Project dates: April 2015 - June 2016
The overall aim of this project was to evaluate the dissemination, acceptability and impact of two NIDA-funded online overdose prevention trainings to potential bystanders and professional first responders (police, firefighters and EMTs), nationwide. The project provided pilot data for a subsequent NIH proposal to disseminate and implement online overdose prevention training in collaboration with other states or locales throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
