Resource Manual for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Education in Family Medicine Medical School and Residency Programs. Final Report.
Society for Teachers of Family Medicine, Kansas City, MO.
This manual of resources for alcohol and other drug abuse education in medical schools and residency programs establishes basic learning goals, and objectives for teaching drug abuse units that reflect the philosophy of family medicine. The manual was developed using data and curriculum material collected through a detailed curriculum survey of the members of the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine. After a first chapter outlining the minimum knowledge and skill goals for all practicing physicians, a second chapter delineates knowledge and skill objectives for alcohol and other drug abuse teaching particular to family medicine. The third chapter suggests a model for integrating the objectives of knowledge, skill and attitude into an over all curriculum. Chapter 4, Learning Experiences and Strategies, includes an analysis of the data gathered by the curriculum survey. A fifth chapter on evaluation principles and methods includes an example of an evaluation assessment tool. The last chapter, Curriculum Examples, describes a few actual programs in depth and includes a contact person, telephone number and address for each. An extensive final section, titled Learning Materials, contains a bibliography of approximately 125 items, a list of 32 audiovisual materials, and a list of 10 resource institutions providing educational materials.
