New York State Pharmacists
To provide the training needed for pharmacists to comply with the standing orders for dispensing naloxone issued by the Harm Reduction Coalition and those issued by the Erie County Department of Health.
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 issued by Harm Reduction Coalition and those issued by the Erie County Department of Health.
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.
