2021 Virtual National Forum
Overdose Fatality Review

Building Momentum

Although the 2021 Virtual National Forum on Overdose Fatality Review has adjourned, you can still view the agenda, information about the presenters, resources, and recordings of sessions in this archival section.

Overdose Fatality Reviews (OFRs) involve a series of confidential individual death reviews by a multidisciplinary team to effectively identify system gaps and innovative, community-specific overdose prevention and intervention strategies.

The 2021 Virtual National Forum on Overdose Fatality Review, held in February 2021, offered a mix of general interest plenary panel discussions, guided virtual discussions, and café sessions for informal, small-group meetings. The forum was applicable to participants at all levels of expertise.

About the Forum

This forum was a collegial chance for those who participate in, lead, support, or are interested in OFR to convene and discuss the benefits (and challenges) of this initiative. Participants were able to connect directly with colleagues from different backgrounds to discuss relevant issues and trends, share ideas, exchange resources, and gain new skills to improve programs.
