    The Data & Research work group focuses on issues relating to the identification, collection, and communication of data and research regarding prescription drug misuse and abuse in Colorado.

    The Data & Research work group’s goals for 2017-18 are to:

    • Increase the availability and accurate dissemination of indicators related to the health effects of prescription and illicit opioid use in Colorado, such as overdose;
    • Provide data and research consultation for the Consortium’s individual work groups and the Consortium as a whole;
    • Provide a network in which Consortium members can present and elicit feedback from data and research experts on surveillance, program evaluation, preventive strategies, and research.

    The Data & Research work group meets every month (in person and by remote conferencing), with occasional exceptions. The current work group roster, most recent meeting minutes, and upcoming meeting schedule are available on the left-hand side of this page.
