The Course on Addiction and Recovery Education (CARE) is a collaboration between MedU and world-class addiction treatment organizations, the Betty Ford Center (a part of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation), the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), and Treatment Research Institute (TRI). Substance use disorders and addiction is a growing problem in the health care system. The lack of formal education surrounding this topic has left many practicing physicians and healthcare professionals inadequately prepared to assess, intervene, manage, and treat patients.
Several virtual patient cases and 14 video modules have been created to focus on the most common and critical addiction and substance use topics that medical students and healthcare professionals need to be prepared to address. These modules and videos are designed to be used in conjunction with or as stand-alone segments in current medical school curriculums.
CARE is available via subscription.
