    2018 Annual Conference: The Opioid Crisis: Supporting County Medical Examiners’ and Coroners' Offices

    The opioid epidemic has reached historic proportions with 175 Americans dying from overdose every day—opioid deaths now make up over half of all drug-related deaths in the country. Medical examiners and coroner’s offices, which are responsible for investigating and performing autopsies for drug-related deaths, have experienced a shortage in forensic pathologists leading to a decline in the standard of work of opioid and other drug-related autopsies across the country. In this workshop, speakers will discuss the challenges facing county medical examiners and coroners with the influx of cases due to the opioid epidemic and identify solutions to address the dire shortage of county-based forensic pathologists to meet these challenges.
