Topic: The Opioid Epidemic and Naloxone Training

The opioid epidemic has hit every corner of the nation, including Minnesota. With over 400 lethal overdoses in 2017 alone, we can all play an important role in reducing the death toll. The presentation will cover the laws surrounding the use of Naloxone and Steve’s law, Minnesota good Samaritan law, and will include a Naloxone training. Each attendee will leave with the skills and tools to save a life. Learning objectives:

  • Understanding how Naloxone is distributed in Minnesota, including the laws that allow for distribution by non-pharmacists;
  • How Steve’s Law protects persons with substance use disorders in emergency situations; and
  • How and when to administer Naloxone in an emergency.
