Evaluating Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Knowledge in Medical Education: A Collaborative Project.
Griffin, John B., Jr.
Journal of Medical Education, v58 n11 p859-63 Nov 1983
Medical students performed less well on examinations about drug abuse problems and patient management than on traditional medical board examinations. The best knowledge was of pharmacology of drug abuse, Alcoholics Anonymous, and treatment of delirium tremens. Students knew less about metabolic and biochemical areas, emergency-room treatment, and legal issues. (MSE)
