Case review provides an interesting lens through which to better understand causes of death and unique trends, and to determine innovative ways to prevent future similar deaths. To address a heightening overdose crisis, Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene led efforts to apply the process of case review to drug and alcohol overdose deaths through the formation of multidisciplinary teams coordinated by local health departments. The webinar will focus on the origin of the program,implementation process, and notable outcomes. It will also include perspective from the Cecil county team coordinator.
