Program Description

Heroin and opioid overdose are the leading cause of accidental death in Pennsylvania.  In October of 2015, Governor Tom Wolf announced a statewide naloxone standing order for overdose prevention, signed by Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine.  This program will outline the components of this newly signed standing order as well as discuss best practices for implementation within the community pharmacy setting.  Proper device use will be displayed and patient/eligible person (those in a position to assist a person at risk of experiencing an opioid-related overdose) education will be discussed.


Program Objectives

1. Define the scope of the overdose epidemic in Pennsylvania
2. Recognize the signs and symptoms of opioid overdose and determine potential candidates for naloxone therapy
3. Describe the components of the Pennsylvania standing order for naloxone used for overdose prevention
4. Recommend best practices for implementation of the naloxone standing order in the community pharmacy setting
5. Display proper use of intra-nasal and intra-muscular naloxone and patient/eligible person counseling technique
