Opoid Overdose Training

Empowering Students to End the Cycle of Addiction

There is no question that the opioid crisis in Maryland has reached epidemic proportions. In the first three quarters of 2016, the state reported 1,468 unintentional deaths caused by substance abuse, with a majority of the fatalities attributed to heroin and fentanyl. In the same period, there were approximately 500 deaths reported in Baltimore City alone, an increase from approximately 300 the previous year. With overdose numbers this staggering, individuals working in public health and clinical health care have started to wonder what more can they do to address this problem.

Through the Emerging Leaders program, I met an individual from the School of Nursing who invited me to join the planning committee for the Baltimore Area Health Education Center’s (BAHEC) Interdisciplinary Training on Opioid Overdose. We organized an event called “Empowering Students to End the Cycle of Addiction,” which took place on April 8, 2017. Students, staff, and faculty, representing the Graduate School and the Schools of Law, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Social Work at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB), came together to learn about the opioid epidemic in Baltimore City and to discuss their professional and personal roles in reducing opioid overdoses. Attendees also left the training certified to administer naloxone – a lifesaving drug that can reverse opioid overdoses.

Preparing Students to Save Lives

The day began with an eye-opening presentation from David Richard Fowler, MD, chief medical examiner for the state of Maryland, in which he presented data on the number of overdose deaths. He discussed the implications that this public health crisis is having on his office, noting that the increase in fatalities has caused a huge strain on his office’s human resources.

Next, Miriam Alvarez, the opioid education and naloxone distribution (OEND) outreach program coordinator at Behavioral Health Systems Baltimore, provided an inspired naloxone training. She engaged the audience by asking questions about their knowledge of opioids and their ability to recognize the signs of an opioid overdose. She stressed that while opioid misuse was once considered a low income, inner-city problem, it affects individuals from all walks of life, and we should all be prepared to respond in the event that we witness an overdose.

Representing the School of Pharmacy, Fadia Shaya, PhD, MPH, professor and vice chair for academic affairs in the Department of Pharmaceutical Health Services Research (PHSR) and director of the Behavioral Health Research Team, discussed the pharmacist’s role in preventing opioid overdose. She spoke about Maryland’s naloxone standing order, which allows registered pharmacists to dispense naloxone without a prescription and discussed different measures that pharmacists and pharmacies can take to ensure that they are actively involved in preventing opioid misuse, including an explanation of the risks of prescription opioids with patients and querying the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) before filling a prescription. Shaya closed her presentation by mentioning a variety of public health prevention programs on which her team works related to this issue.

Making the Discussion Hit Home

Following the presentations, faculty from the medical, dental, and social work schools presented students with a case study that profiled a young man who began misusing prescription opioids following a sports injury, and subsequently developed a dependency on heroin. Faculty encouraged students to identify areas of health care intervention, which sparked a lively discussion among attendees. The event closed with Mellissa Sager, JD, staff attorney at the School of Law, presenting an overview of the Good Samaritan Law and an update from a Baltimore City Health Department representative, who described the city’s response to the opioid overdose epidemic.

This training proved to be a huge success, with more than 55 students attending the Saturday morning training to take action on this important issue. Considering the interest in this event and the urgency of this public health epidemic, the BAHEC plans to host another training in the fall. Everyone at UMB has a role to play in reducing opioid overdoses, and this event provided an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to become more empowered to do so.

Texting and Driving

Don’t Text and Drive

Driving Safety – Put Your Phone Away! Don’t Text and Drive.

WHAT IS DISTRACTED DRIVING?

When we think of the term “distracted driving” the first thing that comes to mind is cellphone usage in tandem with driving a car. However, distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person’s attention away from the primary task of driving. All distractions endanger driver, passenger, and bystander safety. These types of distractions include:

  • Texting
  • Using a cell phone or smartphone to make a call, check email, play a game, etc.
  • Adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3 player
  • Reading, including maps
  • Using a navigation system
  • Watching a video
  • Eating and drinking
  • Changing clothes
  • Talking to passengers
  • Grooming

But, because text messaging requires visual, manual, and cognitive attention from the driver, it is considered by far one of the most alarming distractions.

The average time your eyes are off the road while texting is approximately 5 seconds. When traveling at 55mph, which is enough time to cover the length of a football field blindfolded!

What You Can Do to Help

According to the FCC Consumer Guide there are things you can do to help:

“Give clear instructions – Give new drivers simple, clear instructions not to use their wireless devices while driving. Before new drivers get their licenses, discuss the fact that taking their eyes off the road – even for a few seconds – could cost someone injury or even death.

