Benefitting Brad: An Interprofessional Case of Adolescent Substance Use and ADHD

Date of Review: February, 2019

This resource, from MedEdPORTAL, is intended for inter-professional teams to develop the knowledge and skills to screen and manage substance use issues among adolescents with ADHD. Curriculum materials include case presentations, assigned readings, lecture slides, a motivational interviewing exercise, a pre/post case survey, and an instructor’s guide. The case featured is unique in that it develops over 4 sessions and allows learners to identify topics for further exploration. Learners reported increased confidence and improved understanding of inter-professional team roles. While this curriculum was developed for trainees in an inter-professional adolescent health fellowship, the authors note it could be implemented with residents, fellows, or students from a variety of disciplines. — Brigid Dolan, MD, NCEAS and Katy Wright, PhD, NCEAS
