Providing up to date information about drugs and alcohol, screening tools, early detection strategies and treatment options.
Problematic substance use is a chronic, relapsing condition which is difficult to treat. GPs and other primary care professionals have a key role to play in prevention, early detection and management of substance misuse and dependence.
This three-hour face to face training opportunity for General Practitioners aims to provide GPs with the skills to confidently identify problematic substance use by using appropriate screening tools, formulate early detection strategies, apply safe drinking guidelines and apply alcohol withdrawal principles.
Topics covered in the training include:
- Withdrawal management principles
- Withdrawal management and case planning
- Withdrawal for alcohol
- Withdrawal for opioids
- Withdrawal – other
- Case studies.
The GP Addiction Medicine Education Program is delivered in partnership with Coordinaire and the South Eastern NSW Primary Health Network (PHN).
