Pharmacists in all practice settings
Opioid abuse is currently an epidemic in both New York State and the United States as a whole. Mortality from opioid-related overdoses is also increasing. Expanding access to naloxone for use in opioid-related overdoses is one method meant to decrease mortality from these overdoses. Pharmacists can now dispense naloxone using a non-patient specific prescription (standing order). This continuing education program will provide the training needed for pharmacists to comply with the standing orders for dispensing naloxone.
This program contains a pre-test, naloxone education presentation, educational reference material, post-test, and program evaluation. Credit will be awarded upon successful completion of the post-test activity with a score of 70% or better.
