DESCRIPTION: In our era we have competent physicians and healthcare workers in addiction medicine. The next step is that we need to transfer our knowledge to our colleagues and the next generation. Training in this field is often lacunar and patchy at under- and postgraduate level.

This 1 day fundamentals course will address conceptual and organisational aspects of addiction curricula, provide practical tools for preparing educational and evaluation material, and discuss and experiment different teaching methods.

The latter will include use of existing training material, assessing training needs, e-learning, portfolio development, inter-professional training, preparing teaching material and exams, identifying Entrustable Professional Activities (EPA’s), how to provide clinical feedback, etc. (See Table 1 and 2 for details of topics)

AUDIENCE:  The interactive course is developed for clinicians, teachers and policy makers from different disciplines who are interested in medical education and who want to improve addiction medicine training in their clinic, their university or at a governmental level. Please note some preparatory work is expected to be done before the training starts.

This means that this one day Fundamental course is highly relevant for all addiction medicine specialists and scientists who want to transfer their knowledge to the next generation, and for those who are already doing this and want to improve their skills in teaching.
