Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians
Pennsylvania is in the midst of an opioid epidemic. Ten Pennsylvanians die every day due to an opioid/heroin overdose. With figures for 2016 expected to be worse than 2015, the state is turning to health care providers for help. As pharmacy providers, we are equipped with the opportunity to dispense the lifesaving medication naloxone. This program will provide an overview of the current state of the opioid epidemic in Pennsylvania and provide you with the tools needed to properly respond to an overdose scene and to provide top level patient education on the topic.
1. Discuss the impact of opioid overdose in society
2. Describe naloxone acquisition and legal issues around its use
3. Recognize the signs and symptoms of opioid overdose
4. Discuss the potential adverse effects of naloxone administration
5. Describe appropriate management of a(n) witnessed and unwitnessed opioid overdose
6. Discuss methods to decrease the potential for opioid overdose
