AOD and the Brain - Part 2 is the second of a two-part workshop. Registration to Part 1 is available separately here.
This workshop targets practitioners working in specialist alcohol and drug and mental health settings who want to develop an in-depth neurobiological understanding of how psychoactive substances affect the brain and body. It is the second session of a 2-part workshop.
By the end of this session learners will be able to:
- Develop a more in-depth understanding of brain pharmacokinetics
- Identify different routes of administration and how this impacts a person's experience and risk exposure
- Demonstrate a fundamental understanding of how a substance moves through the body, including concepts of absorption, distribution, bioavailability, metabolism, elimination and drug half-lives.
- How dependence develops and can be assessed to inform treatment planning.
