Starting new naloxone programs: 2 new how-to guides from Europe

Two great new resources out this week on starting your own naloxone program from colleagues in Europe.
  • The UK's National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse Overdose and Training Programme for Families and Carers provides a list of minimum training elements and the questions a group needs to ask as they are trying to set it up. Good, simple, practical advice.
  • Janna Ataiants and Dasha Ocheret of EHRN put together an awesome step-by-step guide to setting up naloxone programs. Topics covered include choosing models for procurement, storage and distribution, staff training, determining how many kits are needed, and advocacy strategies. The Annexes have tools for quality assessment and case studies.
