Opioid Overdose Crisis in Canada
Start your paper with an introduction, possibly 1-2 paragraphs in length that outlines the purpose and scope of the paper. The main body of the paper is next. What is the opioid overdose crisis in Canada all about. This part of the paper should contain the most current epidemiological evidence around the rates of opioid overdoses in Canada and the trend for opioid overdoses in the past 10-15 years.
Explain the rationale for the trend and support this with credible references.
What populations groups are most represented by opioid overdoses?
Are rates for opioid overdoses higher in some parts of Canada when compared to other geographical areas in Canada?
Discuss reasons for the regional differences and make sure to support your discussions with reputable references. How does the rates in Canada compare to other countries?
In the next section of the paper develop a teaching project with a specific target population to address this health issue. Clearly stating the age range that will be the focus of your teaching, explain why you have chosen this age group and explain how you plan to reach your target population.
Identify a goal that you want your target population to achieve by the health teaching.
Be sure to also list two objectives that are measurable in reaching the goal. Include in the teaching plan how you plan to evaluate the two objectives. The entire paper excluding the cover page, table of contents, if included, and reference list should be between 8-9 pages in length.
