P.E.I. pharmacists teach UPEI students to use naloxone kits


The P.E.I. Pharmacists Association is aiming to spread awareness about how to use naloxone kits. This week, the association hosted a session at UPEI, where it taught students how to administer the life-saving drug.  Naloxone can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose and comes in the forms of a nasal spray or an injection.  The most recent numbers from the province show that between Jan. 1 and Oct. 1 2018, there were 19 accidental opioid overdoses on P.E.I.
