Naloxone Collaborative Practice Agreement

Recently, a variety of naloxone kits have become available for patients at high risk of adverse events from narcotics.  This is an area that is well-suited for a collaborative practice agreement.  Attached is a draft Naloxone Collaborative Practice Agreement Template that can be adapted to your individual practice site.  These are available in both Microsoft Word and PDF Format.  Please note that these are only templates and must be approved by your pharmacy and medical leadership according to Utah State Law.