Lead by example – No one should text and drive. Be an example for others and, if you need to text or talk on the phone, pull over to a safe place. Set rules for yourself and your household regarding distracted driving.

Become informed and be active – Tell family, friends and organizations to which you belong about the importance of driving without distractions. Take information to your kids’ schools and ask that it be shared with students and parents.”

Wear Red Day

Million Hearts Month: Celebrating Five Heart Healthy Years

Every February, students, faculty, and staff across the School of Pharmacy wear their hearts on their sleeves and come together in support of American Heart Month and the Million Hearts Initiative — a five-year national campaign launched in 2011, with the goal of preventing one million heart attacks and strokes in the United States. Throughout the month, the School’s American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) Operation Heart committee hosts a series of heart-related events dedicated to the initiative and promotion of heart health across the School and local Baltimore area. Within the last five years, our committee has:

  • Provided blood pressure screenings to more than 600
  • Educated more than 5,000 patients about how to keep their hearts healthy
  • Reached more than 60,000 people through public and media relations

With the Million Hearts Initiative coming to an end, our committee decided to leverage this year’s events to celebrate our past dedication to the initiative, as well as the beginning of a new era of promoting heart health. We held seven events to celebrate our final Million Hearts Month.

Wear Red Day

To kick off this year’s campaign, approximately 60 student pharmacists, faculty, and staff congregated in the Ellen H. Yankellow Grand Atrium in Pharmacy Hall for an annual “Wear Red Day” photo to show our support for National Wear Red Day. The event also featured a photo booth in which participants could sign the pledge to keep their hearts healthy and pose with their heart-shaped pledges.

Aspirin Day

In collaboration with APhA-ASP’s Operation Diabetes and the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists student chapter, Operation Heart visited Mt. Clare Apartments in West Baltimore to provide educational presentations about safe aspirin use and healthy low-sugar and low-sodium meals.

 Blood Pressure Training Session

A blood pressure training session led by the School’s cardiology pharmacy practice faculty was held to help prepare student pharmacists to provide cardiovascular screening and education for patients in the community. Faculty delivered presentations that featured general hypertension and blood pressure information. Later, students split into groups to participate in a quiz competition that tested their knowledge.

 Roses for Hearts

Operation Heart sold red roses to faculty, staff, and students on Valentine’s Day, raising more than $150 to donate to the American Heart Association and the School’s APhA-ASP chapter.

 Hits4Heart

Our committee held its annual interprofessional dodgeball tournament to raise funds for the American Heart Association. Students from the School of Pharmacy and School of Medicine participated in an eight-team, double-elimination tournament. More than 55 students attended, raising $210 for the American Heart Association.

Heart Gala and Mr. & Ms. Heart Pageant

New this year, Operation Heart hosted its inaugural Heart Gala to celebrate the School’s dedication to the Million Hearts Initiative. More than 60 guests attended in their red attire and enjoyed dinner as well as entertainment, including heart-related trivia and the first Mr. and Ms. Heart Pageant. Participants competed for the crown and were judged by the School’s cardiology pharmacy practice faculty on their “hearty” attire and heart knowledge.

Charm of a Million Hearts Health Fair

To end this year’s month-long campaign, Operation Heart once again hosted its annual interdisciplinary health fair at Lexington Market, where students offered blood pressure screenings, HIV/Hepatitis C screenings, oral cancer screenings, health education, cooking demonstrations, and dental screenings to members of the local community. Committee members were even interviewed by two news stations during the event. We provided more than 250 patients with services and collaborated with more than 30 school-based and community organizations to make the fair a success.

My co-chair, second-year student pharmacist Teny Joseph, and I are immensely proud of the dedication and commitment shown by all of our committee members and project coordinators this year. It is because of them that we were able to have such a great impact in our community. To that end, we would like to give a special thank-you to the following individuals who helped us organize this year’s events:

  • Carly Cheng, First-Year Student Pharmacist
  • Saniya Chaudhry, First-Year Student Pharmacist
  • Elodie Tendoh, First-Year Student Pharmacist
  • Pasang Sherpa, First-Year Student Pharmacist
  • Jennifer Miller, First-Year Student Pharmacist
  • Charlie Summerlin, Second-Year Student Pharmacist
  • Jennifer Joo, First-Year Student Pharmacist
  • Gao Xin, First-Year Student Pharmacist
  • Xinqi Liu, First-Year Student Pharmacist

Although it is a bittersweet to close the door on the Million Hearts Initiative, I am excited for what the future holds for Operation Heart and the American Heart Association’s new initiative: Rise Above Heart Failure.

