New CSI eRepository entry on Opioid OD resuscitation (and a "How-it-was-built" breakdown!)

Please feel free to peruse a new CSI eRepository entry titled: "Objective Structured Clinical Examination Skill Station Is Effective for Assessing Acute Opioid Overdose Resuscitation" (Authors: Matthew P. Abrams , Martin Klapheke). Not only does it promote proper assessment of acute opioid overdose resuscitation, but it also breaks down the construction of the module, a "how-to", which may prove helpful to aspiring CSI module writers!
