Older adults are twice
as likely as the general population to have pain, and clinicians often
rely on opioid treatment to address that pain. As a result, opioid use,
misuse, and opioid use disorder have increased among older adults, who
are vulnerable to adverse reactions. Working with the Agency for
Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), we’re collecting needed
information to help providers improve pain management for older adults.
