Opioid Overdose Prevention

Published by UT School of Nursing


School nurses lack of knowledge of naloxone availability for treatment of overdose in adolescents/preadolescents. There is also a need for improved recognition of narcotic use/overdose in school settings. Some institutions, including universities and high schools, have begun stocking naloxone rescue kits for opioid overdose response. This practice is likely to become more common in the near future due to an increase in opioid overdose rates and enhanced naloxone availability via state-level regulations and donations from drug manufacturers. This presentation will educated school nurses in the methods to assess for opioid use and the proper responses, including the use of the naloxone kit in the school setting.
