This session will address “The Fourth Wave” of the opioid epidemic, including recent data on rising mortality due to fentanyl alone and in combination with methamphetamine. The rise of polysubstance use, including the use of the so called “goofball,” has implications for morbidity and mortality and raises the complexity of treatment. Treatment options, including use of medications, will be discussed. The session will also cover harm reduction strategies including naloxone, drug surveillance, and drug checking. This session will also include training on how to use fentanyl test strips, as part of a comprehensive public health and harm reduction strategy. Fentanyl test strips are a practical and effective tool for people who use drugs as means to encourage overdose risk education and reduce risk of death. Training will include discussion on distribution, limitations, sourcing, messaging amongst other considerations in the application and administration of use.
