Week 1 Pathways to Safer Opioid Use Simulation and Reflection

· This week, you will complete the

Pathways to Safer Opioid Use simulation
from the patient perspective and reflect on the experience.

· Watch the opening introduction video and then click on the right arrow in the simulation to take you to the role of the patient, James Parker.

· Note the decisions you make along with their effects.

· Write a 1- to 2-page reflection paper describing the process you went through and the results you got based on the decisions you made as James. This paper must be written in APA format, typed in Times New Roman with 12-point font, double-spaced with 1-inch margins.

See the rubric for specific grading criteria.

Pathways to Safer Opioid Use Simulation and Reflection

The first section of the paper is called the
introduction, yet the paper does not have a heading that is labeled introduction. Instead, the title of the paper should be typed at the top of the first page (be sure to center the title, but put it in bold). In this section, you would start with an introductory paragraph. A well-written essay is similar to a trip. The introduction section is the planning stage where you determine the place, time, and method of travel. You might also include the order of the trip and stages of travel. The introduction is written in third person.

Decisions Made by James and the Effects Realized

This is the body of your paper. Paragraphs should be written describing specifically the decisions made by James during the simulation and the effects of those decisions. Make sure to specifically name the decision made. There are many decision points in the simulation and these should be addressed individually and make sure to state the effect of each decision. It is important you write down the decisions made during the simulation as next week James will make different decisions and compare the decisions from this week and next week and the varying resulting effects.

This writing is in third person also. An example, “When James arrived at the pharmacy, he decided to…….”. Do not say, “I decided to ….” You are explaining the decisions made by James. You will need additional references for any material you use that is not in the simulation. When writing, do not put all of the decisions in one paragraph. A good rule of thumb is four to six sentences per paragraph.


Always end with a conclusion where you summarize your paper and repeat the primary points. Remember that a well-written essay is like planning a trip. The introduction is the planning stage; the body is the journey. The conclusion allows the opportunity to reflect on where the journey has taken you. This is similar to reviewing the pictures you took on your trip and remembering the important places and experiences.
