THE ROLE OF PHARMACISTS IN ADDRESSING NEW JERSEY'S OPIOID CRISIS

ENDURING RECORDED COURSE: Registration now open
Time of Enduring Recorded Course: One hour

This is the second of six modules of a live webinar and enduring recorded course series that will use a standardized, evidence-based opioid addiction prevention curriculum to train and inform pharmacists on best practices in opioid dispensing, counseling patients and caregivers, opioid storage and disposal, and halting abuse and diversion.

All participants who register for and complete this course will receive access to the New Jersey Opioid Medical Education Program Naloxone Distribution and Training Programs Guide. This comprehensive county-by-county guide, available in interactive and print formats for health care professional reference and patient education, includes pharmacies who dispense NARCAN® (naloxone hydrochloride) Nasal Spray and the recent FDA-approved generic naloxone hydrochloride nasal spray (utilizing standing orders, and via prescription). It also includes virtual trainings in the era of COVID–19 on how and when to use naloxone nasal spray.
