Naloxone Training Session

Did you know that as of September 2018, 

  • there were more than 8,000 apparent opioid-related deaths between January 2016 and March 2018 (3,005 in 2016 and 3,996 in 2017)

  • most accidental apparent opioid-related deaths involved fentanyl or fentanyl analogues (73%)

  • the number of accidental apparent opioid-related deaths involving fentanyl or fentanyl analogues increased by 16% compared to the same time frame in 2017, and doubled compared to the same time frame in 2016

As evidenced by this data, the opioid crisis continues to grow.  As nursing students, health promotion and harm reduction are guiding principles of our practice.  

In the interest of promoting harm reduction and enhancing nursing student education, the CNSC will be hosting a Naloxone Training Session on  Monday November 19 from 6-7pm as part of Nursing Student Week.

Registration for this event filled up quickly last year, so if you are interested in attending this event, send an email to camosunnursing2017@gmail.com with your name, program (BSN or LPN), year and section number before November 12. 

We are asking that participants bring a small, new or gently used item for donation.  We will provide a list of possible donation items with your confirmation email.
