An Interprofessional Addiction Simulation for Primary Care in Rural Health: Development and Implementation
Registered Nurses (RNs) are underrepresented and rarely utilized to their full scope of practice, especially in rural primary care settings. • Opioid use is an epidemic in the United States, leading to increased risk for addiction. • Screening and prompt treatment from the interprofessional (IP) team can improve patient outcomes. • Preparing students by creating experiential learning experiences is essential to the profession to overcome this gap in practice. • Simulation designers may not feel equipped to develop an IP addiction simulation focused on primary care.
