Naloxone Information Workshop

A naloxone kit next to the City of Ottawa's logo and the words "Public Health / Santé publique"

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.

This is an English-only and hybrid program.  The presenter is remote and will be on-screen in the meeting room A of the North Gloucester Branch.

A French version of this program will be offered on April 17, 2024 from 7:00 to 7:45 p.m.

Ce programme sera offert en français le 17 avril 2024 de 19 h à 19 h 45.
