Event Details

  • This workshop will cover the specifics of safe injecting and work with those who misuse prescription opioids. The sessions are as follows:

    - Monday 1 May 2017
    - Monday 9 October 2017.

    Participants will receive interactive and specialised training, incuding:

    - practical knowledge
    - refined skills
    - confidence to enhance safer work with prescription substance users.

    It is hoped that there will be opportunities for participants to ask questions in a safe environment. A new component of the workshop will be outline the administration of Narcan, a brand of the drug Naloxone, in a community setting.

    Participants receive a personal take-home kit containing two doses of Narcan.
    After the workshop, participants should be able to recognise and effectively intervene in an opioid overdose. Opioid overdoses are life-threatening occurrences.

    There is a fee for these workshops, and they are not Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander specific.
