Event description

Description

Overdose Education & Naloxone Distribution (OEND) directly to people who use drugs is an evidence-based practice that reduces fatal opioid overdoses. In this 3-hour training, attendees will:

  • Learn the context for why overdose prevention is of growing concern and what is known about overdose education and naloxone distribution programs.

  • Learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of a drug overdose and how to respond to an overdose situation with naloxone, the medication that reverses opioid overdose.

  • Learn what steps to take following an overdose and overdose prevention counseling tips when working to support people who use drugs (PWUD).

Attendees will practice communicating this information back to colleagues, community members, and program participants. We will also address the key components of operating an OEND, address common barriers, learn how to develop an organizational policy, and discuss important next steps in establishing an OEND in accordance with Illinois law.
