How to Use NARCAN® Online Training
Pennsylvania has been experiencing the worst overdose crisis in recent history. Thanks to a grant by the PA Department of Drugs and Alcohol Programs, the College is providing a number of services and measures to prevent and reduce the use and misuse of opioids by college students. A series of hands-on training sessions are being offered to community members who are interested in learning how to administer NARCAN® to someone who has overdosed.
In this 60-minute online session, participants will learn how to:
• Recognize the signs and symptoms of an opioid emergency or overdose.
• Take appropriate and decisive action.
• Appropriately administer the NARCAN® (naloxone) nasal spray.
• Promptly notify Emergency Medical Services.
There are not any sessions currently scheduled.
