Abstract: Designed as a handout for a poster presentation, this paper describes a drug prevalence survey used in Alabama, and methods of establishing drug abuse prevention programs. All
students in grade 7, 9, and 11 in the state (N=140,000+) completed a 466-variable drug prevalence survey. The survey identified rates of use for 14 substances, including alcohol and tobacco products,
illicit drugs, and steroids. It also measured student involvement in school, family, and community activities. The results, as a supplement to other sources of needs assessment, gave the 129 Alabama
school districts a dataset for planning prevention and education programs at the community level. One prominent result was that greater involvement in various school or community activities related
to lower drug use. The risk factors for drug abuse appear similar to the risk factors for school failure. In a training project funded by USOE (STRIPE--Strategic Training for Rural Intervention,
Prevention, and Education), community-school teams from 12 communities in rural areas were trained to develop programs for their communities. Two features of the training are components on how to
teach adolescents peer-pressure resistance skills that are generalizable beyond specific drug use situations and how to teach critical thinking and decision-making skills. Team training was conducted
by a multidisciplinary faculty, including pharmacologists, health educators, social workers, counselors, and psychologists. The Alabama Drug Prevalence Survey is included in the document. (Author/KS)

Abstract: Teaching problem solving strategies and steps to first year college students enrolled in the pharmaceutical/chemical technology program as a part of their first year chemistry
course focused on teaching the students the basic steps in problem solving and encouraging them to plan carefully and focus on the problem solving process rather than to feel a sense of helplessness
and panic. The paper attempted to understand students' problem solving patterns, and to provide them with some strategies to enhance their problem solving skills. It was found that after showing the
students basic problem solving strategies/steps, their mean test scores, as compared to a control group was significantly higher at 0.95 probability level. Contains 23 references. (Author)

Abstract: A lack of adequate substance abuse information at an elementary school prompted this practicum examining at risk students. Classroom guidance lessons on substance abuse prevention
were given, which included small group counseling sessions regarding self-esteem and problem-solving skills, followed by posttests. Classroom guidance lessons revealed a need for prevention programs
which imparted knowledge about the use and consequences of alcohol and substances. The self-esteem small group sessions showed that students responded positively to assertiveness training and social
skill enhancement. Students also benefitted from talks about responsibility, self-discipline and good judgment. Participants indicated a need for all students to join in drug awareness and a desire
for more small group counseling sessions and classroom guidance lessons regarding the issues of substance abuse prevention. Parents reported that they felt excluded from their children's substance
abuse programs. It was concluded that comprehensive school substance abuse prevention programs should include lessons for students regarding feelings, pharmacology, and self-awareness, as well as
involve parents. Students who completed posttests on substance abuse prevention, self-esteem, and problem-solving skills performed perfectly. Contains 18 references. (Three appendices list all three
posttests.) (RJM)

Abstract: In only recent history, illicit use of methamphetamine, once isolated to urban areas on the West Coast, has spread into rural areas of the Midwest and southern United States.
Although past and current methamphetamine legislation has increased penalties for methamphetamine manufacturers and tightened restrictions on sales of known precursors, the problem still persists. In
fact, a 2004 survey indicates that an alarming 6.2% of high school seniors have tried methamphetamine. A number of biological, genetic, and environmental factors influence children's and adolescents'
paths to substance abuse. Nurses should recognize the symptoms of methamphetamine abuse, which include agitation; aggressive behavior; rapid mood swings; hypertension; tachycardia; and eventually
lesion-marked skin, clinical depression, and paranoid psychosis. Treatment for methamphetamine addiction includes behavioral therapy. Research on pharmacologic therapy is lacking. Educating youth on
methamphetamine prevention appears to be the best approach to curb the spreading use of this addictive and deadly drug. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)

