Developing and implementing a strategic plan for increasing the quality of, access to, and uptake of opioid surveillance data by tribal communities to monitor this ongoing public health issue and support an informed response.
Great Plains Tribal Epidemiology Center was funded by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) through our Tribal Epidemiology Centers Public Health Infrastructure (TEC-PHI) program to pursue a set of new and expanded surveillance activities to support opioid overdose prevention in the Great Plains Area.
The project includes four key components:
- Partnering with tribes and key stakeholders to improve opioid surveillance;
- Assessing data related to racial classification across data systems;
- Improving non-fatal overdose data collection; and,
- Improving fatal overdose data collection.
Updates coming soon!
Opioid Data Inventory (ODI)
The purpose of the Opioid Data Inventory project is to research, identify, and assemble population-based opioid-related data sources for the benefit of Great Plains Area tribes, organizations, programs, and partners. The ODI is a collection of opioid-related data sources that includes descriptive information for each data source, its contents, and opioid indicators.
