Opioid Webinar Series Part 6: Creating Effective Health and Law Enforcement Partnerships to Combat Opioid Epidemic
This is the sixth webinar in a series about addressing the opioid crisis in America.
June 5, 2019, 1 to 2 p.m. EDT- Multi-sector collaboration is a key strategy for reversing the upward trend in opioid-related deaths, and there are tremendous opportunities to develop solutions through health and law enforcement partnerships. Historically, these sectors held divergent viewpoints and practices to best address opioid use. But today, successful collaborations involving health and public safety leaders are emerging across the country in response to the opioid crisis.
During this webinar, experts from HMA and the New York City Police Department will explore key elements in a multi-sector approach to address opioid use, built on a foundation of shared ownership of policies, system response, and programmatic interventions.
