Training days

We advise you complete the elearning module before the training day, because it includes pre course learning which will ensure you get the most out of group discussions on the day.

Training day content covers:

  • evidence-based good practice in the treatment of drug using patients
  • National Clinical Guidelines and the policies and guidance to PCTs in relation to quality care through enhanced services
  • the benefits of working effectively with others in a multi disciplinary context and the roles of other professional disciplines
  • harm reduction strategies
  • equal opportunity issues related to the treatment of drug using patients in general practice.

Participants will be made aware of their individual learning needs in the recognition of substance misuse issues in general practice as well as exploring the range of treatment options and discussing strategies for overcoming the barriers to drug using patients accessing treatment.

Case studies include:

  • an assessment of need in relation to a drug using patient
  • implementing a process of initiating a drug using patient on to medication prescribed for the purposes of treating substance misuse.

In order to complete and receive the Part 1 Certificate, candidates are required to attend a training day and complete one elearning module within a six month period.
