Craig Strickland, Ph.D.
– 3 CEU’s
Opioid use has increased dramatically in the United States and across the globe. It is an issue for entire communities, not just professionals working in addiction medicine. This workshop will look at how opioids affect the human nervous system and human body. Specific pharmacologic interventions, especially methadone and buprenorphine, will be discussed in opioid addiction. Finally, the use of psychopharmacology to treat opioid withdrawal will be discussed.
Psychopharmacology, Ethnicity and Culture
Craig Strickland, Ph.D. – 3 CEU’s
In the US, psychopharmacology has been in existence for approximately 70 years since the FDA approval of Thorazine (1952). Much of the research focus has been on group differences associated with age and gender. Surprisingly, little research has focused on different ethnoracial groups. This presentation will look at differences in how medications are absorbed, distributed, and metabolized (known as pharmacokinetics) across groups. In addition, there are differences in how ethnoracial groups view the value psychotropic medication including medication adherence, another topic to be discussed within this workshop.
