ABSTRACT

Data collection in opioid deaths is not uniform: the Centers for Disease Control, state departments of health, and local departments of health all utilize differing monitoring, classification, and analysis techniques. In order to compare and analyze the data, it is necessary to standardize data collection. This session will discuss the need for a unified approach to data collection and monitoring at the national, state, and local levels, to ensure that the data provided can be utilized effectively.
