In this simulation, learners practice applying relationship-centered communication techniques to discuss opioid use and pharmacotherapy with a patient, either in-office or via telehealth.
- Recognize people with OUD as patients in need of help
- Reject outdated and moralistic beliefs about "addicts" and "addiction"
- Understand the medications available to treat OUD and their effectiveness
- Use shared decision-making and motivational approaches to help people with OUD engage in healthier behavior and begin recovery through treatment
- Incorporate best practices for telehealth visits
Research shows that with experiential practice, increased emotional engagement and reflective thinking leads to stronger self-efficacy and behavior change.
