This event is a video conference that will broadcast from Northcoast Behavioral Healthcare in Northfield, Ohio, to multiple sites around the state. Attend at a site near you (see "locations" tab).
Registration deadline has been extended to Friday, March 23.
Patients with severe mental illness or co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders in hospital settings may have multiple reasons for seeking potentially addictive medications (such as benzodiazepines and opiates). Likewise, hospital staff may have differing knowledge levels, attitudes, and skills in how they manage these patients on a day-to-day basis. This training will focus on the differential diagnosis of the drug-seeking patient, the assessment of acute vs. chronic pain, and the management of drug-seeking behaviors in an inpatient setting. Additionally, there will be time for case discussion and a focus on using the principles of Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT), the evidence-based practice, in the treatment of this challenging clinical population.
Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to.... List the differential diagnosis of the "drug-seeking" patient. Review how the treatment of acute pain differs from the treatment of chronic pain. Discuss how the principles and strategies of IDDT can assist in the management of the "drug-seeking patient". SUPPORTING MATERIALS
