This live virtual workshop is designed to be energetic and interactive. Sessions throughout the series will include lecture, demonstration of skills and skill building.
Addiction is a disease that continues to devastate our communities, but there are treatments available to help patients. Participants of this workshop will learn more about addiction medicine and how to screen, diagnose, treat, and/or refer patients with addiction – many of whom are already being seen for commonly occurring medical and psychiatric comorbidities.
The target audience for this introductory level activity include: Physicians, Nurse Practitioners/Nurses, Physician Assistants, Counselors, and Other healthcare providers.
This activity addresses the following ACGME Competencies: Patient Care and Procedural Skills, Practice-based Learning and Improvement, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism, and Systems-based Practice.
Upon completion, learners will be able to:
- Identify your own feelings and attitudes that promote or prevent therapeutic responses to patients with substance use disorders
- Explain what occurs in the brain of a person with substance use disorder in terms of the brain's neurobiology
- Use validated patient screening tools to detect substance use and interpret a spectrum of results
- Use motivational interviewing to enhance patients' readiness to change risky behaviors
- Offer the interventions that are appropriate to specific substances and severity of usage patterns
- Respond to hazardous drinking with brief counseling strategies appropriate to the patient's readiness to change
- For patients suspected of having a SUD, conduct a biopsychosocial assessment to provide a diagnosis and match the patient to an appropriate level of care
- Prescribe pharmacotherapy appropriately for alcohol, tobacco, and opioid use disorders
