Preparing a CANVA Infographic

CANVA is a free platform to create documents that are used to illustrate and present concepts and information. You can use words and images to convey ideas to create the desired information piece. This link will take you to the website with instructions on how to develop your document:

For this task, explore the use and abuse of drugs taken for chronic pain (known as analgesics) and compare narcotic analgesics (those prescribed by a physician) with OTC analgesics. You will create an infographic that includes the following:
· The category of the prescription pain medication
· The risks associated with the specific medication
· The routes of administration for these particular drugs
· The manner of absorption
· The site of action
· The prime effects including effective on mood and emotion as well as side effects of these drugs
· The effects of OTC pain relievers
· The risks of developing a substance use disorder and description of how it typically occurs
· The age groups most likely to abuse this substance
· The recommendations that would be made to professional groups including the medical profession
After you have created your infographic, write a summary that uses your critical thinking skills to discuss whether these drugs are sufficiently controlled by current law and what can be done to prevent or minimize addiction to prescription drugs.

Length: The infographic should be 3-5 pages, including the summary.

Resources: Your infographic should be supported by reference to at least 3 articles published in peer-reviewed journals in the past 5 years. You may also find additional information at the NIDA InfoFacts website. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
Your infographic should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.
