New Healthcare Professional’s Core Resource on Alcohol

A new, free resource for providers was just released by the National Institute of Alcohol and Alcoholism (NIAAA). 

The Core Resource on Alcohol was created with the input and guidance from practicing clinicians, including Drs. Anne Fernandez, Lewei Allison Lin and Jessica Mellinger.

It was designed for all practicing healthcare professionals and consists of a practical, user-friendly overview in for main areas:

  • Foundational Knowledge
  • Alcohol’s Clinical Impacts
  • Strategies for Prevention and Treatment
  • Pulling It All Together

“We highly recommend this accessible and research-informed online resource to any clinician working with patients with alcohol-related problems. Alcohol use is the third leading cause of preventable death in America and alcohol-related problems are often overlooked and undertreated. This resource can help clinicians gain more knowledge including how to promote health and reduce alcohol-related harms. You can also earn free CME credits. We are grateful to the NIAAA for creating this resource, which included expertise from our Psychiatry department faculty members.” - Anne Fernandez, Ph.D.

The Core Resource on Alcohol offers up to 10.75 credit hours of free continuing education credit to physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and clinical psychologists.
