A new nasal spray formulation for opioid overdose

Saving lives: Australian naloxone access model
Penington Institute has examined international take-home naloxone (THN) programs to inform the development of a model for the Australian context. These programs distribute the life-saving drug naloxone to people likely to witness an opioid overdose, usually free-of-charge. These findings assisted in proposing a model for a national THN program for Australia to adopt as part of a national public health response to growing rates of opioid overdose.

 

Nyxoid nasal spray is Schedule 3 medication. To comply with The Therapeutic Goods Act, this symposium is restricted to health care professionals only.

Cost: Complimentary for conference delegates.
