Course Description:

We have an opioid crisis in America like we have never seen before! Every day in her practice, Maria Broadstreet, R.N., MSN, APN, treats clients who have families, good jobs and amazing futures if they can take control of the “disease.”

Learn your way through emotional case studies – post-surgical pain management, the phenomenon of vaping, what we are beginning to learn from legalized marijuana … You have been challenged in the past. Asked to provide insight and recommendations on something that has been so misunderstood. With the vastly changing addiction field, new research is emerging. We now can “see” the brain chemistry changes from opioids on actual MRIs. With these valuable clinical insights, you truly can help people recover and lead the meaningful, happy lives they desire!

Think about Jack … a 36 year old attorney, married, 2 kids, helps coach his son’s track team on the weekends. To most who are looking from the outside, he has it all ... a big house, beautiful family, they go on amazing vacations … no one sees how he struggles in the morning until he is able to take his Vicodin, how he has to hide in the bathroom at the office so no one asks any questions, how he is consumed with making sure he has enough pills and hopes his wife doesn’t notice how much money he took out of their checking account this week …

No longer does “addiction” mean a specific stereotype. It crosses ages, socioeconomic groups, races, cultures. Withdrawal is scary, overdose is scary, we didn’t sign up for this … but we are called on as the experts to navigate the largest epidemic we will probably know in our lifetime. If it hasn’t professional or personally affected you, it will … it’s unavoidable.

Objectives:

  1. Assess rapidly to treat an opioid overdose.
  2. Differentiate between addiction and typical co-occurring disorders.
  3. Construct the steps necessary to avoid precipitated withdrawal when starting medication-assisted therapy.
  4. Analyze the brain impacted by opioid abuse.
  5. Plan to optimally administer Narcan both IM and intra nasal, as well as the essential evaluations afterwards.
  6. Determine pain treatment options for a patient with an opioid addiction.
  7. Choose patient teaching based upon what we know and what we don’t know regarding vaping.
