"Naloxone Education and Simulation” (Introductory)
The Naloxone Education and Simulation session will provide education on an essential life-saving medication, naloxone. This program covers recent data, statistics, and trends related to the ongoing opioid epidemic and relates national data to state- and county-level data. The session also includes an overview of what naloxone is and when it should be used. We discuss safety information related to naloxone administration. Finally, we will experience a simulation of what it looks like when someone suffers an opioid-related overdose and understand how to administer naloxone in this situation.
Target Audience: All providers, family members, interested individuals.
By the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
- Explain recent trends related to the opioid epidemic.
- Recognize the uses of naloxone, and the symptoms of when to administer it.
- Describe and demonstrate the steps to administering naloxone.
Roisin Sabol, BSPS, PharmD Candidate (Speaker)
Western Psychiatric Hospital
Roisin Sabol is a Pittsburgh native. She completed her undergraduate training at the University of Pittsburgh and started to explore her interest in psychiatry during that time through a research position in a psychiatric genetics laboratory. Soon into her undergraduate career, she realized her love of pharmacy and the opportunity to educate patients on both medications and disease states. She is now a PharmD Candidate at the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy. After earning her PharmD in April 2022, she intends to complete a postgraduate pharmacy residency training program to enhance her clinical skills. Her ultimate goal is to become a Board-Certified Psychiatric Pharmacist.
Roisin has been an intern at Western Psychiatric Hospital pharmacy and Forbes Pharmacy since April 2019. This experience has furthered her passion for treating patients with mental illness. She has gained a more thorough understanding of the tremendous role that the entire patient care team plays in helping patients manage their illnesses. In particular, she is interested in treating patients with substance use disorders. With this passion comes her desire to educate community members and patients alike on harm-reduction tools such as naloxone. I have conducted numerous Naloxone Education and Simulation sessions through the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy and Western Psychiatric Hospital. I am thrilled to present this session to CCBH and other UPMC staff members.
