Monroe County has experienced a nearly tenfold increase in opioid-related deaths over recent years which has galvanized the community in responding to the epidemic. The county has been active in coordinated data acquisition to provide an assessment of the impact of the opioid epidemic in the region and is actively engaged in education and overdose prevention efforts. Education efforts to date have not specifically included the unique needs of older adults or their caregivers. This event will provide health professionals with up-to-date local & NYS data and services information regarding opioid use and risks in older adults.

This course is coordinated by the Institute for Innovative Education at the University of Rochester. 

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry and Monroe Community Hospital, Monroe County Department of Public Health and Lifespan. The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry designates this live activity for a maximum of 6.25 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.  Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
