Opioid Grand Rounds: Overcoming Addiction: a Nurse’s Story
March 23, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Overcoming Addiction: a Nurse’s Story
Combining the stressful nature of working in the patient care setting and the high availability of controlled substances, nurses and other healthcare workers are at increased risk of developing substance use disorder.
In this talk, David Kelly, RN will discuss how to care for the caregiver. How do we educate staff to recognize when they or a colleague may be in trouble or headed that way due to substance use disorder? How do we help that staff member once the issue is identified? Mr. Kelly will discuss my own personal journey as a nurse who developed an opioid use disorder.
