About the Webinar: Pharmacists are an emerging group of clinicians working to prevent opioid overdose death. As the most accessible healthcare provider, pharmacists are ideal partners to identify patients at risk of opioid overdose and furnish naloxone to them as part of a comprehensive intervention to recognize overdose, call 911, perform rescue breathing, administer naloxone, and stay with the patient. In many states, pharmacists can partner with prescribers in collaborative practice agreements (CPA) and initiate naloxone prescriptions under a prescribers’ authority. Several states permit prescriptions for naloxone to be written for caregivers of patients at risk of overdose.
