Realize, React, and Reverse: Emergency Naloxone Administration in the Community

Date: June 15, 2016 — June 15, 2018

Opioids are a class of medications used in moderate to severe pain. When used appropriately, they can provide pain relief and restore quality of life. However, diversion and over-prescribing of opioids has caused many Americans to become addicted and accidentally overdose. The opioid overdose reversal drug called naloxone was initially only used in hospitals, but it has recently become more widely available even to laypeople in various states thanks to new legislation. This continuing education activity was developed to educate pharmacists and technicians about how to recognize if a person is experiencing an overdose and the agent used as an antidote, but also how to use professional judgment and supportive reinforcement to prevent their patients from taking too many opioids.
