The curriculum guide and bibliography identifies the minimum skills, knowledge, and attitudes that emergency physicians should have relative to drug and alcohol abuse and identifies appropriate educational materials and strategies for medical schools to include in their training programs. Objectives were based on 73 survey responses from medical schools and residency programs in emergency medicine. The 45 identified objectives are grouped into the following six categories: (1) general issues; (2) diagnosis and recognition of alcohol and other drug abuse; (3) management of alcohol or other drug abuse; (4) complications; (5) special populations and substance abuse; and (6) physican impairment. A review of over 200 reference materials resulted in a bibliography of 76 recommended items. Included for each item in the bibliography are the specific objectives to which the material pertains, standard bibliographic data, a brief description, and the educational level (undergraduate and/or graduate) for which the material is appropriate. There is also a materials/objectives matrix which provides a quick guide to the materials that address each of the six categories of objectives. (DB)
