Abstract

Leadership (NRS412) students, at OHSU School of Nursing Monmouth Campus, built upon the work of their peers in Population Health (NRS410), to address the identified need for a drug and alcohol prevention program at a local rural elementary school. Students discovered the school could make improvements to meet Oregon’s Department of Education statute requiring public schools to deliver prevention education on drugs and alcohol (OAR 581-022-2045). Guided by the statute and community input, the authors conducted a review of the literature and national prevention efforts. They identified a skill based intervention and an awareness-raising campaign as effective approaches for drug and alcohol prevention. The aim of this performance improvement project was to create an instructional booklet to facilitate the implementation of an evidence-based drug and alcohol initiative by school officials. The Logic Model framework was used to guide the development, implementation, and evaluation of the program.The project’s short-term outcome is to gain active engagement from staff and students. The initiative will be evaluated long-term by the reduction of drug and alcohol use in the community.
