Current Events Articles and Summaries: 3 summaries at 20 points each = 60 points

Students must use the same drug topic for all of the current events and research articles for the semester. If a student chose marijuana as their topic, then all articles must pertain to the topic of marijuana. The subtopic does not have to be the same (i.e., law, treatment, research, etc…). Once the student chooses the article, he/she must write a summary of the article. Please check with the instructor regarding your drug topic. There will be 3current events articles chosen throughout the semester. Students may use any website or resource for these current events articles. I highly recommend using the IUB libraries as a source for researching current events articles in the media. Students must write a summary of the article chosen. A rubric for the current events summaries is included. Your Turnitin match rate must be less than 15% - do not copy phrasing or use direct quotes from article – must put into your own wording. The summary should be written in narrative form addressing each of the following areas:

? Drug name

? Why the article was written (this may be your opinion)

? What population is being discussed 

? Who the drug is affecting (may be same as population being discussed, but likely more – all should be clearly stated)

? How all of the above mentioned are affected

? Summary of the article

? Why do you think this article is interesting

? Why did you choose this article?

When writing the summaries, follow these formatting directions:

1. Separate title page consisting of the following: name, date, title of article, title of drug topic

(oxycodone) when taken alongside antidepressants. The drug is prescribed to patients diagnosed with
depression along with other antidepressants like SSRIs, but research suggests that this class of drugs can
inhibit liver enzymes with the potential for heightened oxycodone in the blood and eventual overdose.
Discussed Population
The discussed population comprises patients with depression who experience chronic pain and
who take antidepressants (SSRIs) and oxycodone simultaneously. This combination is suspected to
increase accidental overdose risks.
Affected Population
The affected population is all those who receive either of two specific SSRIs, paro...
