International Presentation

NFAR PI/Project Director, Nancy Roget was invited to present at a meeting of the Prevention, Treatment and Rehabilitation Section of the United Nation's Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), held in Vienna, Austria June 6-8, 2016. The focus of the meeting was on the development of a model program for drug prevention and treatment in rural areas. Ms. Roget's extensive experience as a rural treatment provider; 20+ years' experience as PI/Director of a Regional ATTC Center serving frontier/rural states, and more recently as the Director of the Frontier and Rural National Focus Area ATTC provided the context for her presentation, "Assessing Substance Use Disorder Treatment Needs in Rural Settings." Thirty-seven participants (not including the UN staff) representing over 20 countries and a variety of government agencies attended the meetings. Government agency staff included senior staff from the US Drug Enforcement Agency, the Afghanistan Ministry of Public Health, the Russian Science Medical Research Center for Psychology and Narcology, and the Hungarian National Institute for Health Development, among others. In addition, UNODC attendees representing the Support for Addictions Prevention and Treatment in Africa (Nairobi, Kenya); the Department of Psychiatry and Mental Health (Dar es Salaam, Tanzania); Unicom Solutions (Ethiopia); and Croatia expressed interest in and/or are registered to attend the NFAR 2016 Technology Summit.

(second Tuesday of every month at 11:00am Pacific Time)

July 12, 2016 - An Interactive Approach to Teaching Alcohol Screening and Brief Intervention
Prenatal alcohol exposure is the sole cause of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs), a term used to describe the continuum of disorders caused when a developing baby is exposed to alcohol before birth. Although FASDs are completely preventable, if there is no prenatal exposure to alcohol, many women still report drinking during pregnancy. The best approach to eliminating alcohol consumption among pregnant women and reducing risky alcohol use by non-pregnant women of reproductive age is for healthcare professionals to assess the level at which their patients drink alcohol using a standardized screening tool.
For this webinar, Dr. Leigh Tenkku Lepper from the University of Missouri will demonstrate a web-based avatar training program being used to train healthcare students and practitioners on how to conduct alcohol screening and brief intervention (alcohol SBI).
Presenter: Leigh Tenkku Lepper, PhD, MPH, University of Missouri
