Registration Open for Tabletop Exercise on Opioid Outbreak Response

The ongoing opioid epidemic puts Tennessee at high-risk for experiencing an outbreak of fatal or nonfatal overdoses. In this scenario-based interdisciplinary exercise, your community will identify and respond to an increase in opioid-related overdoses by communicating with key partners and determining roles and responsibilities.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Apply outbreak response methods to opioid overdoses
  • Communicate with key community partners involved in an opioid overdose outbreak response
