More and more people are being poisoned by opioids. We need all hands on deck to turn that around. Learn how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose, including how to administer naloxone, a life-saving medication that can help temporarily reverse an opioid overdose. We will also cover concepts that impact opioid use, related harms, and the scope of opioid-related issues within the Canadian and local context. Participants will receive further information and resources on how to apply what they learn in various settings. This training is offered free-of-charge and is open to frontline workers, service providers, and staff. Course offered on August 19 and September 13 from 9:30 a.m. - 12 p.m and October 24 from 1:30 - 4 p.m.
