***About the Speaker***

Dr. Bratberg is well acquainted with the challenges community pharmacists and pharmacies face regarding opioid dispensing, safety, overdose, and addiction. In 2012, Dr. Bratberg, along with a URI student pharmacist, co-developed an overdose education and naloxone training program for pharmacists in the first-in-nation statewide Collaborative Pharmacy Practice Agreement for naloxone. He is an unpaid consultant for http://prescribetoprevent.org and http://prevent-protect.org, websites devoted to opioid overdose education and naloxone training for health professionals and community groups, respectively. In 2015, he was selected to serve as a member of the RI Governor’s Overdose Prevention and Intervention Task Force. He is a consultant or co-investigator on federal grants from NIDA, CDC, and AHRQ. Finally, Dr. Bratberg is the guest editor of the first ever special issue on Opioid Safety and Naloxone of the Journal of the American Pharmacists Association (Mar/April 2017).
