Addressing alcohol use in over 50’s

Webinar summary

26 June 2019

People aged 50 years + have generally used alcohol and other drugs at higher rates than previous generations. Many will continue to do so in older age and this is associated with greater risk of harm. This webinar goes over the prevalence of alcohol use problems in older Australians and assists you in identifying older patients with alcohol use disorder (AUD). We also discuss what can be done in general practice to address the needs of older people with AUD, and go over the available referral pathways for at risk patients.
