Brief Emergency Medicine Interventions to Prevent Opioid Overdoses Training


Brief Emergency Medicine Interventions to Prevent Opioid Abuse is a training for Emergency Department staff that will provide them with the communication skills to have needed and critical conversations effectively. The training introduces or refreshes participants’ SBIRT skills (Screening Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment) and has been specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of the emergency department with its fast pace and sense of urgency. Participants will have the opportunity to learn, observe and practice skills through the use of experts and simulated patient actors.

This training uses a flipped classroom model, which is an instructional strategy that reverses the traditional learning environment by delivering content, often online, outside of the classroom. It then moves activities into the classroom.
