Title: The Pennsylvania  Naloxone Prescription Standing Order for Overdose Prevention: Implications on Community Pharmacy Practice

Heroin and opioid overdose are the leading cause of accidental death in Pennsylvania.  In October of 2015, Governor Tom Wolf announced a statewide naloxone standing order for overdose prevention, signed by Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine.  This program will outline the components of this newly signed standing order as well as discuss best practices for implementation within the community pharmacy setting.  Proper device use will be displayed and patient/eligible person (those in a position to assist a person at risk of experiencing an opioid-related overdose) education will be discussed.
