Poll finds support for prescribing limits, and need for better counseling and disposal options
July 2018 Report: Older Adults' Experiences with Opioid Prescriptions
A national sample of adults age 50–80 about their use of opioids for pain management, the education they received, how they disposed of unused medications, and perceptions of current and proposed policies related to opioid disposal and prescribing.
By tapping into the perspectives of adults, older adults, and caregivers from throughout the United States, we are bringing the public’s voice to matters that affect the health and well-being of older adults and their families.
