Sharing Session - 60 Minutes
Can social autopsy data untangle the complexities of opioid addiction in a community? This session will discuss the development of an Overdose Fatality Review Program specifically how to get diverse stakeholders to collaborate in the community to conduct social autopsies on overdose decedents. Further, the session will discuss how that data can identify programmatic fissures in public systems and social services that, if strengthened, could prevent future deaths. Through the identification of these missed opportunities in the system of care, and subsequent development of targeted prevention, treatment, and recovery strategies, combined with recommendations on policies and laws, this program’s long term goal is the prevention of overdose death.
