My Opioid Manager (MyOM Book)
A reference for users
This reference book, developed by the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, describes, in chapters, the different types of pain, the types and actions of opioids, how to use them and, in the appendices, the different aspects of pain, its impact on daily life and the risk of overdose associated with opioid use. With its many diagrams and tables, this book is a useful tool for discussion between physician and patient. My Opioid Manager is also available as a mobile app, My Opioid Manager (MyOM) App.
