Understanding Opioids: Methods for Prevention & Response

Understanding Opioids: Methods for Prevention & Response

Level One Partner Workshop With PPH

Drug poisoning rates have been consistently increasing in our community and across the country. We can all play a role in turning this crisis around.

In this course, you will learn how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose/poisoning by administering naloxone, a life-saving medication that can temporarily reverse an opioid overdose/poisoning. We will discuss the history of opioid-related issues within the Canadian context, the harms associated with opioid use, and the impact these have on the current drug poisoning crisis. Whether you are a working professional or an interested community member, this session will help you gain knowledge and skills that can be applied in a variety of settings.
