Prisma health-Upstate, University of South Carolina School of Medicine-Greenville and Clemson University School of Nursing have developed Project TRANSFORM (Teaching Recovery-informed Addiction Care and Negating Stigma FOR Medical Professionals) to provide training for professionals on healthcare teams who in the course of their roles may serve individuals and families affected by substance use disorder. The module-type educational pedagogy includes review of sensitivity to the unique needs of those affected, information on various substances of use, clinical considerations, and supportive intervention strategies for healthcare professionals.
The project goal is to expand the number of practitioners to deliver high-quality, evidence-based substance use disorder treatment. Each module consists of an educational voiceover PowerPoint lecture and is followed by brief videos featuring interviews with individuals in recovery and who share their experiences in addiction and their journey to recovery. This innovative approach of integrating the medical knowledge with lived experience education provided by individuals living with addiction and in recovery will result in an educated, compassionate, and involved healthcare workforce addressing substance use disorder./p>

- Describe and provide treatment options and special considerations for patients suffering from use of each substance
