Naloxone, Opioids and Educators

The Robert Young Center, Unity Point Trinity Hospital, as part of the Illinois Drug Overdose Prevention Program, Naloxone Grant to prevent opioid overdose, is providing free opioid training and free Naloxone overdose prevention kits.  This training is being offered at no cost, to promote the recognition of opioids and to help prevent and reduce overdoses.  The training is for all educators, nurses, counselors, administrators and staff. As part of this training, Naloxone opioid overdose prevention kits will be provided to each participant.

The training has been provided to Police Officers, EMS and Firefighters. Therefore, the training is being offered also to the public school personnel, in the hopes of helping to stem the tide in the number of opioid overdoses in our communities.  The CDC has identified that the age groups of 12-17 and 18-24 are the largest groups of abusers of prescription opioid pain relievers, ADHD stimulants and anti-anxiety medications.  The majority of the overdoses in these age groups were unintentional, but with the availability of the opioids from various sources, educating about the symptoms of use, abuse and overdose prevention will help to stem the tide of overdose deaths. The issue of opioid poisonings and overdoses are affecting all age groups. In turn, the reduction and elimination of these events is the goal.  Three different times to choose from.

#11796 A Design Thinking Approach to Education

By the time our students enter the working world, the technology that we teach them today will more than likely be obsolete. How then, can we best prepare them for the workplace that they will encounter? The answer lies in two concepts that will never become obsolete: innovation and creativity. The Design Thinking framework gives us the ability to develop a creative problem-solving mindset when looking at situations. This framework can be brought into our classrooms to create an atmosphere that focuses on collaboration, research, and creativity. Participants in this workshop will engage in a deep dive into the Design Thinking framework while completing hands-on challenges. We will also dedicate time to discuss and work through ways it can be implemented in the classroom.
