Naloxone TrainingNaloxone Helps Save Lives.
Reasons for the opioid epidemic are complex. But, a simple fact, is that we can all help to save a life of a family member we love or a complete stranger. Opioid overdose has impacted all of us on a personal or professional level. We can do our part to know how to administer naloxone. We all have a moral obligation to be prepared to administer naloxone in the event of an overdose.
Our goal in offering this video is to prepare anyone who wants to save a life. Watching this video will help you feel comfortable with administering naloxone in an emergency. The risk of being unprepared in the event of an opioid overdose can result in loss of life. The risk of giving naloxone when it may not be needed with an unresponsive individual is negligible. This 20-minute training provides an overview of the signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose, three different administration techniques and Good Samaritan Laws in North Dakota and South Dakota.
After completing the training video, a QR code/link is provided to access a Naloxone Training Knowledge Check. A Certificate of Completion will be provided once the Knowledge Check is submitted. Thanks for taking the time to learn more about how Naloxone can save lives. Contact a member of our Great Plains QIN Team for assistance or more information.