Abstract: This article examines the individual components of bipolar disorder in children and the behaviors that can escalate as a result of misdiagnosis and treatment. The brain/behavior
relationship in bipolar disorders can be affected by genetics, developmental failure, or environmental influences, which can cause an onset of dramatic mood swings and dysfunctional behavior. School
is often the site where mental health disorders are observed when comparing behaviors with other children. Assessing the emotional, academic, and health needs of a student with a bipolar disorder is
a critical step in designing effective interventions and school accommodations. Without appropriate medical, psychological, pharmaceutical, and academic interventions, a child is at risk for
uncontrolled mania, depression, substance abuse, or suicide. The school nurse is part of the multidisciplinary team and plays a key role in facilitating case management to potentially reverse this
possible negative trajectory. Successful case management provides children with bipolar disorder the opportunity to reach their academic potential. (Contains 5 tables.)

Abstract: The objective of this study was to profile and compare alcohol and other drug (AOD) use attitudes and behaviors in three pharmacy colleges. Student surveys of AOD use attitudes
and behaviors were conducted at one southwestern and two midwestern pharmacy colleges. Response was 86.5% (566/654). Reported past-year use included alcohol 82.8%, tobacco 25.4%, and marijuana 6.9%.
Past-year AOD-associated events included blackouts 18.2%, class or work under influence 7.8%, patient care under influence 1.4%, lowered grades or job evaluations 5.8%, legal charges 2.7%, and heavy
drinking 29.0%. Family histories of alcohol or drug problems were reported by 35.5% and 13.1%, respectively. A number of significant differences in AOD use attitudes and behaviors between the three
colleges were identified. Pharmacy students reported a number of risky drug-use attitudes and behaviors in this survey. Student AOD prevention, assistance, and education should be proactively
addressed by pharmacy colleges. (Contains 4 tables.)

Abstract: Results of the 2009 "Monitoring the Future" (MTF) study document the disturbing prevalence among teens of abuse of prescription and over-the-counter drugs. The data show, for
example, that seven of the substances most commonly abused by high school seniors are pharmaceuticals. Many parents believe they are powerless to influence their teens. However, research makes clear
that parents remain the single most powerful influence in their kids' lives. This paper offers some tips for parents on how to talk to their teens about drug use. (Contains 4 figures.)

Abstract: We report findings from the second phase of a study of co-operative, group-based assessment in Pharmacology for second-year undergraduates at The University of Queensland,
Australia. Students (n = 285) enrolled in the 2006 Bachelor of Science degree program completed a group-based assessment task (weighted 10% of their course). Blended teaching strategies and the task
design were modified to support group formation and peer teaching. A Jigsaw teaching strategy was adopted to support a co-operative learning task in which groups created and submitted a Notice of
Intent (NOI) or mini grant proposal based on the topic of Drug Dependence. Assessment was 7% from the NOI and 3% from an individual quiz. In post-assessment surveys, students reported more favourable
attitudes towards assessment in which group members received the same marks than in a pre-teaching survey. Findings from the post-task assessment survey were that most students worked co-operatively
around assessment. Most students reported that peer teaching help them to complete their assignment and their individual quiz (3%) more than working in "expert panels" or group-based writing. Overall
marks were high: the mean [plus or minus] sd for the group-based NOI was 80 [plus or minus] 13% and for the averaged quiz marks, 73 [plus or minus] 13%. The need for more detailed study of group
dynamics is recommended. (Contains 3 figures.)

Abstract: We report findings from a case study of co-operative, group-based assessment in Pharmacology for second-year undergraduates at The University of Queensland, Australia. Students
enrolled in the 2005 Bachelor of Science and 2006 Bachelor of Pharmacy degree programs, were early users of the university's new Collaborative Teaching and Learning Centre (CTLC), a specialised
social learning space. A pre-existing, traditionally taught Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) module on the topic of Drug Dependence was common to the courses for Science and Pharmacy students. We
describe how this module was redesigned as part of a 3-hour, co-operative assignment weighted as 5%. Details of the co-operative learning principles, the teaching strategy and the assessment design
are documented. Most students achieved high academic results: Science (2005) mean [plus or minus] SD = 79.5[plus or minus]14.8%, n = 232; Pharmacy (2006) mean [plus or minus] SD = 83.3[plus or
minus]13.6%, n = 186. From post-task opinion surveys and focus group interviews, both student cohorts perceived that CTLC facilities and the group work helped them learn about Drug Dependence. These
data confirmed that most students felt they worked co-operatively to complete the assessment. Time and understanding the new task were the main reported stressors. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)

