2024 OFR National Forum: Embedding Lived Experience in an Overdose Fatality Review: Guidance and Facilitated Discussion

Publication Date: 3/13/2024

Intentionally including individuals with lived experience allows for a more complete understanding of what effective community change can and should look like. People with lived experience (PWLE) bring a unique and necessary perspective, humanize the data, and reduce stigma associated with substance use disorder. PWLE can safely participate in and bring valuable insights into all aspects of the overdose fatality review (OFR) process. This session will provide recommendations and guidance on how to meaningfully involve persons with lived experience of substance use in the OFR process.
