BPB 02: Moving Forward with Reversing Drug Overdose
Naloxone (Narcan) has the power to reverse the impact of opioid overdose. Access to this potentially life-saving option is limited across the state even as opioids continue to be routinely prescribed. Pharmacists play a valuable role for education and distribution of this life-saving medication. Josh Ohrtman, PharmD, will highlight the challenges and progress for improved screening, access, and reimbursement for a South Dakota pharmacy.

1. Explain how pharmacy services reduce overdose by providing access to Narcan
2. Describe the eligibility and reimbursement processes for naloxone distribution
3. Identify methods for improving risk screening and education to reduce the risk of opioid overdose and addiction
