Substance misuse is common among patients in primary care settings. Although it has a substantial health impact, physicians report low levels of preparedness to identify and assist patients with substance use disorders. During this one-hour Webinar, you will be given an overview of the assessment and treatment of substance misuse in primary care.
Join guest speakers Dr. Michael Caudle and Dr. Parinda Khatri from Cherokee Health Systems in Knoxville, Tenn., as they provide details on screening recommendations, processes and intervention strategies, such as motivational interviewing. They will also offer guidance for beneficiaries discussing substance use patterns with their healthcare providers.
