Lewis University DNP Student Examines Naloxone Policy in Illinois

Published: November 27, 2017.

The Law Enforcement Executive Forum Journal recently published an article written by Lorna Dudzik, a student in Lewis University’s Doctorate of Nursing Practice program.

The article is titled “Naloxone Administration by Law Enforcement Officers in Illinois: A Policy Analysis.” Dudzik examines the comprehensive policy, current status and legislative impact of law enforcement’s compliance issues with naloxone, a life-saving resuscitative drug intervention for opioid overdoses.

Dudzik's LEO naloxone policy analysis was a result of a Healthcare Policy course taught by Dr. Michele Riley Kramer, associate professor in the Lewis University Nursing and Health Professions. A timely topic for law enforcement and emergency medical personnel, the paper met the LEEF’s criteria of quality, originality of the research and its significance to today’s law enforcement leadership environment.

The Doctorate of Nursing Practice degree is the terminal practice degree for the profession of nursing. The 30-credit hour program builds upon advanced clinical skills with coursework on quality improvement, evidence-based performance, and systems approaches to meeting healthcare needs of the public.
