Outpatient Alcohol Withdrawal Management: A Tool for Global Practice Settings
ICUDDR, ISSUP and ISAM are pleased to present their collaborative webinar on Outpatient Alcohol Withdrawal Management: A Tool for Global Practice Settings.
Outpatient Alcohol Withdrawal Management: A Tool for Global Practice Settings was developed by a small group of volunteer subject matter experts who witnessed a sharp increase in the number and severity of alcohol use disorders (AUD) and alcohol withdrawal syndrome corresponding with the onset and aftermath of the COVID epidemic.
The volunteers spanned four time zones and three countries, meeting during lunch hours, early mornings, and after work hours. They developed an easy-to-use tool that summarizes the best practices for managing alcohol withdrawal in outpatient practice settings.
During the webinar, participants will learn:
- How to use the Global Tool to quickly understand the must do’s for assessing and treating alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS) in outpatient practice settings;
- When to treat patients with AWS in an outpatient level of care and when to refer patients to a higher level of care;
- How to start local conversations to plan and implement an effective AWS plan of care.
