Webinar: Overdose monitoring and response for Ontario

This webinar will demonstrate 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.
