ABOUT THE PUBLIC WORKSHOP

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) is announcing the following public workshop entitled ‘‘Morphine Milligram Equivalents: Current Applications and Knowledge Gaps, Research Opportunities, and Future Directions.’’ The purpose of the workshop is to bring stakeholders together to discuss the scientific basis of morphine milligram equivalents (MMEs) with the goals of providing an understanding of the science and data underlying existing MME calculations for opioid analgesics, discussing the gaps in these data, and discussing future directions to refine and improve the scientific basis of MME applications.

REGISTRATION

The public workshop will be held virtually and via webcast on June 7 and 8, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time each day. Please provide complete contact information for each attendee, including name, title, affiliation, address, email, and telephone. Registration is free.

REQUEST FOR ORAL PRESENTATIONS

During online registration you may indicate if you wish to present during the public comment session. Submit a brief statement of the topic you wish to address and the names and addresses of proposed participants. We will do our best to accommodate requests to make public comments. Individuals and organizations with common interests are urged to consolidate or coordinate their presentations and request time for a joint presentation.

All requests to make oral presentations must be received by May 24, 2021. We will determine the amount of time allotted to each presenter and the approximate time each oral presentation is to begin and will select and notify participants by May 31, 2021. Time allotted for each presentation may be limited. If the number of registrants requesting to speak is greater than can be reasonably accommodated during the scheduled public comment session, FDA may conduct a lottery to determine the speakers for the scheduled public comment session.

If selected for presentation, any presentation materials must be emailed to Kimberly Compton (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT) no later than June 3, 2021. No commercial or promotional material will be permitted to be presented or distributed at the public workshop.
