Understanding the Opioid Crisis Case-by-Case: Overdose Fatality Reviews in Wisconsin

 

Mallory O’Brien, Assistant Professor, Medical College of Wisconsin, discusses the Wisconsin’s Overdose Fatality Review process, a joint effort of the State Departments of Justice and Public Health, that brings together all of the stakeholders to share specific case information to understand the overdose, the events leading up to it, and what opportunities the can uncover for actions that can be taken to address the overall crisis.

Dr. O’Brien participated in the panel “Opioids and the Law Enforcement Response: Partnerships for Public Safety and Improved Outcomes,” presented by the National Institute of Justice at the 2018 International Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference. This video was filmed following the panel.
