Johns Hopkins: Injury Center Faculty Launch New MOOC on Opioid Epidemic

Dr. Shannon Frattaroli and colleagues from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health recently launched a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on the opioid epidemic on the online learning platform Coursera. The course, “Opioid Epidemic: From Evidence to Impact,” features 10 online modules that provide learners with evidence-based and actionable solutions to curbing the epidemic at the local, state, and national level.

The course curriculum builds off the 2017 report “The Opioid Epidemic: From Evidence to Impact” prepared by the Bloomberg School and the Clinton Health Matters Initiative with input from a team of national experts. Learners can enroll at any time and complete coursework at their own pace.

Dr. Frattaroli, the course’s lead instructor, is associate professor in the Bloomberg School’s department of health policy and management and core faculty in the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy, for which substance use prevention is a priority focus area. The Center is one of nine Injury Control Research Centers funded by the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Enrollment is ongoing.
