Why Attend?
Nurses are in contact with people suffering from addiction illnesses in a variety of healthcare settings.

Attend this highly interactive seminar and find out:
• The brain and addiction
• Factors that tip the scales toward addiction

• Withdrawal management
• Harm reduction and resources
• Pharmaceutical misuse and addiction
• Communicating effectively with people who have an addiction and much, much more

Need for Program:
Addiction is a growing problem; with alcohol and other substance misuse now considered a major public health problem. Nurses in a range of specialities and settings are very likely to come into contact with people who have an addiction. The consequences for the individual and those around them are significant. Understanding addiction, how it affects people and the latest evidence and principles for effective management is essential to the recovery of those people who have addiction in order to minimise harm.

Purpose of Program:
The purpose of this seminar is to provide nurses with the latest knowledge and skills for effective practice when caring for people who exhibit signs or are known to be affected by an addiction.

Learning Outcomes:
• Use essential evidence-based knowledge and assessment skills during any patient encounter for the early recognition of and appropriate response to addiction
• Understand the physiology and psychology of behaviours, emotions, and motivations associated with addictions to implement patient-centred care in any setting that enhances recovery and prevents harm
• Use appropriate interviewing and communication techniques with people who have a history of addiction to facilitate treatment or progress in recovery
• Practice best evidence relating to treatment and management of withdrawal and detoxification to facilitate a safe outcome for the patient
