The Pharmacist's Role in Preventing Opioid Overdoses

Dial-in Webinar

This Virtual Coffee Break webinar will discuss the various roles that pharmacists can play in preventing opioid overdoses. This includes naloxone education and dispensing through the Minnesota Opiate Antagonist Protocol, controlled substance disposal and Minnesota's Syringe Access Initiative. Professor Blue and colleague, Laura Palombi, PharmD have been actively surveying Minnesota pharmacists about the roles they currently and plan to play with regard to the naloxone protocol. You’ll hear the latest about this effort and be able to map a plan for your effort after this webinar.
