National Center for Alcohol Education, Arlington, VA.
This paper describes a pilot workshop curriculum on alcohol, drug abuse, and related mental health problems for primary care providers, e.g., physicians, physician assistants, or nurse practitioners, developed by the National Center for Alcohol Education. Pilot workshops held in Michigan and North Carolina are presented. Methods of needs assessment are discussed and the resulting curriculum is summarized. The two-day workshops, consisting of six sessions on the topics of recognition, interviewing, patient motivation, and case management options, are described. Educational methods and instructional techniques are discussed, including presentations, case applications, general, panel, and peer group discussions, faculty reviews, lectures, and videotapes. The selection of faculty members for the pilot workshops is outlined with selection criteria. A workshop evaluation section includes a discussion of evaluation methods and findings. A section on the analysis of experience focuses on specific workshop learnings, including the strengths and weaknesses of the program. Program implementation, participant recruitment, needs assessment, faculty selection, evaluation, and curriculum delivery are analyzed. The appendices include telephone survey results as well as sample forms for interviews and pre-and post-course evaluations. (NRB)
