In response to the global opioid epidemic, Cooper University Health Care is sponsoring Provide to Prevent: Overdose Prevention and Naloxone Education, a continuing education program for pharmacists and other health care professionals from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, September 17, 2016, at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, Camden.
Pharmacists have been called by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy to promote and expand access to the opioid overdose reversal medication Naloxone. Participants will learn more about opioid abuse and misuse and discuss ways pharmacists can expand their role in naloxone education and dispensing in accordance with New Jersey law.
The program is sponsored in collaboration with Camden County Board of Freeholders Addiction Awareness Task Force, and the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy.
There is no cost to register, and free parking will be provided. To register, visit events.cooperhealth.org.
