Data to Action Through Public Health and Public Safety Partnerships: OFR and PHAST

Publication Date: 3/3/2023

Multisector coordination and data sharing is critical to implementing effective community drug overdose prevention programs. Both case-level data and aggregate-level data should be used to get a deeper understanding of missed opportunities for preventing an overdose death and to see patterns across systems. The Public Health and Safety Team (PHAST) Framework and Overdose Fatality Review (OFR) A Practitioner’s Guide to Implementation are two interrelated resources that communities can use to establish multidisciplinary teams, facilitate data sharing, and develop and implement effective programs to prevent overdose.

This webinar will discuss the value of multidisciplinary approaches to prevent overdose and walk through an example of how case reviews and aggregate data reviews can contribute to developing a program to serve individuals recently released from jail.