Abstract: Objective: Heavy episodic drinking remains a significant problem on college campuses. Although most interventions for college students are behavioral, pharmacological treatments,
such as naltrexone, could provide additional options. Participants: The authors evaluated receptivity to various alcohol treatment options in a general population of college student drinkers (N =
2,084), assessed in 2005. Methods: The authors asked participants to indicate which of 8 treatment options (ie, self-help book, self-help computer program, self-help group, group therapy, individual
therapy, monthly injection, targeted oral medication, or daily oral medication) they would be willing to consider if they were going to cut down on or stop drinking. Results: Over 50% of drinkers
expressed receptiveness to self-help options or psychotherapy options, and over 25% of drinkers expressed receptiveness to medication options. Conclusions: Increasing treatment options for students
interested in reducing or stopping drinking by offering pharmacological interventions such as naltrexone could provide an important unmet need among college students. (Contains 3 tables.)

Abstract: Three educational interventions were simulated in a system dynamics model of the medical use, trafficking, and nonmedical use of pharmaceutical opioids. The study relied on
secondary data obtained in the literature for the period of 1995 to 2008 as well as expert panel recommendations regarding model parameters and structure. The behavior of the resulting systems-level
model was tested for fit against reference behavior data. After the base model was tested, logic to represent three educational interventions was added and the impact of each intervention on
simulated overdose deaths was evaluated over a 7-year evaluation period, 2008 to 2015. Principal findings were that a prescriber education intervention not only reduced total overdose deaths in the
model but also reduced the total number of persons who receive opioid analgesic therapy, medical user education not only reduced overdose deaths among medical users but also resulted in increased
deaths from nonmedical use, and a "popularity" intervention sharply reduced overdose deaths among nonmedical users while having no effect on medical use. System dynamics modeling shows promise for
evaluating potential interventions to ameliorate the adverse outcomes associated with the complex system surrounding the use of opioid analgesics to treat pain.

yearlong seminar course. The seminar courses are part of a thematic cluster of four to eight courses; students in the cluster live together in a common dormitory and participate in shared
co-curricular events designed to engage the entire cluster in intellectual discourse related to the theme. A two-semester seminar within the "Natural World" cluster was offered using biochemical
principles as the underlying content. In the first semester, students were introduced to drug design, activity and abuse via student presentations and guided readings on ethnobotany, drug laws, drug
use in religion, and prescription drug costs. In the second semester, students discussed primary readings in ethics followed by case study analyses of assisted reproduction technologies, informed
consent, genetic privacy, performance enhancing drugs and genetically modified organisms. Student learning outcomes were evaluated via rubrics and a College-facilitated survey.

contact with the public and the availability of non-prescription nicotine replacement therapies in pharmacies. However, community pharmacists often do not provide tobacco cessation interventions.
This study aimed to assess the knowledge, attitudes, practices and perceived barriers to tobacco cessation counselling among community pharmacists in Penang, Malaysia. Design: Cross-sectional study.
Setting: Community pharmacies on Penang Island. Methods: A self-administered questionnaire was distributed to 107 registered pharmacists practising in community settings on Penang Island. Results:
The response rate was 79.4% (85/107), with very few (16/85, 18.8%) reporting participation in the certified tobacco cessation training. Among the respondents, 27.1% had high, 44.7% had moderate and
28.2% had high levels of knowledge, and those who attended the certified training displayed higher levels of knowledge of nicotine replacement therapies (p?0.05). Most respondents showed positive
attitudes towards tobacco cessation. However, the practice of tobacco cessation counselling based on the 5 As method was limited mainly to advising patients to quit smoking. The main barriers to
tobacco cessation counselling included a lack of patient demand (71.8%), lack of education materials (69.4%) and lack of time (68.2%). Conclusions: More effort should be made to increase
participation of community pharmacists in tobacco cessation continuing education, and strategies should be formulated to overcome barriers to tobacco cessation practice.

