Preventing Opioid Overdose Mortality in the United States

Study Description

Preventing Opioid Overdose Mortality in the United States

This study aims to generate knowledge regarding the process of implementing naloxone within syringe service programs (SSPs), and to test whether external facilitation can improve implementation of naloxone within SSPs throughout the country. Together, these efforts can improve access to naloxone for people at high risk of overdose, thereby improving our nation's response to the opioid overdose epidemic.

Behavioral - Implementation Manual with External Facilitation Intervention

Participating organizations will receive the implementation manual and the external facilitation (EF) intervention. The manual provides instructions for organizations wanting to implement a high quality naloxone program. The EF will assist syringe service programs to integrate naloxone delivery within their organization. As part of these efforts, we will use a measurement framework to understand naloxone delivery within SSPs along the four phases of the implementation process—exploration, prep ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org
