SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER EDUCATION FOR FAMILY PHYSICIANS
SUD Education For Clinicians and Training Programs
Like it or not, patients who misuse or abuse legal and illegal substances are in your practice right now. Substance Use Disorder – what it is and how to treat it – is critical knowledge for any family physician. NJAFP and NJSAM have come together to distill the mountains of information available into an easy to digest education program designed specifically for family physicians.
Identifying SUD and individualizing treatment modalities
- Treatment principles and their application
- Treatment settings
- Motivational Interviewing
Biology of addiction
- Addiction as a chronic disease
- Medication-Assisted Therapy
- SUD urgencies/emergencies
- Common drugs associated with SUD
Funded by SAMHSA (2019-2021), NJAFP and NJSAM have developed a comprehensive substance use disorder curriculum for family medicine residency program sites in New Jersey. Residency programs currently do not have a standardized curriculum – some programs have robust training, some have sessions here and there, others have no training. This curriculum is designed to help programs formally blend SUD education into already full training schedules and mesh with any existing SUD programming.
