- What type of intervention was utilized?
- How were the participants selected?
- What were the modes of data collection, analysis, and interpretation?

Anytown is a simulation town:
Largest industry/employer is the coal mine
Coal mining operations have decreased in the past few years
Because of physical injuries, illnesses, and other ailments, opioids use has skyrocketed
Because of the economic downturn, opioid uses as a coping mechanism has dramatically increase
An opioid overdose emergency occurs almost daily, many times resulting in death
The mayor has declared the opioid crisis as the number one crisis the town is facing
The largest employer in Anytown
Over half of the employees have either qualified for workmanâ€™s compensation or have an illness related to their working conditions
The most common condition is black lung
Because this type of illness is directly related to working in the mine, working conditions need to be improved
