Substance Abuse Curriculum Development in Family Medicine: An Instructors' Manual in Two Parts.
Society for Teachers of Family Medicine, Kansas City, MO.
This instructor's manual is a practical guide to a faculty development training program on substance abuse within family medicine emphasizing a meshing of individual curriculum projects by participants with group instruction and support. Organized into two parts the manual describes the training program in detail in Part 1 and provides 10 actual curriculum examples in Part 2. The training program description includes a section on how to use the manual, an exposition of the program's philosophy, suggestions for evaluation, a list of the faculty resources materials and facilities needed to run the program, suggestions for adapting the program, and practical hints for a successful program. The curriculum examples in Part Two are grouped according to educational level including undergraduate (e.g., improving early diagnosis of substance abuse by medical students), residency (e.g., the impaired health professional), faculty (e.g., a curriculum in substance abuse for family practice faculty), and two applicable to all levels (e.g., how to stay sober and serene in dealing with alcoholic patients). Each curriculum is outlined listing such elements as rationale, objectives, activity sequences, instructional resources, evaluation strategies, hints to the instructor, and an appendix of key materials.
