Video | MAARC Virtual Workshop on Spatial Dimensions of Opioid Risk Environments


Introduction to Spatial Analysis for Opioid Environments

This workshop will introduce participants to the Opioid Environment Policy Scan (OEPS), a database to help characterize the multi-dimensional risk environment impacting opioid use in justice populations at multiple spatial scales across the United States. We will provide an overview of the OEPS and risk environment model, introduce key concepts in spatial data analysis, and generate simple maps.
