Free 30-Day Trial to Aquifer Addiction

4 April 2018 - 9:08am by Lindsay Barnett

The Cushing/Whitney Medical Library is hosting a free 30 day trial to Aquifer Addiction (formerly CARE), and we would love your input!  If you are interested in exploring this product, please contact Lindsay Barnett who will create a trial account for you.  Please note that the trial is not available to students. 

About Aquifer Addiction:

Used in medical schools around the world, the Aquifer Addiction (CARE) online curriculum prepares medical students to identify, intervene and address substance use disorders.  The lack of formal education surrounding substance use disorders and addiction has left many practicing physicians and healthcare professionals inadequately prepared to assess, intervene, manage, and treat patients.

Key Features:

  • Twelve modules incorporate case studies, which provide an interactive platform for clinical consideration, and videos featuring today's leading experts in addiction covering key topics.
  • Created for educators, by educators, in conjunction with the American Society of Addiction Medicine and the Treatment Research Institute.
  • Proven pedagogy that standardizes experiences - overcoming geography, seasonality, and accessibility.
  • Evidence-based, peer-reviewed, and continuously updated content.
  • Self-assessment questions at the end of the course emphasize key content and enable students to test their knowledge and skills.
  • A wealth of source material, tools, and full references in each case.
  • Delivered via the Aqueduct learning management system, which includes user management options, easy reporting on student progress and course usage, plus tools for creating custom courses to match a specific curriculum.
  • Available for individual or institutional subscribers for students or as continuing education. 

The trial runs through May 2nd.
