Drug-related deaths: anticipating, preventing and responding

Duration: two modules – online

7th October 2020 2.00pm – 3.45pm

8th October 2020 10.00am – 11.45am

About the course: This isn’t a First Aid or a Naloxone course. It looks at how to identify who is most at risk of drug-related death, how to reduce this risk – to reduce the risk of overdoses happening not just responding to overdoses once they’ve happened.

The course also looks at identifying and responding to critical incidents in relation to opiates and other drugs, and dealing with the aftermath of near misses and fatalities.

The course covers:

  • Trends in drug deaths
  • Opiates – mechanism of death
  • Key risk factors for opiate users
  • Screening for risk factors
  • Identifying and responding to opiate overdoses
  • Other drugs: stimulants, steroids, NPS, solvents – risks and death reduction

 

Who should attend: Everyone working with ongoing drug use especially opiate users
