Summary:

 

The Canadian Coalition for Seniors Mental Health (CCSMH) has been funded through the Substance Use and Addictions Program (SUAP) of Health Canada to create a set of four guidelines on the prevention, assessment, and management of substance use disorders among older adults for alcohol, benzodiazepine receptor agonists (BZRAs), cannabis, and opioids.

 

Cannabis use among older Canadians has received increased public interest since its legalization in the fall of 2018. Older Adults are beginning to ask more about cannabis in the setting of recreational and therapeutic use. As younger individuals grow older, the prevalence of cannabis use disorders in older adults may also increase. Those seeking to start using cannabis and/or those currently using cannabis therapeutically are now looking for information and clinical guidance.

 

Join us for this session to learn about the upcoming release of the Canadian Guidelines detailing the evidence and best practice recommendations for the prevention, assessment and treatment of cannabis use disorder among older adults.
