Older Adults and Opiods

| Free

Event Navigation

The opioid epidemic is an issue of growing concern in the United States. Its impact can be felt by all age groups, including older adults.  According to the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project, over the past twenty years, the hospitalization rate for geriatric misuse of opioids has quintupled. While it is common for older adults to experience chronic pain, special consideration should be given when prescribing opioids to elderly patients.

Pharmacist Kyle Decker of Simple Meds will join as a guest speaker to share more about the impact of opioid use on older adults. Register for this month’s webinar to learn more about the opioid epidemic and to learn about ways older adults can more effectively manage their medication.
