Opioid Overdose Awareness and Naloxone Administration Training

The HSE’s Opioid Overdose Awareness and Naloxone Administration Two Module Training course enabled by the S.I 238 of 2023 has been developed by the HSE National Social Inclusion Office to provide learners with the skills to recognise, intervene and respond to an opioid overdose, including the administration of naloxone.

Module 1 is available on HSeLanD. You can find the module by using the “search a module” tool with the key word “naloxone”. This course is open to all HSeLanD users and designed for all frontline workers (clinical and non-clinical) and volunteers who may witness an opioid overdose.

The e-Learning course on HSeLanD is Module 1 of a two module course. It is a pre-requisite, along with current in date CPR training for attendance at the in-person Module 2 training.

Successful completion of Module 2 is required for an Organisation to notify the HPRA (via the Emergency Medicines Portal)  of its intention to procure or purchase a naloxone from a pharmacy or other supplier for supply and administration in an emergency situation.
