Naloxone - why YOU should be prescribing before Christmas

Presented by  Associate Professor Nicholas Lintzeris

This webinar will give you the information, the confidence and the tools to start prescribing now.
Background to extended distribution of naloxone including historical, international and national context, as well as legal/prescribing issues. 
Naloxone is a well-known and long used medication to reverse effects of opiates in the event of overdose. Yet Australia lags in making this life saving drug more widely available. While scheduling change may be one longer term option, we must not let this further delay extended availability.
