Maria O Leary and Sharon Reams will be providing training in Naloxone on Monday 31st August at 11am. This will be followed by a question and answers session.

The aim of the training is to enable workers to diagnose and treat suspected opioid overdose and to supply and administer Naloxone in emergency situations competently and safely.
It is advised that only those workers who have successfully completed the training on CPR may undertake the Diagnosis and Treatment of Suspected Narcotic (i.e. Opioid) Overdose and the Supply and Administration of Naloxone Programme.
The training will also cover new guidelines that have been advised due to COVID-19 coronovirus.
For the purposes of this online training the naloxone preparation Prenoxad(r) will be demonstrated. This demonstration of its administration comply with the Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC) for this product. This means that Prenoxad(r) will be given by intramuscular injection in accordance with the SmPC. In the future other products may be considered.
PLEASE NOTE: A short in-person training will be made available to those who complete the virtual part of this training when conditions allow. Only when both parts are complete will certification for the course be made available.

WRDATF is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
