Description

Opioid overdose is a serious public health issue in Toronto and Canada. In 2015, 253 people died from overdose in Toronto, and from 2015 to 2016, the number of opioid toxicity deaths increased by 33%.

This training is provided by Toronto Public Health's harm reduction program, The Works, and aims to provide opioid overdose education to Toronto Public Service and community organizations.

Participants will learn from experienced harm reduction workers overdose prevention strategies, how to monitor their service settings for overdose, and how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose, including how to administer naloxone.

*Naloxone kits will not be provided at this training. Organizations must purchase naloxone for their first aid kits.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If there are fewer than 10 registrants the training will be cancelled and you will be notified on or before the Friday prior to the training date.
