Opioid Webinar Series Part 2: Successful Prevention Strategies to Address the Opioid Crises
March 1, 2019, 1 to 2 p.m. EDT– This is the second webinar in a series about addressing the opioid crisis in America.
State and local governments – backed by an infusion of federal dollars – are beginning to develop and implement a wide variety of prevention strategies to address the opioid epidemic. And several states are already showing positive initial results. Among the early lessons is that success depends on a coordinated approach to prevention; partnerships among government agencies, law enforcement, and providers are critical; and opportunities to positively impact results exist at every level of the prevention spectrum.
During this webinar, HMA public health and prevention experts will provide case studies of innovative and effective opioid misuse and overdose prevention initiatives. Speakers will also outline the key components of an effective opioid prevention strategy, including an understanding of the key drivers of success.
