dc.description.abstractThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data indicates 115 Americans die each day from an opioid overdose. Further, the CDC states that from 1999-2016, more than 350,000 Americans have died from an overdose involving any opioid, including prescription and illicit opioids. As alarming as these numbers are, they would likely be 2-3 times higher except for a simple and safe intervention that can be administered by anyone who has some basic knowledge and a brief training. This session will show you how it is possible to effectively recognize and respond to an opioid overdose and successfully administer naloxone, the opioid overdose antidote. Distributing naloxone to laypersons has resulted in thousands of overdose reversals and many saved lives. This webinar will provide a live demonstration of how to administer naloxone, and discuss where you can acquire this life-saving drug . Learning Objectives: Recognize the signs of an opioid overdose Learn the 5 simple steps that can help save a life – including how to administer Naloxone Learn what Naloxone is, how it works and where you can get it Understand the Good Samaritan laws that protect you as it it pertains to administering Naloxone
