The Center for Forensic Science Research & Education is offering a three-module series on investigation and certification of drug related deaths in Fall 2021. The series is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI). Registration is FREE, and seats are limited.
This series of learning modules has been designed to complement existing resources for drug related death investigation, toxicological interpretation, and death certificate completion, as well as an overview of how medical examiner and coroner data is used for public health surveillance purposes.
Each module will include a summary/application section covering background and introduction, key concepts, and practical lessons-learned including casework experience examples.
The content will be provided by a roster of experts in death scene investigation, forensic pathology, and forensic toxicology, drawn from leading coroner and medical examiner offices and forensic laboratories across the United States.
