Virtual Naloxone training
April 16, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Join us for this life-saving learning opportunity!
Partnership will be presenting Naloxone training via Zoom on April 16, a Thursday, at 1 p.m.
This brief class will teach participants how to use the nasal spray Naloxone, a drug that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.
The training will also include a history of opioids and an overview of the law that protects people who administer the reversal drug. (Attendees may remain anonymous if desired.)
Partnership recommends the class for anyone who works with or knows anyone with an addiction to opioids, which includes heroin and certain pain medications. We also recommend parents and caregivers of the elderly get trained.
Those who are prescribed opioids may also overdose accidentally. Sometimes the elderly may forget if they’ve already taken their medications. Many of the overdoses we see are not people who are abusing drugs.
