The Opioid Data Lab: Understanding Overdose through Scientific Innovation project focuses on methodology for polysubstance drug overdose identification and reporting. The project consists of three aims:

  • develop and maintain a publicly available up-to-date list of drug search terms mapped to principal variants and updated referent drug groups, including new psychoactive substances;

  • develop and revise a framework for reporting drug involvement in overdose deaths, building on existing tools; and

  • develop recommendations (including conceptual and operational definitions) for single drug versus polydrug-overdose death classification based on information listed on death certificates.
