Join the 20th US Surgeon General, Acting CDC Director, a CDC subject matter expert, and other clinical and public health professionals for a webinar discussing new data and coordinated efforts by clinicians, public health government, and communities to respond to increasing opioid overdose emergency department visits. This combined webinar joins these two audiences together to provide a discussion on how clinicians and public health communities can work together in coordinating a more robust response to the opioid overdose epidemic. The nonmedical use of prescription opioids and illicit opioids causes significant morbidity in the United States. The latest data indicate that rates of overdoses treated in emergency departments are rising across all regions and require a coordinated response between public health, clinicians, public safety, and community organizations. During this call, clinicians and public health practitioners will learn about the increases in opioid-related morbidity and steps they can take together to reverse these trends.
