Addiction and the carnage it causes has become an inescapable problem in recent years. In Illinois, the opioid-related death rate in 2016 was 15% higher than the national average, and opioid-related deaths increased by 43% from 2015 to 2016, significantly higher than the national rate increase of 27.9%. Primary care physicians are often on the front lines of battling addiction -- but do you know how to screen patients who may be struggling with addiction?
Join ISMS and Gateway Foundation Chief Medical Officer Dr. Roueen Rafeyan for a webinar that will discuss how to identify patients with substance use disorder in the primary care setting. Dr. Rafeyan will discuss the basics of addiction, including the neuro-circuitry of addiction, as well as best practices for identifying, approaching, and treating patients with substance use disorder.
At the conclusion of this learning activity, participants will be able to:
- Express basic knowledge about addiction
- Describe neuro-circuitry of addiction
- Identify patients with potential substance use disorder
- Discuss how to approach the patient with substance use disorder
- Discuss treatment options for patients with substance use disorder
