    An overdose is a life-threatening medical emergency. Naloxone is a life-saving medication that can temporarily reverse the effects of an opioid overdose, while waiting for 911 to arrive. Being able to recognize the signs of an overdose quickly and having a naloxone kit can save a life.  

    Join Ottawa Public Health nurses for this 30-minute virtual information and training session on how to identify and respond to an overdose, including how to administer Naloxone, followed by a 15-minute Q&A. Information on how to obtain a free kit will be provided as part of this presentation.  

    Tuesday April 2, 1:00-1:45 pm (Eng)

    Wednesday April 17, 6:00-6:45 pm (Eng)

    Une surdose est une urgence médicale qui met la vie en danger. La naloxone est un médicament qui sauve la vie et qui peut temporairement inverser les effets d'une surdose d'opioïdes, en attendant l'arrivée du 911. Savoir reconnaître rapidement les signes d'une surdose et avoir une trousse de naloxone peut sauver une vie.   

    Joignez-vous aux infirmières de Santé publique Ottawa pour cette session virtuelle d'information et de formation de 30 minutes sur la façon d'identifier et de réagir à une surdose, y compris sur la façon d'administrer la Naloxone, suivie d'une période de questions de 15 minutes.
