Opioid Use - Clinical Guidelines

The purpose of these clinical guidelines is to highlight the issues facing older adults with, or at risk for, an Opioid Use Disorder (OUD), and to provide recommendations for the prevention, screening, assessment, and treatment of an OUD in adults 65 years and older.

CCSMH developed a best-practice clinical guideline on opioid use disorder among older adults to support health care professionals provide their clients with evidence-based information and best practices.
