Toronto Metro: B.C. team offers online Naloxone tutorial to help prevent overdose deaths

I feel kind of weird linking to this. But it seems foolish not to. If it can help save one person, then why not? Toronto Metro: B.C. team offers online Naloxone tutorial to help prevent overdose deaths. “People can now learn how to administer Naloxone, the antidote to opioid overdose, by watching a five-minute video online. St. Paul’s emergency medical team led the project and launched the online tutorial this month in an effort to help more people access the life-saving drug. At the end of the tutorial, participants receive a certificate that they can show at a nearby pharmacy, or any Naloxone dispensing site, to receive a free kit.” I’m not sure you can get a free kit in the United States. But I am sure that the more people know about effectively administering Naloxone the better.
