Brandman, Chapman, UCI combine for inter-professional education on opioid crisis
The Marybelle and S. Paul Musco School of Nursing at Brandman University hosted an inter-professional education activity focused on the opioid crisis and aimed at medical students from UC Irvine, pharmacy students from Chapman University and nursing students from Brandman.
Associate dean Sonia Luckey, DNP, coordinated the program for Brandman, relying on the university’s state-of-the-art Simulation Center to give the students an opportunity to practice the skills needed to quickly treat overdose victims including bag-mask-valve ventilation and assembling Narcan intranasal, an opioid overdose antidote.
The students were trained on the latest tools for opioid screening and recent changes to laws in California. They also discussed among themselves how to assess, analyze or plan a treatment.
The team approach – students from each school worked together – mirrored the way they would be likely to work in actual clinical settings, said Luckey, who was joined by faculty members from UCI School of Medicine and Chapman University School of Pharmacy.
