The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the NIH, is pleased to introduce two new, science-based resources through its NIDAMED initiative to help healthcare professionals manage patients at risk for substance use disorders, including prescription drug abuse.
The American College of Physicians (ACP) now houses an Addressing Substance Use online module that can be used to help with implementing screening, counseling, and referral to treatment.
Also, the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) are now offering opioid and pain management courses.