Gail Lemaire

Nursing’s Lemaire Named Honorable Mention for CNL Educator Award

Gail Schoen Lemaire, PhD ’96, PMHCNS, BC, CNL, associate professor and associate dean for the Master of Science program, University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON), was awarded honorable mention for the 2017 Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) Educator Vanguard Award by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and the Commission on Nurse Certification (CNC) at the recent 2017 CNL Summit in Atlanta.

The CNL Educator Vanguard Award recognizes a CNL faculty member or program director for innovative and outstanding preparation of and advocacy for CNLs. The award also promotes the contributions of the CNL faculty member in transforming nursing education and encouraging innovation in both academia and practice.

Lemaire has been instrumental in shaping UMSON’s CNL option, currently ranked No. 1 by U.S.News & World Report, since its inception in 2005. She was the program’s co-director from 2005-08 and its director from 2011-15. From 2013-14, Lemaire oversaw the revision of the CNL curriculum. Additionally, she has secured $630,000 in scholarships for 63 CNL students through six rounds of funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s New Careers in Nursing Program during a seven-year period. In her current role, Lemaire oversees the CNL option, teaches CNL classes, and has an active practice as a nurse psychotherapist, providing treatment for patients diagnosed with cancer and psychiatric disorders.

“Dr. Lemaire’s recognition is a tribute to her exceptional and pioneering work as an academic administrator establishing and overseeing the CNL program and as a faculty member developing an innovative pedagogy utilizing an array of teaching strategies and learning experiences,” said UMSON Dean Jane M. Kirschling, PhD, RN, FAAN. “It takes a special set of talents to forge new ground and create a highly successful program; it is easy to forget that the CNL option, in particular the idea of a second-degree, entry-level program, is just over a decade old. It is a testament to Dr. Lemaire that our graduates model the skills and abilities envisioned when the CNL concept was developed. They are creative problem-solvers, innovators, and change agents and are able to leverage their prior education, work, and life experiences to improve health care delivery.”

A CNL is a master’s-educated nurse who is prepared to practice across the continuum of care within any health care setting. AACN developed the CNL role in collaboration with leaders from both health care practice and education to address the need to improve patient care outcomes. These master’s-prepared clinicians use evidence-based practice to focus on care coordination, risk assessment, quality improvement, and team leadership.

“For more than a decade, it has been a pleasure and my privilege to teach, mentor, and advocate for CNL students at the University of Maryland School of Nursing. CNL students bring enthusiasm, broad perspectives, and valuable experiences to the learning environment and ultimately to the practice setting,” Lemaire said. “I believe they represent our greatest strength for transforming practice to reduce health disparities and ensure quality health care.”

Nursing’s CNL Option and Nursing Informatics No. 1 in Nation

In the recently released 2018 edition of U.S.News & World Report’s “America’s Best Graduate Schools,” the University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON) remains ranked No. 1 for two of its master’s specialties/options and has an additional master’s specialty ranked in the top five. The School’s master’s-level Clinical Nurse Leader option and Nursing Informatics specialty are ranked No. 1, and the Health Services Leadership and Management master’s specialty rose to No. 3 in the administration category. Its Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program is ranked 10th in the nation.

UMSON continues to be ranked in the top 10 among all accredited graduate nursing programs, and it has eight master’s and DNP specialties, options, or programs ranked in the top 10, including Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner/Adult-Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist, Family Nurse Practitioner, Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, and Nurse Anesthesia. The Nurse Anesthesia specialty rankings were released in last year’s edition of “America’s Best Graduate Schools” and will be in effect until 2021.

“It is gratifying to continue to be recognized within the top 10 overall nursing programs nationally and to have numerous specialty areas also singled out,” said UMSON Dean Jane M. Kirschling, PhD, RN, FAAN. “These rankings are a testament to the commitment of our faculty, staff, students, and alumni to excellence in nursing education, research, and practice. The School of Nursing continues to play an important role in state and national efforts to increase the number of nurses with advanced degrees; we believe this is essential to ensuring that nurses are well-prepared to meet the needs of our diverse communities within a rapidly changing health care environment.”

The U.S.News & World Report rankings are based on a variety of indicators, including student selectivity and program size, faculty resources, and research activity, and on survey data from deans of schools of nursing and that are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education or the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.
