Nationwide Innovative Practices in EMS Post Overdose Response Survey

By Uncategorized

The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and the National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO) invite you to participate in the Nationwide Innovative Practices in EMS Post Overdose Response Survey. The information gathered through this assessment will inform a report exploring the extent to which innovative practices are being implemented, what the key barriers are, what some possible solutions might be, and how partnering with public health might benefit the work. Innovation is being defined here and throughout this survey as any program or practice that addresses a need identified at the state/local/community level but has not gone through rigorous scientific testing yet to develop the evidence-base. Participation is voluntary and reporting of the data will be in aggregate fashion.

This assessment will take approximately 10-20 minutes to complete. It is intended to quickly capture what innovations your EMS organization has implemented, barriers to implementing those innovations, and how public health organizations can best assist.

While this survey should be completed individually, please feel free to reach out to others within your organization to gather information, if necessary. Please submit any responses to this survey by Friday, November 20th, 2020.

If you have any questions about this assessment, please contact ASTHO’s Research and Evaluation Team: ResearchandEvaluation@astho.org.

Thank you for your participation in this assessment effort!
