Learn How to Start Conversations About Naloxone

The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) has just released a new resource aimed at helping pharmacists talk to their patients about naloxone use.  As APhA reports, “coprescribing naloxone to patients taking opioids has been shown to significantly reduce opioid-related harms. Greater access to naloxone has been associated with 63% fewer emergency department visits and 27%–46% fewer opioid overdose deaths.”
