This webinar will focus on the North Carolina Medical Examiner System and the toxicology laboratory that serves the system. Included will be information on the changing landscape of death certification and changes to the laboratory approach to testing.

As the number of opioid overdoses have increased since the late 1990’s the primary agents have shifted from prescription medications such as methadone and oxycodone to heroin, fentanyl, fentanyl analogues and other opioids. The modern medical examiner system and laboratory have had to shift resources and analytical approaches in order to cope.
