The Irish group
- (a) to pilot provision of Naloxone in Ireland for administration by opiate service users and their families, with the aim of reversing overdose;
- (b) to evaluate provision the pilot with the aim of improving the project, and – if proven effective then – to roll out national Naloxone provision.
The Welsh experience
On 6th July 2012, I attended the meeting of the group where Ivor Glynn, Director of the Swansea Drug Project, gave a presentation entitled: Naloxone- The Welsh Experience, to the Irish Naloxone Advisory Group.
