Quiz for a Cause: Opioids and Responsible Prescribing (NEW!)

The opioid crisis stems from the misuse and addiction to both prescription and nonprescription opioids, including drugs like oxycodone, heroin, and fentanyl. While overall national opioid dispensing rates have declined since 2012, the most recent counts show that over 140 million opioid prescriptions continue to be dispensed yearly.

The scope of the crisis has led to a strain on health care systems, increased demand for addiction treatment services, and a significant economic burden. Tackling the opioid crisis requires a comprehensive approach that involves health care workers, policymakers, law enforcement, and society at large to mitigate its devastating effects and implement sustainable solutions for prevention, treatment, and recovery.

Introducing Quiz for a Cause: Opioids and Responsible Prescribing—a free question bank designed to educate you on opioid pharmacology, opioid use disorder and its treatment, opioid toxicity and withdrawal, and responsible prescribing.

Quiz for a Cause: Social Media

First introduced just over 30 years ago, smartphones are now being used by over 6 billion people worldwide. These devices, and the social media platforms on them, help us stay connected with family and friends, entertain us, and provide us with a never-ending stream of information with the touch of a screen.

Seven of 10 people in the United States use social media, including 40% of children 8–12 years old and nearly 90% of children 12–15 years old. These platforms are built on pervasive technology that is created specifically to capture and keep our attention. While there are benefits to social media, increasing research shows excessive time on these platforms is associated with poor sleep hygiene, depression, anxiety, and body image issues.

Introducing Quiz for a Cause: Social Media—a free question bank designed to educate you on the neuroscience behind social media construction and use, its effects on mental health, the unintended consequences of social media, and techniques to improve your relationship with screens.

Quiz for a Cause: Inclusive Language 

Inclusive language is just like it sounds—language that makes people feel included. In medicine, the way we discuss and address patients matters because all people deserve to feel seen and included. Using inclusive language can help patients feel respected, no matter their race or ethnicity, sexuality, gender, age, ability, or socioeconomic status.

Introducing Quiz for a Cause: Inclusive Language, a free question bank designed to educate you on ways to reframe traditionally biased language. Use this information to reflect on how you talk to and about patients and their conditions, and think about how you might make a difference in yourself, your colleagues, and your field. These guidelines will not pertain to every patient and every medical scenario, as individuals may have their own preferences about the language they use to refer to themselves or their loved ones. Often, the best solution is to directly ask the patient for their preferred terms. Working together, we can make a difference in medical language and improve patient-centered care.

Every Rosh Review Qbank question is written using inclusive language, following the guidelines outlined in our evolving inclusive language guide. To learn more about inclusive language in medical and health education, head to the Rosh Review Inclusive Language site, or view the video below:

Quiz for a Cause: Interpersonal Violence and Sexual Assault

Every 73 seconds in the United States, an individual is sexually assaulted. Yet, only 5 out of every 1,000 perpetrators will be held accountable.

Every year in the United States alone, there are an estimated 433,000 victims of sexual violence. In their lifetime, 1 in every 3 women and 1 in every 8 men can expect to become victims of sexual violence, and only about 30% of these cases will ever be reported to law enforcement.

We know that victims of sexual violence utilize healthcare services at higher rates than non-victims, giving us a unique perspective and opportunity to identify, screen, and intervene, helping to prevent further physical and emotional trauma while encouraging victims to heal toward their best selves. Statistically speaking, regardless of your specialty or practice environment, you are likely to see patients who are unrecognized or undisclosed victims of sexual violence. Do you know how to screen for, identify, and respond to sexual violence when you see it?

Quiz for a Cause: Human Trafficking

Victims of human trafficking—about 24.9 million worldwide—are trapped in captivity, hidden in plain sight in the places we live, work, and patronize.

We know that many of these people will present for health services at least once while in captivity, giving us a rare opportunity to identify and intervene, preventing further physical and emotional trauma. Statistically speaking, you’ve probably seen patients who are unrecognized victims of sex or labor trafficking. Do you know how to screen for, identify, and respond to human trafficking when you see it?
