The Centers of Disease Control (CDC) reports that drug overdose, mainly due to the increase in non-medical use of prescription pain-relief drugs, is the second leading cause of deaths from unintentional injuries in the United States.

In an effort to reverse this trend on Long Island, the Opioid Overdose Prevention Program
trains participants how to recognize an overdose, administer intranasal Narcan and take appropriate steps until EMR arrives. Participants will receive certification as Trained Overdose Responders, an emergency resuscitation kit that includes two does of Narcan.
THIS TRAINING MEETS NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH REQUIREMENTS

Objectives:

  1. Identify a patient who has taken an overdose of an Opioid
  2. Exposure to advanced airway tools
  3. Training in the delivery of nasal Narcan
