The Integration of Opioid Use, Overdose, and Suicide: Second in a Series

This presentation will describe research on the causes of overdose and suicide related to opioids and pain, as well as interventions and policies that can be used to address both problems, which are high priorities to VA efforts to improve patient health. Objectives: 1. To describe the potential pathways between pain and opioid use with suicide and overdose, and how the two causes of death are related to one another. 2. To explain how specific intervention approaches may reduce both suicide and overdose mortality. This webinar is the second in a series on the links between opioid use, overdose and suicide.

The first webinar, The Integration of Opioid and Suicide Identification, Prevention, and Care: A National Perspective, was presented by Dr. Jane Pearson and Dr. Richard McKeon on November 4, 2019.


This event is provided as a collaborative effort between the Great Lakes ATTC, Great Lakes MHTTC, Central East ATTC, and Central East MHTTC.
