Opioids & Senior Living: How Operators Can Learn to Manage the Crisis in Their Community

Senior housing operators are facing growing pressure to address opioid use in their communities, given both the associated clinical risks and new incoming regulation. Opioid abuse among those 50 and older has nearly doubled over the past decade, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration. As state and federal lawmakers continue to ruminate over a legislative response to this crisis, senior living operators need to prepare for new regulations that could affect residents and operations.

This one hour webinar will provide operators with strategies to strengthen compliance programs, prevent prescription drug abuse and appropriately manage pain.

During this webinar, experts will discuss:
  • Data showing the scope of opioid use among the senior population
  • Responsible pain management strategies for assisted living and memory care providers
  • Overseeing the personnel administering opioids
  • Properly training providers and families on appropriate pain management
  • Navigating regulatory constraints surrounding opioid administration
  • Exploring non-pharmacological options for pain relief
