Strengthening Cross-sector Preparedness Collaboration for Opioid Prescription Disruptions

When:  Sep 28, 2023 from 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM (ET)

ASTHO, in partnership with CDC’s Opioid Rapid Response Program, will host an upcoming webinar to increase awareness surrounding disruptions in access to care for opioid users and the importance of preparing for and responding to these disruptions.  

This webinar will discuss the benefits of having written response protocols, how multisector partnerships improve rapid response coordination, and strategies to mitigate overdose risk, leading to the promotion of positive health outcomes for patients. Further, it will highlight the unique roles and opportunities for directors of public health preparedness programs and their teams to aid in response efforts.
