It is designed to be administered by a worker directly with a client/patient together on a device such as a tablet or computer. 

The intervention should take around 10-15 minutes to complete. All of the questions contained are optional, feel free to use this resource in a way that works for you.

NB: In Queensland, only workers who are authorised under an existing general approval from Queensland Health are allowed to possess and supply naloxone. See you manager or clinical director if you are unsure of your status.
