About the Role
The clinical director signs naloxone order forms and issues standing orders to allow designated staff at The Beautiful Brain Project to dispense naloxone under their medical license. The clinical director is protected by liability coverage: The Department of Health interprets the liability protection provided by Public Health Law §3309 (4) as being inclusive of clinical directors and affiliated prescribers of registered opioid overdose prevention programs, so long as they are acting reasonably and in good faith.
