2024 OFR National Forum: Expanding Overdose Fatality Reviews to Include Suicides: Discussion and Open Forum

Publication Date: 3/13/2024

The Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) was recently awarded funds to partner with existing overdose fatality reviews (OFRs) to establish and implement suicide fatality reviews (SFRs) to identify missed opportunities for prevention and intervention among those who died by suicide and to develop and disseminate national SFR guidance, tools, and technical assistance. This session will include an overview of the project, group discussions, and a listening session. Sites that are currently reviewing suicide deaths and/or are interested in expanding their OFRs to include suicides are encouraged to attend this session to learn more about the project, share lessons learned, and ask questions about getting started.
