SUD 101 Core Curriculum Gives
Solid Foundation to Primary Care Providers
PCSS has developed a 22-module core curriculum designed to educate healthcare professionals on the prevention, assessment and treatment of substance use disorders (SUD) throughout the continuum of care. The modules explore such topics as screening, stigma, motivational interviewing, alcohol, tobacco, and opioid use disorders to name a few. The course provides a comprehensive introduction and overview of SUDs and co-occurring mental disorders for all health professionals.

The curriculum is specifically designed to provide evidence-based practices in the prevention and treatment of SUD and supports interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP) in healthcare delivery. Three addiction clinical experts—David Fiellin, MD; Michelle Lofwall, MD; and Larissa Mooney, MD, led  a team of healthcare professionals to develop this 22-module core curriculum. While the field of medicine has made recent efforts to incorporate some training on addiction, the large majority of healthcare professionals have received few hours of education. This course is meant to introduce the foundation of information needed on all substance use disorders in addressing this public health crisis. [ Read more ]
