Addiction Policy Forum Webinar: Opioid Overdose Reduction Continuum of Care Approach – Strategies to Reduce Overdose Fatalities
February 2 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Please join for a webinar on February 2, 2024, at 3 p.m. ET on strategies to reduce overdose fatalities from the Opioid-Overdose Reduction Continuum of Care Approach (ORCCA).
Developed through the HEALing Communities Study, the ORCCA framework can help communities implement system- and practice-level changes to reduce opioid overdose deaths. The HEALing Communities Study, a multi-site research study, tested the impact of an integrated set of evidence-based practices across healthcare, behavioral health, justice, and other community-based settings. HEALing Communities is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Helping to End Addiction Long-term (HEAL) Initiative®.
Speakers will provide an overview of the 19 essential evidence-based interventions in ORCCA designed to reduce opioid overdose deaths and highlight how communities in Ohio, Massachusetts, Kentucky and New York implemented ORCCA. The science and evidence behind the framework were published in the Journal of Drug and Alcohol Dependence and outlined 19 essential evidence-based interventions to reduce opioid overdose deaths.
This webinar is sponsored by HEAL Connections, an initiative funded by the NIH HEAL Initiative.
