Addiction Medicine

Addiction is a chronic, relapsing illness that is difficult to cure. GPs and other primary care professionals have a key role to play in prevention, early detection and management of substance misuse and addiction.

This one day Active Learning Module (ALM) developed by RACGP Queensland aims to develop GPs' skills in recognising and treating patients who present with drug addictions. The workshop will cover many of the dominant addictive substances seen in general practice including alcohol, benzodiazepines, cannabis, opioids and other psychostimulant drugs.

We will look at physical, psychological and legal issues surrounding these drugs, the patients who use them and the role and responsibilities of the general practitioner. Prescribing guidelines and comorbidities will also be covered.

This workship is accredited for 40 Category 1 QI&CPD points for the 2014-16 triennium.
