This course is split into three sessions:

  • Session 1 will enable you to understand the concepts of substance use, substance misuse and substance abuse. It will describe the effects of misuse of common substances. It will also describe the value and consequences of substance misuse for adolescents.
  • Session 2 - Since some high-profile cases, agencies that deal with young people have an increased responsibility to work with each other to improve outcomes for young people who misuse substances. This session outlines the responsibilities of some of the agencies involved and suggests current assessment, screening and management models.
  • Session 3 - Since some high-profile cases, agencies that deal with children have an increased responsibility to work with each other to prevent substance misuse. This session outlines some of those responsibilities and suggests ways to identify children at risk of substance misuse and put in place prevention strategies.

eIntegrity programmes are developed by NHS Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare programme (HEE e-LfH). 

The programmes are high quality self-directed learning programmes.  They are designed to support training and CPD and are excellent resources alongside other traditional teaching methodologies.  They have been developed by the UK NHS for use in the NHS.  However, many of the programmes have international relevance, particularly the specialty training programmes which are often mapped to UK specialty training curricula.
