Full course description
Naloxone: Opioid Overdose, Prevention, Recognition & Response:
Drug overdose is the leading cause of injury death in the United States, causing more deaths than motor vehicle crashes. The CDC attributes the rise in drug overdose deaths to a higher use of prescription opioid painkillers.
Providing overdose prevention, recognition, and response education to those who have been prescribed opioids, drug users, their families, and their neighbors is a harm reduction intervention that saves lives.
Heroin and other opioid overdoses are particularly amenable to intervention because risk factors are well understood and there is a safe antidote - NALOXONE.
