3025-19:  Do Nurses’ Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Personal Experiences and Education Impact their Willingness to Provide Care to Patients with Opioid Use-Related Problems?  |  A Community Collaboration of HOPE- Heroin and Opioid Prevention and Education

Mini concurrent sessions are presented live as two 20-minute presentations plus Q&A. Below they are offered as individual audio recordings.

Do Nurses’ Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Personal Experiences and Education Impact their Willingness to Provide Care to Patients with Opioid Use-Related Problems?
This presentation explores the impact nurses' AOD-personal experiences and education have on shaping their opioid use-related perceptions and consequently their willingness to provide care to patients with opioid use-related problems. Exploring these personal and educational experiences can promote the development of interventions that target nurses' willingness to provide opioid-related care.
Presenter:  Khadejah F. Mahmoud, PhD(c), MSN
