Audience: Lay people who might have a friend or loved one suffering from an opioid addiction
Problem: Prescription opioids carry serious risk of addiction, abuse, and overdose and often lay people are unaware of what steps they should take to help someone with a suspected opioid overdose.
Strategy: Provide information and guidance on the correct steps to take when helping someone with a suspected opioid overdose.
Solution: This module consisted of two main sections: the learning section and the interactive case scenario. Users were introduced to the problem with opioids - who is at risk, signs/symptoms of an overdose, etc. Then, users could decide whether they wanted to "Learn More" or "Help Now." The "Learn More" section walked them through the steps you would use to identify and respond to a suspected opioid overdose using naloxone. The "Help Now" section brought them directly into the interactive case scenario where they would answer three questions about what to do next and then receive feedback. They would see the answers they chose and then would be directed onto the correct pathway. After the case scenario, they could go back to the "Learn More" section or if they felt confident, review the summary and complete the module.
