C3. The Nurse as the Patient: Working with Nurses in Residential Addiction Treatment
- Beginning Level
- Novice Level
- Intermediate Level
- Expert Level
- Participants will have a greater understanding on how rates of SUD differ in nurses as compared to the general public
- Participants will be able to identify themes common to nurses, how these themes manifest in active addiction and resolve in recovery
- Participants will understand how group therapy specific to healthcare professionals supports the recovery of nurses
Nurses develop substance use disorder (SUD) at a rate that
is slightly higher than the US national average. There are
many social, environmental and professional factors that
influence the development of SUD with nurses. Those factors
include role strain, problems in daily living, enabling by peers
and supervisors, attitudes towards drugs and drug use and
other factors. This presentation will examine factors that
reinforce development of SUD in nurses. Common themes
(or professional traits) in nursing practice will be presented
and there will be a discussion about how these themes or
professional traits become distorted in active addiction. This
presentation will also review how these themes or professional
traits can be corrected in the process of moving into recovery.
The important relationship with professional monitoring
programs will also be addressed.
