333-055-0100

Purpose

(1) The purpose of OAR 333-055-0100 through 333-055-0110 is to define the protocols and criteria for training on lifesaving treatments for opiate overdose.

(2) Nothing in these rules is meant to require training for health care professionals that are otherwise authorized to administer naloxone within their scope of practice.

(3) Opiate overdose requiring lifesaving treatment occurs in a wide variety of settings and circumstances, creating a need for training a variety of overdose responders. In recognition of this need, Oregon law authorizes a wide range of organizations to provide training on lifesaving treatments for opiate overdose including public health authorities, and organizations and other appropriate entities that provide services to individuals who take opiates. The Oregon Public Health Division interprets providing services to opiate users broadly and includes but is not limited to clinical, substance abuse, social services, public health, law enforcement and criminal justice, and other providers.
