How do we respond to opioid overdose in the community? A review from a Primary Health Care Centre in Kings Cross, Sydney.

Opioid overdose remains an urgent issue in our community. Every year many people have their lives affected by accidental opioid overdose. Take Home Naloxone (THN) is one of the ways we can effectively respond to this crisis. This presentation will include a brief overview of THN in Australia, look at the basics of naloxone, how we can provide THN to our community members and provide a review of THN at the Kirketon Road Centre, a Primary Health Care Centre in Kings Cross, Sydney.
