Crisis and Hope: Trends, Risk Assessment, and Innovation in Overcoming Overdose (webinar)

Michael and Desi Hite

The risk of fatal overdose has changed significantly in recent years, most notably with the emergence of the illicit opioid fentanyl and the increasing prevalence of polypharmacy.

In this webinar, presenters Michael Hite, MBA and Desislav Hite, MD discussed trends and patterns in overdose cases over the last 5 years, factors that can increase overdose risk including identifiable life events and mental health co-occurring conditions, and how different populations are affected across Region 10. They also discussed actionable interventions to enhance overdose safety including new medical devices and digital resources, harm reduction strategies, and collaboration with local community organizations.
