Opioids: Engaging in Solutions, Responding and Beyond
The Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) was developed by the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (W/B HIDTA) which is a program administered through the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). In 2017, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported over 70,000 drug overdose deaths in the United States. Unfortunately, there is still a lack of a consistent methodology to track overdoses, both fatal and non-fatal, in real time, across jurisdictions, which is necessary to mobilize a public health and safety response capable of addressing these issues within communities. This session will explain ODAMP and why local fire departments must be connected through their CAD data.
