The format for this curriculum guide, written for nurse practitioner faculty, consists of learning objectives, content outline, teaching methodology suggestions, references and recommended readings. Part 1 of the guide, Recognition of Early and Chronic Alcoholism, deals with features of alcoholism such as epidemiological data and theories, definitions, attitudes, and approaches to alcoholism; special populations and their needs; and biophysical and psychosocial consequences of alcoholism. Part 2, Diagnosis of Early and Chronic Alcoholism, addresses the assessment and diagnosis of alcoholism in a primary care setting, with emphasis on the assessment interview. Part 3, Management of Early and Chronic Alcoholism, deals with strategies used in the recovery process, e.g., mobilization, and formulation of a treatment plan. Specific treatment methods are covered, with the presentation of the phases of recovery, (initial detoxification followed by long-term rehabilitation, and aftercare). Family needs and problems during the recovery of the alcoholic family member are also addressed. A list of resources and audiovisual materials, the Short Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test, tables presenting major and minor Criteria for the Diagnosis of Alcoholism, a chart of Effects of Alcoholism on the Family, and the Seaman-Manello Scale (Form B) of Nurses' Attitudes Toward Alcohol and Alcoholism are appended.
