Opioid Outbreak Response Tabletop Exercise – Knoxville
June 13 @ 9:00 am - 3:15 pm
The ongoing opioid epidemic puts Tennessee at high-risk for experiencing an outbreak of fatal or nonfatal overdoses.

Participants will learn how to:
- Apply outbreak response methods to opioid overdoses
- Communicate with key community partners involved in an opioid overdose outbreak response
- Describe surveillance sources and stakeholders involved in identifying and responding to opioid overdoses
- Identify roles and responsibilities for community partners during an opioid overdose outbreak
