Professional Development: Key Findings from the 2018 College Prescription Drug Study
The staff of the Center for the Study of Student Life & Student Wellness Center at Ohio State University will present a brief overview of findings from the College Prescription Study (CPDS). The CPDS is a study that examines the non-medical use of prescription drugs, including the reasons for and consequences of use, access to prescription drugs, and perceptions of use among students at 25 institutions. The session features a discussion of what they have learned from the study and campuses can use the findings of the study to both better understand their students and to influence prevention and recovery efforts on their campus.
