About this Event:

Presentation Summary
Opioids are commonly prescribed pharmacological intervention used to treat physical pain, and Canada is now the second highest consumer of opioids in the world. While opioids may address physical and/or indirectly psychological pain for some people, they can also be dangerous (even when taken as prescribed), and can lead to problematic opioid use, overuse, dependence, overdose, or death. This 3-part webinar series will examine opioids across the lifespan starting with the early years (maternal/prenatal), transition aged youth and lastly, older adults.
