The Bridge offers free training on how to administer Naloxone as a response to the provincial overdose crisis and public health emergency. The training takes approximately one hour and our award-winning nursing staff will teach you:
- How to recognize an opioid overdose
- How to administer Naloxone in an overdose situation
- Hands-on training to properly perform the injection
- All participants will leave with a Naloxone kit and the knowledge on how to use them properly
Naloxone is a form of first aid in situations involving an opioid overdose. We strongly encourage all members of our community to be ready to deliver this life-saving medication. Evidence shows members of the public can effectively respond to opioid overdoses, as waiting for Emergency Medical Services can have fatal consequences.
If you are unable to attend a training session at The Bridge, online training is available at the Toward the Heart website.
