What is changing with the Telus PSS update?

 

The latest release of Telus PSS (version 5.18) will now automatically calculate the morphine milligram equivalent (MME) score for patients who are currently taking an opioid medication.

What is the difference between MEQ and MME?

 

If you're familiar with our Opioid Management Toolkit, you may be wondering what the difference is between the tool's ability to calculate morphine equivalent (MEQ) vs. the update from Telus PS Suite that now includes the calculations of MME.

 

The MME and MEQ both provide equivalent information to the end user. The two terms can therefore be used interchangeably as they offer the same information output.
