Management of Alcohol Use Disorder

October 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT

Please join the National Clinician Consultation Center (NCCC) in partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Bureau of Primary Health Care for this interactive webinar for Health Center clinicians. Unhealthy alcohol use remains a growing public health issue in the United States, contributing significantly to the global burden of disease and posing challenges to the everyday practice of primary care.  In this webinar, we will define the spectrum of unhealthy alcohol use and compare therapeutic approaches, focusing on pharmacological treatment options.  We will also provide strategies for managing withdrawal, an especially important issue during COVID-19.  Following this webinar, participants will be able to more confidently assess and care for patients with unhealthy alcohol use.

Participants will:

  1. Recognize the detection problem and treatment gap facing patients with alcohol use disorder
  2. Relate alcohol use as a critical and potentially modifiable risk factor for clinical outcomes
  3. Expand the toolbox of evidenced-based pharmacologic and psychosocial treatment strategies for alcohol use disorder
  4. Describe outpatient withdrawal management and considerations that have been raised in response to an evolving care delivery landscape
