The Portuguese Association for Addiction Medicine (APMA) and the Portuguese Society for Occupational Medicine (SPMT) will conduct the course:
Alcohol consumption currently occupies a relevant position, not only as a risk factor for multiple pathologies, but also as an important intervener in traffic and work accidents, domestic violence, criminality, affection of marital relationships, among others. It constitutes one of the top five risk factors for illness, disability and death in the world, translating into a considerable burden in terms of health expenses and potential years of life lost. This theme becomes particularly relevant in the current context, given the evidence that reveals an association between worsening alcohol consumption and health crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic. The APMA and SPMT designed this training with the purpose of training health professionals, namely in occupational medicine and occupational health, to identify alcohol-related problems (ALP) at an early stage and to intervene and refer them for a specialized consultation.
Registration open until the 27th of October 2021.
