Abstract:

  • The growth of a global Network of Early Career Professionals working in Addiction Medicine (NECPAM) - Dr Nirvana Morgan

One of the greatest challenges in the field of addiction medicine is the development of a lasting workforce. Therefore in 2017, the global Network of Early Career Professionals working in the area of Addiction Medicine (NECPAM) was formed. NECPAM's mission is to connect, empower and facilitate the evolution of early career professionals working in the field of addiction and related disorders worldwide. We achieve this by facilitating peer-led research and practical initiatives at both local and international levels – working towards reducing the stigma associated with addiction and related disorders. Since the networks inception we have grown in membership, conducted research, shared knowledge and supported one another during the difficult time of the COVID-19 pandemic. NECPAM's future plans are focused on identifying and meeting the education and training needs of early career professionals, partnership and collaborations with other networks and continued growth. NECPAM wishes to make a lasting and meaningful contribution to the global challenge of addiction. The presentation will share insights about the network's aims, activities and outputs as well as invite collaboration for future initiatives.
