Operation Naloxone: Opioid Overdose Prevention & Response Training


Opioid Overdose Prevention & Response Training 
2.5 CE Hour • FREE • 4 part Video Series • 4 post tests • 1 overall evaluation 

PLEASE NOTE:  CE credits are not available after May 1, 2020.

Operation Naloxone is an interprofessional collaboration from faculty and students at The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy, School of Social Work, and Texas Overdose Naloxone Initiative. We provide overdose prevention and response education to students, health professionals, and the public to combat the opioid epidemic.  

This application-based CPE course reviews up-to-date information regarding opioid overdose trends, prescribing and dispensing of naloxone, how to responde to an acute opioid overdose, review on how to administer naloxone via currently available products and processes, cultural awareness around opioid use and misuse, information on addiction and reasons for use, as well as information on reduction of harm.

This course is divided into 5 short 30 minute videos, each with its own documents and post-tests.  Each video course serves as a prerequisite to the latter courses, so you are to work through them in order. 

This course was made possible through a grant from the Texas Department of State Health Services.
