AHRQ publishes notice for new program to manage opioid use in older adults

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) recently published a notice in the Federal Register announcing their intention to request that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approve the proposed project titled “Identifying and Testing Strategies for Management of Opioid Use and Misuse in Older Adults in Primary Care Practices.” As described in the notice, the goal of the project is to assess and describe the current prevalence, awareness, and management of opioid use, misuse, and addiction in older adults, and identify gaps and areas of needed research. The project will also support primary care practices in developing and testing innovative strategies and approaches for opioid management in older adults. Comments on the notice must be received within 60 days of publication of the proposal.
