Addressing the Barriers to Medical Treatment for AUD
Alcohol use disorder (AUD) has a significant burden on patients and their loved ones. AUD is treatable with medication and psychosocial counseling; however, patients with AUD are undertreated particularly in the primary care setting. This case challenge activity will replicate real-world practice and provide evidence-based treatment recommendations for AUD, including pharmacotherapy, along with supporting expert commentary. Cases include diagnosing a patient resistant to accepting an AUD diagnosis in addition to managing a patient with complex comorbidities. Gain confidence in identifying and managing patients with AUD and motivate your patients to follow through with seeking, recommending, and adhering to treatment.
