The American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT) is delighted to announce that it has been awarded with a Eugene Washington Patient Engagement Grant from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). Titled "Confronting the Overdose Epidemic by Engaging Patients to Improve Medical Toxicology Research," this project aims to develop a connection between patients and medical toxicology researchers to advance patient-centered outcomes research on intentional overdoses. The award offers a series of virtual activities that bring together patients who have personally experienced intentional overdoses and welcomes participation from all medical toxicology researchers.
All activities are held at 1:00-2:00 PM ET on their respective dates.

About the Project
Spanning five activities, this project kicks off on October 11th and 13th when medical toxicology researchers will embark on a comprehensive two-part Town Hall Research Training led by the Patient Engagement Studio, equipping them with the skills to effectively engage patients in research development, design, and dissemination. Then, on October 26th and November 29th, Interactive Sessions 1 & 2 will convene patients, stakeholders, and interested medical toxicology researchers. During these sessions, research priorities for medical toxicology research on intentional overdoses will be established, followed by the development of an engagement strategy guide for medical toxicology researchers. The final culmination of this groundbreaking project will take place on January 31, 2024 with a Follow-Up Meeting, which will serve as a platform to discuss the future of intentional overdose research in the field of medical toxicology. With a particular focus on strategies for sustainability, this session will delve into the crucial aspect of maintaining patient engagement throughout the entire research process.
This award underscores ACMT's unwavering commitment to patient engagement and our dedication to enhancing the field of medical toxicology through collaborative research initiatives. Through collective efforts, ACMT and the project participants aim to create a lasting impact on intentional overdose research, ultimately leading to improved patient-centered outcomes and a brighter future for those affected by this critical public health issue.
