Webinar replay: industry-specific outreach and education for reducing overdose deaths

This webinar was held on October 25, 2022. 

Industry stakeholders are non-traditional partners who can be effective in supporting and expanding opioid overdose prevention efforts. During this webinar, attendees heard about one state’s experience using data to identify and target stakeholders in high-risk industries, including construction and food services. We shared a framework for industry-specific prevention efforts—including use of data; identification of key partners; engagement strategies, and education; stigma reduction, and harm reduction activities—that other locales can adapt and integrate into their overall opioid prevention and response strategies. In addition, we identified possible funding opportunities to support this type of effort.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn about effective ways to build non-traditional, industry-specific partnerships to support communities to reduce overdose deaths.
  • Understand how data can help target and engage stakeholders in outreach, education, stigma reduction, and harm reduction.
  • Obtain concrete examples of industry-specific engagement and education activities that have been impactful in the restaurant and construction industries.
