New e-learning programme developed for NHS healthcare professionals to reduce the stigma faced by patients with alcohol problems.
A package of training materials, including facilitator’s notes, are included in a new e-learning programme, which aims to help health professionals to have a better understanding of alcohol dependency and to improve longer-term outcomes for patients.
The resources will be of interest to health and social care staff who come in to contact with patients with alcohol problems in either: hospital, primary care or community settings.
A new film also complements the e-learning package and uses emotional and thought-provoking real stories voiced by patients to highlight the problems they face.
