Administering naloxone, a drug that reverses opioid overdoses by restoring breathing, can be very scary. But, if done correctly and quickly, you can save a life. With the opioid crisis not slowing down, it's a good idea to be adequately informed and prepared should you come across someone experiencing an overdose.

The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) leads the first part of this seminar by discussing the opioid crisis, giving information about naloxone and Indiana laws that govern naloxone. The ISDH will then provide training on how to recognize an overdose and administer naloxone. The presentation wraps up by discussing the legal implications of a provider or agency acting in an emergency or life-threatening situation. We'll talk about the Indiana Good Samaritan laws, Out-of-Hospital do not resuscitate (DNR) orders, Hospital DNRs and the POST laws as well as expectations of various governmental agencies in relation to the provision of care in emergency situations.
