Current funding opportunities

Rapid Review of Jurisdictional Responses to Opioid Overdose

MSFHR is requesting proposals to conduct a rapid review, including a review and synthesis of the published and grey literature on how other jurisdictions have responded to opioid overdose crises, particularly those involving fentanyl and related analogues. The rapid review will focus on responses that attempt to integrate health and public safety, and on jurisdictions outside of Canada that are responding to situations similar to the current public health emergency in BC. This work is supporting BC’s Joint Task Force on Overdose Prevention and Response with an ongoing evaluation of the province’s response to the opioid overdose crisis.
