  • Nurse

    Identify the pharmacodynamic effects (all three proposed mechanisms of action) and pharmacokinetic parameters (absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion) of methadone.
    Given a simulated opioid-naïve, or opioid-tolerant patient, recognize a starting methadone dose that reflects patient- and methadone-specific variables.
    Given a simulated case of a patient starting or receiving methadone, recognize a course of action when the patient is taking or will begin taking a medication known to interact with methadone.
    Given a simulated case of a patient receiving methadone, identify best practices to monitor the patient’s response to therapy (therapeutic and potential toxicity).
