This is a four hour face-to-face training opportunity for GPs and GP Registrars working in the Nepean Blue Mountains PHN locality.
Addiction 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.
The workshop will look closely at:
- Withdrawal Management principles and case planning
- Withdrawal for alcohol and other drugs/pharmacotherapy
- Post withdrawal/detox strategies
- Case studies
A light working lunch will be provided.
