AHRQ Funding Opportunity: Opioids and Opioid Use Disorder in Older Adults
AHRQ has a funding opportunity available to improve the management of opioid use, misuse, and opioid use disorder in older adults in primary care.
This initiative aims to develop, implement, evaluate, and disseminate strategies that will allow primary care practices to optimize pain management in their older adult patients; to prescribe and monitor appropriate opioid use to minimize adverse events and addiction risk; and to identify and treat opioid use disorder. These strategies should build on evidence-based guidelines and, where possible, tested tools.
