The Brain and Recovery: An Update on the Neuroscience of Addiction (T) - ACPE

The Brain and Recovery: An Update on Neuroscience of Addiction (T) - ACPE

online home study

Learning Objectives
At the end of this activity, participants should be able to summarize both the relevant neuroanatomy and the latest neuroscientific explanations of substance use disorder (SUD) pathophysiology as well as correctly interpret SUD symptomology in light of this research; and describe the evidence supporting SUD as a brain disease but also understand the limitations of the “disease model” in trying to frame addiction as a volitional disorder. Participants should also be able to explain how diverse models of professional treatment and community-based support can suggest strategies to restore volitional capacity and functionality in people recovering from SUDs; and recall the latest research on addiction to suggest behavior change and interventions that can impact the different areas of the brain involved in SUDs and the specific pathophysiologic deficits they contribute to the process of addiction.

Continuing Education Credit

Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. Universal Activity #0112-0000-16-901-H04-T; 1.25 contact hours; Initial Release Date: 6/3/16; Expiration Date: 6/3/18

 

This activity is structured to meet knowledge-based educational needs. A knowledge-based activity acquires factual knowledge. Information in knowledge-based activities is based on evidence as accepted in the literature by the health care professions. Pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit will be earned based on participation in this activity.

 

Participants must complete an activity evaluation and posttest questions with a passing score of 70 percent or greater.

Upon completing and a passing grade, participants will receive pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit through CPE Monitor, a national, collaborative effort by ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to track their completed PCE credits. Michigan Pharmacists Association, as an ACPE-accredited provider, is required to report pharmacist and pharmacy technician PCE credit using this tracking system. Pharmacist and pharmacy technician participants must provide their NABP e-Profile identification number and date of birth (in MMDD format) when they complete activity evaluations. It will be the responsibility of the participant to provide the correct information. If this information is not correctly provided, NABP and ACPE prohibit MPA from issuing CPE credit. Online access to their inventory of completed credits will allow pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to easily monitor their compliance with CPE requirements and print statements of credit. Therefore, MPA will not provide printed statements of credit to pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Partial credit will not be awarded. If you have yet to sign up for CPE Monitor, go to MyCPEMonitor.net.
