Integrating Opioid Use Disorder Treatment in Clinical Care
SUD 101 Core Curriculum Overview

Curriculum overview:  While healthcare professionals are often on the front lines of treating substance use disorders, most have limited (if any) training in this area. The SUD 101 Core Curriculum was created to provide a foundation of the current research, resources, and support needed to increase healthcare professionals’ competence and confidence in the care of their patients across the continuum of care. This activity, Integrating Opioid Use Disorder Treatment in Clinical Care, is part of the 23-module curriculum. Please see below for a summary of module 6 out of 23:
