Learning Objectives

This activity is designed to advance solutions that connect the often-fragmented response to the opioid crisis from the criminal justice, public safety, health care, and public health sectors. By challenging conventional approaches and creating structured meeting tools, these multiple sectors will be able to identify policy, research, and program gaps and strategies—building efficiencies, focusing efforts and creating streamlined treatment and prevention efforts that are holistic and systemic. It is necessary to advance a preventative and systems focus to identify best practice models or national replication and create a roadmap to address policy, program and training options to end the cycle of opioid use and deaths.
