I-18 - Train the trainer: Empowering your community to combat the opioid crisis
Timely administration of naloxone has saved thousands of lives. While physicians and other health and safety professionals receive training in overdose detection and naloxone administration, laypeople do not. As a physician or physician in training, you can reduce the number of lives claimed by opioid overdose by training local community members how to identify an opioid overdose and administer naloxone to reverse the effects. Join the AMA-MSS to learn how you can reverse the epidemic. If you have any questions, please contact us at 800-621-8335. This session has been planned and implemented by the AMA’s Medical Student Section. Please contact Keith Voogd at keith.voogd@ama-assn.org if you have any questions.
