Overdose monitoring and response for Ontario: Webinar recording

On June 8th, 2017, EENet presented a webinar about two new advances in overdose monitoring.  This webinar demonstrated the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) and the Interactive Opioid Tool.
The ODMAP is a remarkably simple tool that offers real-time overdose monitoring.  It relies on first responders to report overdose occurrences.
The Interactive Opioid Tool is a new tool from Public Health Ontario that allows users to explore the most recent opioid-related morbidity and mortality data including emergency department visits, hospitalizations and deaths.

  • Karin Hohenadel, Manager and Epidemiologist, Public Health Ontario.
  • Michael Parkinson, Community Engagement Coordinator and Drugs Strategy Specialist, Waterloo Region Crime Prevention Council.
