First Responders - Bridging Response in Evidence-based Facilitation of services for people who use opioids
In response to the opioid crisis, the Center for Applied Behavioral Health Policy is developing a smart phone application (app) for use with community members who engage with first responders in emergent overdose-related situations. This project is community-inspired with the goal of becoming more responsive to pressing community needs related to the opioid epidemic.
With this exploratory/developmental study, we will:
- Determine community stakeholder needs related to opioid overdose
- Develop smartphone-based application called “First Resource,” which will provide First Responders with easily accessible, evidence-based facilitation of services for people who use opioids.
- Pilot test the “First Resource” app.
