Partnerships for Prevention: Overdose Fatality Review 101

Event Dates
All times are Eastern Time unless noted otherwise.

Overdose fatality review (OFR) is an effective way to identify innovative community-specific overdose prevention strategies. Blending input from public health, criminal justice, public safety, providers and the community provides a deeper understanding of the missed opportunities for prevention and intervention. Identifying gaps helps drive the development of program and policy recommendations to improve coordination and collaboration between agencies and community conditions to prevention future overdose deaths.
