Post-Opioid Overdose Linkage and Care

Join AIDS United for a 90-minute webinar on the topic of Post-Opioid Overdose Linkage and Care on Thursday, March 20th from 2-3:30 pm EST/11-12:30 pm PST. Register here.

Presenters will explain risk factors for opioid-overdose; identify strategies to address opioid overdose; and describe strategies for effectively working with others at the scene of an opioid overdose.

  • Identify appropriate post-opioid overdose linkage and referrals
  • Understand what a safety plan is and how to use this with the individual who has experienced an opioid overdose
  • Identify strategies for providing ongoing support for staff and volunteers who have responded to and/or witnessed an opioid overdose
