A longitudinal study of naloxone opioid overdose awareness and reversal training for first-year medical students: specific elements require reinforcement

It is established that while OOART provides participants with the knowledge of how to respond to an opioid overdose, the retention of this knowledge at a 3-month interval is reduced, and evidence is provided that OO ART must be reinforced often.

Effectiveness of online training of first and second year AEGD residents in identifying, referring, and managing patients at-risk for substance use and opioid disorders.

Dental curricula would benefit from incorporating training of residents in identifying, referring, and managing patients at risk for substance use disorder and opioid use, according to this study.

Pharmacy Student Engagement, Performance, and Perception in a Flipped Satellite Classroom

The flipped pharmacy classroom can enhance the quality of satellite students’ experiences in a basic pharmaceutics course through thoughtful course design, enriched dialogue, and promotion of learner autonomy.

Flipped classroom model improves graduate student performance in cardiovascular, respiratory, and renal physiology.

It is proposed that the use of homework and in-class quizzes were critical motivating factors that likely contributed to the increase in student exam performance and support that the flipped classroom model is a highly effective means in which to disseminate key physiological concepts to graduate students.

The substance abuse attitude survey: an instrument for measuring attitudes.

The development of a standardized Substance Abuse Attitude Survey (SAAS) is described and has proven useful in developing attitudinal objectives, measuring achievement of these objectives and modifying teaching approaches in both undergraduate and continuing medical education.

Attitudinal factors associated with community pharmacists' involvement in services for drug misusers.

Pharmacists that provided needle/syringe exchanges, sold needles/syringes, dispensed methadone, supervised the consumption of Methadone and provided health promotion services to drug misusers had significantly more positive attitudes towards drug mis users.

Assessment of provider attitudes toward #naloxone on Twitter.

Attitudes of health professionals on the social media platform Twitter are examined to better understand their perceptions of opioid users, the role of naloxone, and potential training needs to improve treatment outcomes and reduce provider stigma.
