Offered by the Injury Prevention Research Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the IPOP is an opportunity for injury and violence prevention practitioners and their partners to learn information and skills for strategically influencing policies, environments, and systems to prevent and reduce injury and violence. This 1.5 hour self-study is Part 2 and focuses on solutions and strategies for preventing and reducing opioid overdose.
