This is an issue that is recently starting to gain mass media attention.
Here's the article for context:
University of Ottawa student leaders can’t carry naloxone for orientation week
"...the [student] group initially planned to have about 100 student leaders carry naloxone kits to combat any overdoses that could occur during the parties and events that get under way over the long weekend...That plan was recently abandoned, however, after the union consulted with lawyers, local health organizations and protection services on campus and realized it could be held liable if the antidote was injected improperly and led to a person being injured..."
"Student leaders at orientation events are being trained to call, in the case of an overdose, on-campus emergency employees who can administer naloxone if needed...Student leaders will also be allowed to carry naloxone when they're off duty and not wearing orientation week uniforms"
First, some praise:
What went wrong?
What can be done?
