The purpose of this series of animations is to improve emergency department care for patients after an opioid overdose or for patients who have opioid use disorder. The brief animations (6 animations of approximately 1.5 minutes each) addresses issues such as, prescribing and educating patients about naloxone, recognizing opioids withdrawals and prescribing buprenorphine, referring patients for treatment, and language and stigma.
I was brought in as a project manager and illustrator to bring the content expert's ideas into motion.
TESTIMONIAL
"We are a  team of researchers involved in addressing the opioid crisis. We know what we wanted to do- produce brief but informative animations about topics important in addressing the opioid crisis- but we had no idea how to do this. Anne guided us through the process, listened to our suggestions, guided us in how to write scripts, and produced beautiful and engaging animations that really captures what we wanted them to be about. The animations that Anne produced have been reviewed by individuals who are public health officials, individuals with lived experience of opioid use and opioid overdose, physicians who treat patients, and researchers. Everyone has been so impressed with Anne’s work and with the essence of the important  messages captured in these brief animations."
