Fatalities caused by overdose from opioids are increasing in Vermont. Evidence shows that Naloxone safely and effectively reverses the effects of opioids in overdose. This project aims to determine why physicians in VT Emergency Departments are not consistently distributing Naloxone to all patients with an overdose, and to increase awareness and implementation of this practice.
