Management of Adolescents With OUD: A Simulation Case for Subspecialty Trainees in Addiction Medicine and Addiction Psychiatry

Date of Review: June, 2021

In this resource from MedEdPORTAL, Addiction Medicine Psych Fellows were taught using a one time simulation focused on opioid addiction in an adolescent. There was a pre-post comparison of satisfaction with the simulation and curriculum as well as confidence assessment. The simulation included SPs with well written out scripts. While the assessment of the curriculum and scope of experience using it is small, the material shared in MedEd Portal are comprehensive and provide a modest intervention for residents and fellows. –Aashish Didwania, MD, NCEAS
