Opioid Risk Mitigation Strategies and Overdose Resuscitation

Date of Review: September, 2018

This resource, from MedEdPORTAL, can be used by medical educators for teaching medical students about the opioid crisis as well as strategies for prevention, risk mitigation, overdose and treatment. It can be used as a self-contained module; it is software based, interactive, and takes 30-50 minutes to complete. The entire opioid risk mitigation, reduction and overdose resuscitation online modules that can be reviewed, shared and integrated into existing coursework. This module is meant to be used as a component of a larger curriculum. The authors implement it with faculty experts facilitating the session and would be appropriate as part of a facilitated small group learning activity. Limitations include the need for objective assessment of knowledge and skill acquisition, however the authors report developing an OSCE to address this gap. —Ashti Doobay-Persaud, MD, NCEAS
