HSAG to Offer Two Conferences Focusing on California’s Opioid Crisis

LeadingAge California is pleased to partner with the Health Services Advisory Group (HSAG) to offer two full-day conferences dealing with the impact and implications of the use of opioid medications in senior living and care settings.

The Medicare population has among the highest and fastest growing rates of diagnosed opioid use disorders. At these two conferences, attendees will:

  • Analyze the opioid-use-disorder disease process, its natural course, and how treatment alters it.
  • Explore the national and California landscapes of the opioid crisis.
  • Identify challenges and misconceptions regarding opioid use and treatment.
  • Discover interventions, resources, and clinical practices to improve person-centered care.
  • Share success stories and reinforce continued efforts to find solutions.
