The ASAM Pain & Addiction Essentials Online
Module 3: Screening & Assessment

On-Demand Module

Overview

This 1-hour on-demand module covers widely available, validated, and practical screening and assessment tools for patients at risk for pain and addiction. The module also discusses barriers to effective and efficient use of these tools along with ways to address these barriers. Considerations for providing sensitive, patient-centered care in providing initial drug screenings and in on-going monitoring of substance use are also discussed.

This module is part of The ASAM Pain & Addiction Essentials, a series of 6 online modules that cover the foundations of pain and addiction including the science, stigma, screening and assessment, treatment, and interdisciplinary approaches. All modules can be taken together as a full 6-hour course or can be taken individually to fill learner knowledge gaps in pain and addiction topics. 

Learners looking for more advanced topics in pain and addiction should register for the Applied Skills Workshop (intermediate level) or the Common Threads Course (advanced level), learn more here

The target audience for this module includes: primary care physicians, fellows in training and residents, providers who are new to addiction medicine or are early in their career and other members of the care team who are looking for introductory topics on pain and addiction.
