Stop Judging, Start Healing: 
The Provider’s Vital Role in Breaking the Cycle of Stigma

Presented by the Medical Association of the State of Alabama, VitAL – The University of Alabama, Alabama Medicaid Agency, and Alabama Department of Mental Health

4-HOUR COURSE: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2021 – 12:45 P.M. – 5:15 P.M.

STATEMENT OF NEED
The World Health Organization has classified stigma as having a detrimental effect on the treatment of individuals who have a socially undesirable trait or engage in culturally marginalized behaviors.  Stigma around substance use disorder is a huge barrier to treatment and recovery. When people with addiction are stigmatized and discarded within healthcare, it only promotes the vicious cycle that is embedded in their disease.  An effort must be made to normalize destigmatized language when referring to substance use and individuals with substance use disorders.  Providers have a unique opportunity to break the cycle of stigma within their clinic and practice through training in compassionate and knowledgeable care for people with substance use disorders.  Therefore, information presented in this seminar will include an overview of stigma, impacts of stigma, importance of language choices, and strategies that healthcare providers can employ to proactively address stigma.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

The course on breaking the cycle of stigma is designed for physicians, certified registered nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives and physician assistants who are interested in supporting the total health and well-being of their patients, developing compassion, and an understanding of stigma of individuals with mental health illness, substance, and opioid use disorders.

INTENSIVE COURSE IN PRESCRIBING AND PHARMACOLOGY OF CONTROLLED DRUGS:

CRITICAL ISSUES AND COMMON PITFALLS

Presented by the Medical Association of the State of Alabama, the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners and the Alabama Board of Nursing

12-HOUR COURSE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20 – SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 21
STATEMENT OF NEED
     Controlled substances are prescribed and dispensed today at an increasing rate to help patients cope with pain, insomnia, anxiety, depression, ADHD and a myriad of other disorders.  Studies show that most practitioners are rather conservative when prescribing controlled drugs, while a small number are at times overly aggressive.  In addition, controlled substance medications are falling into the hands of increasing numbers of prescription drug abusers.
     How can the practitioner more effectively understand the pharmacologic profiles for controlled drugs, identify diagnostic criteria for appropriate prescribing and consider the therapeutic implications of specific substance use by individual patients?  This special intensive course has been developed to enhance the physician’s ability to effectively prescribe controlled medications, while minimizing their misuse whenever possible.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
     The course in Prescribing and Pharmacology of Controlled Drugs is designed for physicians in all specialties, as well as physician assistants, certified registered nurse practitioners and nurse midwives, who need or wish to increase their knowledge and ability to effectively prescribe controlled medications that have the potential for misuse and abuse.
