Naloxone Standing Order

Under a new law, Iowa pharmacists may dispense naloxone by a standing order to an individual at risk of an opioid-related overdose or a person who may be in a position to assist an individual at risk of an opioid-related overdose. Dr. Patricia Quinlisk, the Medical Director and State Epidemiologist with the Iowa Department of Public Health, has authorized a standing order that is available to all Iowa pharmacists who have met the required training criteria.
