Pediatric Minimal Knowledge and Skills: The First Step in Developing a Curriculum in Alcohol and Other Drugs for Pediatricians.
Adger, Hoover; And Others
Based on an initial group of consensus statements developed at the Annenburg Center for Health Science Conference in November 1985, this resource manual for alcohol and other drug abuse education specifies minimum knowledge and skills levels for pediatric physicians. A first section details minimal knowledge and skills in alcohol and other drug abuse including general concepts, prevention, pharmacology and pathophysiology, patient evaluation, patient management, legal and ethical aspects, and impairment of health professionals. A section on teaching strategies recommends the use of a variety of modalities in order to effect change in trainees' knowledge, experience, and attitudes. In the next section frequent program and student evaluation is recommended for the most effective results. A final section treats some of the challenges to program implementation found within medical schools and the medical community at large and suggests strategies for dealing with those impediments. Includes 9 references. (JB)
