Penington Institute has developed two videos that support our goal to reduce the number of fatal and non-fatal overdoses in Australia. The two videos include critical information on how to recognise and respond to opioid overdose, including administering the life-saving medication naloxone to a person who is not responding.

Naloxone: Saving Lives, is for people who are at risk of opioid overdose and their friends and families. It explains how to recognise the signs of overdose and safely administer naloxone.

Naloxone: Experience and Perspectives, is for frontline workers and people who are at risk of overdose. In the video, police, ambulance officers, doctors and health workers speak about the lifesaving capacity of naloxone, and their support for its use in a community setting.

Thanks to Craig Harvey for these short videos about how to open a naloxone ampoule.
