As more attention is being paid to the opioid crisis in Canada, various responses have been launched in an attempt to curb some of these alarming trends. However, older adults have been largely left out of the conversation. With this report, the National Institute on Ageing (NIA) aims to raise awareness of the serious risks to older adults related to the opioid crisis, and to explain why this group will require particular attention in order to stem the crisis.
