Penn-wide Virtual Overdose Reversal Training
Welcome! We are excited to offer this free, virtual overdose reversal training to the entire Penn community, uniting students, faculty, health care staff and others around a common goal - to end the overdose epidemic in our communities. Whatever your Penn Medicine entity or UPenn affiliation, your participation in this effort is invaluble.
This training is appropriate for persons with no medical background, but are led by trained emergency responders from Penn Medicine and/or the University of Pennsylvania who can answer more advanced questions. Aspects of Basic Life Support (BLS) training are referred to during the training, but previous training is not required. We will also present several ways to obtain naloxone nasal spray, the life-saving overdose reversal medication.
