The SPOT app (Safer Prescription of Opioids Tool) has been developed to support prescribers perform complex calculations when switching opioid medicines.  SPOT is an online tool that will double check your calculations, ensuring patients are quickly given the correct dosage of analgesia.

Using sophisticated algorithms, SPOT is able to simultaneously harness information that can help the development of guidelines for pain management and also monitor performance to ensure safe and effective treatment of pain.

SPOT is the only CE-marked, clinically-validated equianalgesic opioid converter in clinical practice. Currently deployed across NHS Borders, serving over 110,000 patients and clinicians, SPOT is assessed against the NHS Scotland Quality Assurance Framework for Medical Device Apps, based upon the Scottish Palliative Guidelines, and proven to improve adherence to guidelines and confidence in prescribers.
