Would you recognise an opiate overdose? Would you know how to deal with it appropriately? Do you come into contact with discarded injecting paraphernalia?

This session is two part - it gives attendees the knowledge to recognise an opiate overdose and how to deal with it appropriately (both with and without the use of Naloxone) and information for those that may come into contact with discarded injecting paraphernalia.

Needle Safety:

  • What to look out for
  • How to safely remove such items
  • How to respond in the event of a needle stick injury
  • Some brief blood borne virus info
  • Opportunity for any questions

Course Fees:

  • SCVS Members - Half Day Course £10
  • Non SCVS Members / Individuals - Half Day Course £75

To ensure that the payment of fees is not a barrier to attending courses, we provide some places at reduced cost to individuals receiving benefit/out of county third sector organisations. Please contact the Training Team if you would like to apply for a bursary.
