SAVE lives: Overdose first aid

BC and Canada are in the midst of an opioid overdose crisis. In this workshop, you will reflect on the subject of substance use and its impacts, examine stigma and biases you may hold that would prevent helping, and gain practical strategies you can use to minimize the risk of substance use for yourself and others. These skills will increase participants’ confidence to recognize and help an overdose situation and make UBC a safer place.

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Minimize harm in situations with substance use
  • Identify ways to prevent overdose
  • Recognize and help someone who is overdosing

Facilitated by the UBC First Aid Student Team
