Naloxone Training

Naloxone TrainingPlease join us for coffee, pastries and a free naloxone training conducted by MetroHealth's Project DAWN (Deaths Avoided with Naloxone). The goal of this training is to educate our Playhouse Square District neighbors, professionals and community members on naloxone, how to properly use it, and where to access it. 

What is naloxone?

Naloxone (also known as Narcan) is a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. Check out The Northeast Ohio Hospital Opioid Consortium's Naloxone Toolkit to learn more.

Attendees will receive training on the following:
  • Recognizing the signs and symptoms of overdose
  • Distinguishing between different types of overdose
  • Performing rescue breathing
  • Calling emergency medical services
  • Administering intranasal Naloxone

Naloxone gives people a chance to survive. YOU can save a life with naloxone. Learn about it. Carry it. Advocate for it.

One naloxone kit per organization will be distributed. We encourage you to pass this invitation along to others who may be interested in attending.
