Franklin County OD2A Project, Year Three-Extension Evaluation Report

September 27, 2023

Franklin County Public Health (FCPH), in cooperation with many local and regional partners, received the Overdose Data to Action (OD2A) award from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2019. Initially, this was structured to be a three-year initiative; however, because of delays related to the COVID-19 pandemic, CDC extended the OD2A award an additional year, Year 3 Extension (YR3-EXT). This grant promotes systems change and community-wide collaboration to engage in surveillance and prevention of opioid abuse and opioid deaths. Ohio University’s (OU) Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Service participated in the development of the evaluation plan in the original proposal and has continued to serve as the external evaluator for this four-year effort. This report documents the fourth and final year of project implementation and overall successes and achievements throughout the duration of the grant. Due to time constraints, data collection was only conducted in the first three quarters of YR3-EXT. This report covers a robust collaboration of programming and data sharing and collection among 9 project partners for this year, and 12 across the 4 years of the project. It selectively focuses on the specific initiatives supported through OD2A funding, and does not cover the wider array of services and programming each agency engages in to reduce opioid overdoses and improve the health and wellbeing of individuals across Franklin County.

Wilder Collaboration Factors Inventory

To track collaboration strengths, growth, and potential areas needing attention within the Franklin County Overdose Data to Action (OD2A) grant collaborative, project partners, including Franklin County Public Health (FCPH), completed the Wilder Collaboration Factors Inventory along with nine OD2A specific statements in the first, second, third, and fourth and final year of the OD2A project. The inventory does not aim to provide total collaboration scores; instead, it offers descriptive factor scores that collaborative groups can use as "starting points for discussion" and markers of functioning. Although yearly changes are visible, the most crucial aspect when interpreting these data is whether the factor scores indicate a strength (greater than 4) or an area that may need attention (between 3-3.99). The following sections describe the methodology used, discuss the Wilder Collaboration Factors Inventory and OD2A-specific statements results by project year, and provide a brief conclusion.
