help prevent an ‘opioid crisis’ developing in the UK


I note that amendments have been made to the original article which correct the equivalent doses of oral Tapentadol and transdermal Buprenorphine at 80mg and 70mg of oral Morphine, respectively. Should there also be a correction for Codeine? How can 60mg of Codeine be equivalent to 10mg Morphine, and 240mg of Codeine be equivalent to 20mg Morphine?
