Opioid Poisoning Awareness
In this workshop, participants will learn how they can help prevent
death and disability by recognizing, accessing help, and providing care for a suspected opioid poisoning.
The workshop can be delivered as a 60-minute stand-alone session or added on to an Emergency First Aid or Standard First Aid Course.
The workshop is ideal for those working in schools, recreation, and community centres, and is also suitable for those who want to support friends or loved ones and learn how to respond in an opioid poisoning situation.

• Identifying an Opioid Poisoning
• Assessment and Care for a Suspected Opioid Poisoning
There is no evaluation component. The goal of the

first aid skills and knowledge to prevent further death
and disability from opioid poisoning.
