SIG: Something New at the 2023 Summer Forum
What is SIG:
  • Special Interest Groups are small networking, informal discussion hubs designed to bring together meeting participants with common interest in a particular topic relevant to the practice of family medicine

  • SIGs are designed for voluntary participation with the purpose of focusing on a single topic, where participants can discuss, disseminate information, and share ideas about the topic at hand.

What is SIG’s Goal?
  • Provide a forum for individuals who have common interest on a specific topic, or who want to be with others and are willing to share their views and best practices, or simply have a free exchange of ideas regarding the topic of focus.

2023 Summer Forum SIG Topics:
SIG Topic 1: Urgent Care (Facilitator: Dr. Tracey Davidoff)
SIG Topic 2: Hospital Medicine (Facilitator: Dr. Andrew Buelt)
Date: Saturday, July 1, 2023

FAFP to Launch Educational Courses to Help FAFP Members Meet New DEA Training Requirement
The FAFP Foundation Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Committee is in the process of developing educational modules on Substance Use Disorder (SUD) that will help FAFP members meet the new Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) one-time requirement for eight hours of training on the treatment and management of patients with opioid or other substance use disorders. The new educational library will serve as a one-stop shop for family physicians to facilitate the process for DEA-registered providers to earn the required education.

As with all FAFP online educational programming, the courses will be offered at no cost to FAFP members and can be taken at your own convenience. 

The following online enduring materials will be available to all FAFP members starting the third week of June (approximately June 19, 2023):

  • Introduction to Substance Use Disorder
  • Opioid Use Disorder: Primary Care Review (Buprenorphine Basics)
  • Substance Use in Adolescence
  • Addiction & Trauma: The Perfect (Brain)Storm
  • The Treatment of Tobacco Use Disorder
  • The Fentanyl Crisis from a Law Enforcement Officer's Perspective
  • Florida Mandatory: Controlled Substance Prescribing (already available)

Click here for course learning objectives and SAMHSA core curriculum elements.
Announcement will be made as soon as the modules are available, so please stay tuned. For FAQs regarding the new DEA requirement, please click here.
