FREE Substance Use Disorder Educational Courses, Brochures & Posters from NCSBN
NCSBN BOD President Katherine Thomas, MN, RN, FAAN, executive director, Texas Board of Nursing, comments, "The chronic and complex disease of substance use disorder (SUD) is an issue of importance to U.S. boards of nursing because of the potential harm to patient welfare. Cognizant of the opioid crisis and substance use disorder’s societal impact, NCSBN is responding to the American Public Health Association’s call to action to implement evidence-based provider training programs in substance use disorder."
NCSBN’s SUD toolkit, brochures, posters, a book and two continuing education (CE) courses was developed to assure that nurses are armed with knowledge to help identify the warning signs of SUD in patients, nurses and the general public and provide guidelines for prevention, education and intervention.
Now all of these resources are available free of charge from www.ncsbn.org. Both CE courses award contact hours upon successful completion. Register for the courses at www.learningext.com. In addition the toolkit includes the “Substance Use Disorder in Nursing” resource manual, the “Substance Use Disorder in Nursing” video, prevention-focused posters for health care facilitates and two brochures, “What You Need to Know About Substance Use Disorder in Nursing” and “A Nurse Manager’s Guide to Substance Use Disorder in Nursing.”
