Session Details: Community Paramedics Saving Drug Overdose Patients

Colerain Township, OH has a Quick Response Team (QRT) that has been very successful in referring drug-overdose patients to substance abuse counseling. Violet Township, OH has a Project Hope with similar successes. The University of Cincinnati is sharing these best practices on March 16, 2017 in its Community Paramedicine course. http://ceas.uc.edu/content/dam/aero/docs/fire/CP%20Residency.pdf

We seek to expand this program throughout Ohio and elsewhere, by seeking grants for “pilot programs.”
