New Resource for Nursing Home Educators

IPRO and the Opioid Response Network (ORN) have
developed an education series for use by nursing home
staff educators. This education series will address the
often missed, yet impactful issues of addiction, trauma,
stigma, and chronic pain management.
This pre-packaged, two-month, six-module education
series includes:
• Three live webinars, with Delores Blackwell, PhD
(before, during and after the series) for educators to
review the education materials supplied and receive
support in presenting the content.
Educational content for all staff in a series of six
education sessions designed to last 25-30 minutes
each. Included for each session:
▪ Six prerecorded modules (15 minutes)
▪ Written materials to support discussion led by the
educator (10-15 minutes)