Substance use and abuse among pharmacy students is a concern of pharmacy schools, boards of pharmacy, and training sites alike. Pharmacy students must complete approximately 30% of their academic
coursework in experiential settings such as community pharmacies, hospitals, and other health systems as part of any accredited pharmacy school's curriculum, and these training sites are starting to
require drug testing of pharmacy students as part of their contractual agreements with schools of pharmacy....

Abstract: Substance use and abuse among pharmacy students is a concern of pharmacy schools, boards of pharmacy, and training sites alike. Pharmacy students must complete approximately 30%
of their academic coursework in experiential settings such as community pharmacies, hospitals, and other health systems as part of any accredited pharmacy school's curriculum, and these training
sites are starting to require drug testing of pharmacy students as part of their contractual agreements with schools of pharmacy. The authors describe the implementation of a mandatory random urine
drug screening program at their school as well as the changes that occurred owing to assessment of the program. The authors report the basic results to date of the drug screening program. The authors
also speculate on secondary benefits of the drug screening program. Finally, the authors describe current and future evaluations that they are undertaking regarding this program.

Abstract: Introduction: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients are multimorbid elderly at high risk of drug-related problems. A Web-based training program was developed based on a list of
significant drug-related problems in CKD patients requiring a pharmaceutical intervention. The objectives were to evaluate the impact of the program on community pharmacists' knowledge and skills and
their satisfaction with the training. Methods: Pharmacists were randomized to the training program or the control group. Training comprised a 60-minute Web-based interactive session supported by a
clinical guide. Pharmacists completed a questionnaire on knowledge (10 multiple-choice questions) and skills (2 clinical vignettes) at baseline and a second time within 1 month. Trained pharmacists
completed a written satisfaction questionnaire. Semidirected telephone interviews were conducted with 8 trained pharmacists. Changes in knowledge and skills scores were compared between the groups.
Results: Seventy pharmacists (training: 52; control: 18) were recruited; the majority were women with less than 15 years' experience. Compared with the control group, an adjusted incremental increase
in the knowledge score (22%; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 16%-27%) and skills score (24%; 95% CI: 16%-33%) was observed in the training group. Most pharmacists (87%-100%) rated each aspect of the
program "excellent" or "very good." Additional training and adding a discussion forum were suggested to complement the program. Discussion: Pharmacists like the Web-based continuing education
program. Over a short time span, the program improved their knowledge and skills. Its impact on their clinical practices and quality of medication use in CKD patients remains to be assessed.

To evaluate buprenorphine training methodology, we surveyed physicians who had completed a combined online and in person buprenorphine curriculum. Of 53/70 (76%) survey respondents, 57% were
psychiatrists and 40% generalists. On a scale of 1 (very poor) to 7 (superlative), the overall training rated a mean of 5.8. The online course (5.0) rated lower than in person training components (p

Abstract: To evaluate buprenorphine training methodology, we surveyed physicians who had completed a combined online and in person buprenorphine curriculum. Of 53/70 (76%) survey
respondents, 57% were psychiatrists and 40% generalists. On a scale of 1 (very poor) to 7 (superlative), the overall training rated a mean of 5.8. The online course (5.0) rated lower than in person
training components (p less than 0.001) except for material that addressed the logistics of office practice. The in person patient interview received the highest rating (mean 6.3, p less than 0.001).
The 67% of physicians who intended to prescribe buprenorphine after the training were more likely than hesitant physicians to agree that the course provided enough information (p less than 0.05) and
that telephone access to experienced providers would improve their confidence (p less than 0.05). Physicians hesitant to prescribe cited lack of experience as the main barrier (41%), with 24%
concerned about induction difficulty and reimbursement. Overall, physicians preferred in person instruction and may benefit from additional experiential training and support after curriculum
participation. (Contains 2 tables.)

