On March 31, 2021, the Collaborative for Effective Prescription Opioid Policies (CEPOP) convened stakeholders to discuss policy approaches to expand access to naloxone. The virtual event focused on three key aspects of naloxone access: addressing prescription opportunities, promoting community-based access, and ensuring a pathway from naloxone use to treatment and recovery. Thought leaders and participants across the agency, public health, provider, and employer landscape shared their views on these topics and identified potential actions that could be taken by CEPOP and others. CEPOP developed a white paper summarizing the proceedings of the roundtable and the recommended next steps to be included in its policy and advocacy strategy.
