Opioid drug abuse is a concern that affects the entire community. The decision to implement a stock naloxone program in schools should be a community decision. The school nurse is a leader in student health and has the education and expertise to assist the community and school leadership in assessing the need for a stock naloxone program.
This toolkit offers numerous resources to assist school nurses and other school leaders to evaluate and respond to the opioid epidemic appropriately.
