Overview of Course
This course offers technology-based learning through gamification in the form of virtual simulation. This simulation course contains 3 individual, interactive case scenarios in which the user will learn to utilize the 2016 CDC Guidelines to reduce overall opioid prescriptions and look towards multimodal methods of pain control.
Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Understand and calculate Morphine equivalent.
2. Use “CDC Opioid Guidelines” to learn safe prescribing strategies for opioids in the acute and chronic pain setting.
3. Use “CDC Opioid Guidelines” to offer alternative and complementary non-opioid pain control measures.
Verification of Participation
This simulation contains 3 individual, interactive case scenarios. Players are scored on the correct and incorrect actions and decisions they make within the game. A passing score must be achieved in each of the 3 modules to complete the overall task of beating the game. Incorrect responses will prompt a retry of the module.
