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.

Learning objectives:

  • 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  • Reject outdated and moralistic beliefs about "addicts" and "addiction"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.

Users receive customized feedback based on their in-simulation choices.

The simulation is available online 24/7. Users are asked to complete pre-, post-, and 3-month follow up surveys to assess changes in skills. Attitudes, and behavior. Upon completion, users receive a certificate of completion.  Clients have access to usage reports and evaluation data via the Kognito client portal.
