ADDRESSING THE OPIOID CRISIS IN TENNESSEE

Each day in Tennessee, at least three people die from an opioid-related overdose, which is more than the number of daily traffic fatalities.

CONTRIBUTE TO THE MISSION

To address the opioid crisis, the Tennessee Department of Health along with the CDC and CAMHL is offering enrollment into QuizTime.

QuizTime is not like a traditional course. QuizTime has been designed to facilitate quiz questions as the content of the course rather than requiring in-depth learning followed by quizzing.

HOW DOES QUIZTIME WORK?

QuizTime is an online learning system consisting of highly relevant and practical content delivered one question a day, one concept at a time, using a web-app quizzing platform. The QuizTime approach is a highly effective way to learn, based on repetition and retrieval of core concepts spaced out over time. Rather than a single information-dense presentation, QuizTime delivers “micro-chunks” of knowledge in the context of the clinical situations where the knowledge will be used.
