The ASAM Alcohol Withdrawal Management Webinar Series – Fundamentals 


This is the first webinar of The ASAM Alcohol Withdrawal Management Webinar Series. Click here to access the full series of 5 webinars, worth a total of 5 CME (1 CME/webinar).

Alcohol is responsible for a multitude of health conditions, including Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS). While frequently presented in specialty addiction treatment settings, patients experiencing or at risk for developing AWS also receive care in hospitals, emergency departments, and primary care settings. The current management of patients with AWS is inconsistent across care settings and evidence-based care is often not provided. The ASAM Clinical Practice Guideline on Alcohol Withdrawal Management was developed to address current practice concerns and provide clear guidance that will lead to more consistent treatment practices in the field.

The first of its series, this session outlines the highlights of the ASAM Clinical Practice Guideline on Alcohol Withdrawal Management, and addresses related concerns raised during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
