Healthcare Policies to Reduce Overdose and Other Drug-related Harm


June 27, 2024 | 12 – 1:00 p.m. CT

The Network for Public Health Law’s Harm Reduction Legal Project, in collaboration with ChangeLab Solutions, is hosting a series of four webinars funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to introduce two forthcoming resources that policy decision makers can use to support their work to advance policies to reduce overdose and other drug-related harm.

Each webinar will introduce the resources: Preventing Overdose & Reducing Drug-Related Harm: A Policy Guide for State and Local Change and Implementing State and Local Overdose Prevention Policies: A Resource for Navigating the Policy Process. The individual webinars will additionally provide specific information on policies most relevant to one of four sectors: community, criminal/legal, healthcare, and schools (K-12).

In this session – focused on the healthcare sector – a guest speaker will discuss their experience implementing harm reduction policies, including strategies and challenges, and answer questions from attendees.

The webinars are intended for policy decision makers, public health practitioners, and community members to attend the one most closely related to their specific policy area of interest, but all will be beneficial to any individual wanting to make a positive change in the lives of people who use drugs and their communities. 

By attending this webinar, you will:

  • Learn how to use two new resources to support policy strategy
  • Delve deeper into the specifics of implementation best practices
  • Hear from a speaker with experience in implementing new harm reduction policies in the criminal/legal sector
