Sponsor: American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry
On-Demand training expiring on Nov. 15, 2024
Target Audience: This activity is designed to improve the competence, performance, and patient outcomes of physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners and other health care professionals. Learners will determine individual practice gaps and address them through a performance improvement plan. Learners will assess and evaluate performance techniques used in their practices.
Our goal: The overall objective of this activity is to guide you through the process of self-evaluation using evidence-based clinical quality measures. Once practices are implemented as an everyday clinical function, it is expected that you will have achieved performance change in your practice setting.
Educational objectives of this activity: At the conclusion of this activity, clinicians will be able to:
- Discuss epidemiology and terminology related to stimulant use
- Describe evidence-supported behavioral interventions for treatment of stimulant use disorder
- Identify evidence-supported medications for stimulant use disorder and compare their advantages and disadvantages
- Demonstrate improved performance in working with patients with stimulant use disorder
Core Competencies as a result of participating in this continuing education activity:
- Interpersonal Skills and Communication
- Medical Knowledge
- Patient Care
- Practice-based Learning and Improvement
We anticipate that completing this PIP activity will increase the likelihood that addiction specialists will offer and monitor high quality treatment for OUDs that can result in better patient-centered care and outcomes, a key theme in the development of this activity.
Patient-Centered Care: We anticipate that completing this PIP activity will increase the likelihood that addiction specialists will offer and monitor high quality treatment that can result in better patient-centered care and outcomes, a key theme in the development of this activity. Patient-centered care is defined by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, as: “helping people and their caregivers communicate and make informed health care decisions, allowing their voices to be heard in assessing the value of health care options.” Some questions that reflect patient-centered considerations include: (1) “Given my personal characteristics, conditions and preferences, what should I expect will happen to me?”; (2)“What are my options and what are the potential benefits and harms of those options?”; and (3) “What can I do to improve the outcomes that are most important to me?”. Consideration of patient priorities in weighing treatment options is essential to treatment success and recovery, and an integral part–along with the best research evidence and clinical expertise—of achieving high quality care and better outcomes. Patients should learn about both the efficacy and side effects of treatments and how these apply to them so they can make individualized decisions. The level of patient motivation, choice, and education about treatment options are all important factors to appropriate counseling, prescribing, adherence, and recovery.
