Addictive disorders are a significant contributor to the global burden of disease. Despite this, only a small proportion of people with addictive disorders receive appropriate, evidence- based care and management.
The WPA Addictive Disorders learning resource has been developed with an aim to strengthen the evidence-based management of addictive disorders.
Dr Balhara, Dr Sarkar and Dr Kathiresan make up the Faculty behind this comprehensive curriculum that covers 8 modules, a list of suggested readings and an opportunity for participants to assess their knowledge through a set of multiple choice questions.
