- CDC's 2018 Annual Surveillance Report of Drug-Related Risks and Outcomes 9/5/2018 11:22:00 AMThis second annual surveillance report includes data on national opioid prescribing patterns, drug use/misuse, treatment, hospitalizations, emergency department visits, and overdose deaths. Key findings show that between 1999 and 2016, more than 630,000 people died from a drug overdose in the United States, and drug overdose deaths in 2016 reached a new record high. The crisis continues to be fueled by both prescription opioid pain medications and illicit drugs, such as heroin and synthetic opioids, and a low percentage of those needing treatment for substance abuse are able to access it. In addition to expanding treatment options and access, additional measures are needed to prevent illicit drug use and prescription drug misuse in a dynamic drug landscape.

- CDC Resources to Help Clinicians Reduce Falls and Avert Costs 8/28/2018 9:00:00 AMA recent study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine (AJPM), The Potential to Reduce Falls and Avert Costs by Clinically Managing Fall Risk, found that clinically identifying and managing fall risk factors could prevent as many as 45,164 medically treated falls and avert up to $442 million in direct medical costs annually. The report looked at the population-level impact of seven evidence-based interventions on reducing falls and lowering direct medical costs among community-dwelling older adults. CDC's Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths, and Injuries, or STEADI initiative, has tools and resources to help clinicians prevent falls and reduce healthcare costs.
- Texting/Emailing While Driving Among High School Students in 35 States, United States, 20158/21/2018 9:00:00 AMThis journal article explores individual- and state-level factors associated with texting while driving among teen drivers in the United States. The findings show that texting while driving among high school students varies widely across states (26%-64%). States that issue learners' permits to teens who are less than 15 years old had a higher percentage of high school students who text or email while driving. This research can help target prevention efforts and underscores the need for strategies to reduce texting while driving in teen drivers, particularly in states where adolescents begin driving at younger ages.
