Carlton County Medical Professionals Receive Narcan Training

Pharmacy's Have A New Protocol

The push to educate people on the access one has to Narcan expands outside of Duluth.

Thursday medical professionals from towns across Carlton County came out to Fond du Lac Technical College to learn more about the protocol in Minnesota for area pharmacies.

As part of the recent opiate protocol in Minnesota, community members are able to seek access to naloxone directly from a pharmacy by requesting it over the counter.

One organizer says it’s important to educate all medical professionals in the northland.

“This is a better way to reach the people that are practicing up in Moose Lake, Barnum, Cloquet areas to make sure we find places that are convenient for people to attend, and also get folks together that work together,” Laura Palombi, Assistant Professor, Duluth College of Pharmacy.

The last two trainings were for the medical professionals in the area only. Organizers have set up a community wide training opportunity for anyone who wants to attend.

The information is below.
