Naloxone (NARCAN) & Opioid Overdose Training

Mar. 27 @ 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

The Naloxone (NARCAN) and Opioid Overdose Training course will teach you how to recognize the signs of an opioid overdoese and administer the opioid overdose reversal drug Naloxone (NARCAN).

Naloxone is a medicine that rapidly reverses an opioid overdose and is proven to be safe, effective, and easy to use.

CU Denver’s Public Health Response and Emergency Management Division are collaborating to share with you the information and resources needed to reduce harm caused by opioids. This will not only benefit our students, faculty, and staff, but also our friends, families and campus visitors.

In this 1.5-hour free training we aim to:

  • Help you understand the opioid crisis
  • Inform you what opioids are
  • Spread awareness about harm reduction
  • Provide information about Naloxone and campus resources
  • Demonstrate how to recognize an overdose and how to safe a life using Naloxone

We hope that you will leave this class with the knowledge and resources to help fight the opioid epidemic.

*Please be advised that by attending this training you are NOT obligated to use naloxone in case of an emergency. At a minimum, this course can show you what a typical overdose looks like, misinformation about those who use drugs or opioids, and when to call 911.
