The OCAD U community is invited to participate in the SOONER research project. Overdose Education and Naloxone Distribution (OEND) programs involve training people who may be bystanders at an opioid overdose to recognize and respond to opioid-related emergencies.

The goal of the SOONER project is to bring OEND training into clinical care settings such as emergency departments, family practices, opioid substitution clinics and inpatient settings.

Scientists working with design experts and community members have created a prototype OEND toolkit that trains patients with a new naloxone delivery device which will soon be tested using a randomized trial.

We are inviting passersby to undergo brief training, and then test what they have learned on a mannequin simulating a state of overdose, and ask for their feedback.

The training and testing will take approximately 30 minutes. Anyone choosing to participate may also choose to end their participation at any time.

You can also sign up to secure your spot by completing this doodle.

If you have any questions, please contact Associate Professor Kate Sellen at ksellen@ocadu.ca.
