Description: NIDCR Clinical Research Fellowship Grand Rounds

In the United States, the number of drug overdose and opioid-involved deaths has been on the rise, with more than 50 percent of drug overdoses resulting in a death that involved opioid use. Between 2000 and 2015, more than 500,000 people died as a result of drug overdoses, and opioid overdoses are responsible for an estimated 91 deaths everyday nationwide. This presentation will focus on the epidemiology and history of the opioid overdose epidemic, the CDC’s activities to address overdoses (including the CDC’s Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain), as well as resources for dental and medical practitioners.
