[Research Presentation] Substance abuse is a global health problem. According to the World Health Organization there are 76 million people with alcohol disorders and 15 million people with substance abuse disorders worldwide (WHO, 2002).In the context of today's complex healthcare systems, it is imperative that all health care providers be able to identify substance abuse problems among patients in every healthcare setting. While the need for nurses to conduct alcohol and other drug screening, intervention and referral has been well documented (Hayes, 2002; Naegle, 1994; Howard, et al., 1997) education tends to be fragmented. The Enhancing Nursing Practice: Substance Abuse Education is a project funded by the Nurse Education, Practice and Retention Grant Program of DHHS that builds capacity for access, service and research through incorporating evidence-based transdisciplinary collaboration using addictions experts, curriculum designers, and nurse educators. The primary focus of the curriculum is substance abuse/prevention and cultural competence, using a distance learning format. The program, now in its second year, provides application content on motivational interviewing and referral to substance abuse services for patients and substance impaired colleagues. Nurses with screening and motivational interviewing skills tailored to meet the needs of diverse groups in a culturally competent way can make a significant impact in identifying patients and motivating them to seek appropriate clinical care. In order to build educational capacity, evidence from other clinical disciplines, including addiction experts,áis required to provide a comprehensive view of addiction problems and intervention strategies. This innovative education program for nurses is delivered on the internet through digital formats, video-taped interviews, on-line teaching-learning applications, case studies and patient interviews. This project establishes the ground work for future web-based programming that includes a broader exchange of information within a framework of cultural awareness and competence for nursing professionals wherever they live and work.
