Naloxone Training for Caregivers Workshop

This 2-hour hands-on and informative workshop for caregivers who might encounter needles or potential overdoses on the street- save a life!

Caregivers and parents: you are the eyes on the street!

You are typically walking strollers and toddlers in the early morning hours or in public spaces, and have likely come across needles or someone who in unconscious. This is your chance to learn what to do when you encounter needles or potential overdoses on the street. This may just save a life!

The opioid crisis has brought to light the devastating effects opioids are having on individuals, families and communities across Canada. Research shows that the opioid crisis continues to grow and that 94% of opioid overdose deaths happen by accident. In addition, young Canadians aged 15 to 24 are the fastest-growing population requiring hospital care from opioid overdoses. (Stats from the College of BC Pharmacists)

This Naloxone training workshop is being offered free to participants as part of our 2022 Family Place New West in-person workshop series. It is not a certificate course, but is invaluable for parents, caregivers and members of the community to protect our families. Come and learn with us!

What to bring: Participants will want to come prepared to learn. They will be given handouts and their own Naloxone kit to take home. Note that adults will be required to wear masks in this workshop.

Instructor: Kristina Selby-Brown, of the Purpose Society’s Mobile Harm Reduction Unit, FTIR Spectrometer Drug Checking Technician.
