Substance use disorder

What is substance use disorder (SUD) and how can the AMA's PFSP help Alberta physicians?

The Alberta Medical Association's Physician and Family Support Program and the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Alberta have partnered with Dr. Teresa Eliasson to create a video to educate physicians about SUD: what it is, how to identify it and where to seek help. This video will help to increase awareness of SUD and will be used to support the SUD conversation via PFSP’s education program, with the goal of educating and informing physicians, medical students and residents.
