Opioids: What Seniors Need to Know

Monday, September 30, 2019

The opioid epidemic is a growing concern in the U.S. and all ages, including older adults, are feeling the impact. Geriatric misuse of opioids has quintupled over the last 20 years. While it is common for older adults to experience chronic pain, special consideration should be given when prescribing opioids to older patients.

An SCL Health Pharmacist will share about the impact of opioid use on older adults and ways older adults can more effectively manage their medication. Register by 9/26.
