The purpose of this program is to educate individuals on opioid overdose prevention by teaching attendees how to recognize an overdose, how to respond to a suspected overdose, how to administer Narcan, to provide a Narcan kit and/or N-CAP information, and related resources. This program does not constitute medical education for providers in terms of clinical certification.
