This webinar (58:02 minutes) given by Anita Jacobson discusses how to identify and manage older adults that are at risk for opioid-induced respiratory depression. By the end of this webinar, learners should be able to: (1) describe validated tools and practice-based methods to assess the risk for opioid-induced respiratory depression; (2) describe strategies to overcome some of the barriers to naloxone co-prescribing in the primary care setting; and (3) summarize and demonstrate essential patient/caregiver overdose education elements including proper use of naloxone.