Abstract: This booklet summarizes programs of the Indian Health Service (IHS). The IHS was created in 1954 as part of the Public Health Service when responsibility for American Indian and
Alaska Native health care was transferred from the Department of the Interior's Bureau of Indian Affairs to the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. The goal of the IHS is to raise the
health status of American Indians and Alaska Natives to the highest possible level. Since 1955 the average life expectancy for American Indians and Alaska Natives has risen 19%; mortality rate among
Indians with tuberculosis has decreased 96%; and infant mortality rates have decreased 85%. These improved health numbers are the result of stronger central program supervision, more qualified staff,
and an accelerated public health program, including establishment of public health clinics on all reservations. The booklet describes the following IHS programs: (1) health care programs (preventive
health services, emergency medical services, environmental health and engineering services, pharmacy services, contract health services, health education program, community-based programs, alcoholism
and substance abuse program, school-based programs, diabetes program, nutrition program, mental health program, community health representative program, dental program, laboratory program); (2)
special health concerns and initiatives (AIDS, maternal and child health, otitis media, nursing, aging, health care database management system, physician services); (3) IHS career opportunities and
training programs (IHS manpower program, advanced professional and specialty training, Commissioned Officer Student Training and Extern Program); and (4) paraprofessional training (community health
aide training, mental health worker training, nutrition and dietetics training, optometric assistant training, dental assistant training). The 12 Area Offices of the IHS health care delivery system
are also described. Includes photographs and a national map of IHS health facilities. (TSP)

Abstract: This study evaluated the effectiveness of acceptance and commitment training (ACT) for increasing drug and alcohol counselors' willingness to use evidence-based agonist and
antagonist pharmacotherapy. Fifty-nine drug and alcohol counselors were randomly assigned to either a 1-day ACT workshop or a 1-day educational control workshop. Both groups then attended a 2-day
workshop on empirically supported treatments for substance abuse. Measures were taken at pre- and posttraining and 3-month follow-up on reported use of pharmacotherapy, willingness to use
pharmacotherapy, perceived barriers to implementing new treatments, and general acceptance. As compared with those in the education alone condition, participants in the ACT condition showed
significantly higher rates of referrals to pharmacotherapy at follow-up, rated barriers to learning new treatments as less believable at posttraining and follow-up, and showed greater psychological
flexibility at posttraining and follow-up. Mediational analyses indicated that reduced believability of barriers and greater psychological flexibility mediated the impact of the intervention. Results
support the idea that acceptance-based interventions may be helpful in addressing the psychological factors related to poor adoption of evidence-based treatments. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)

Abstract: Extinction, a form of learning that has the ability to reshape learned behavior based on new experiences, has been heavily studied utilizing fear learning paradigms. Mechanisms
underlying extinction of positive-valence associations, such as drug self-administration and place preference, are poorly understood yet may have important relevance to addiction treatment. Data
suggest a major role for the noradrenergic system in extinction of fear-based learning. Employing both pharmacological and genetic approaches, we investigated the role of the [alpha] [subscript
2]-adrenergic receptor ([alpha] [subscript 2]-AR) in extinction of cocaine-conditioned place preference (CPP) and glutamatergic transmission in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST). We
found that pre-extinction systemic treatment with the [alpha] [subscript 2]-AR antagonist yohimbine impaired cocaine CPP extinction in C57BL/6J mice, an effect that was not mimicked by the more
selective [alpha] [subscript 2]-AR antagonist, atipamezole. Moreover, [alpha] [subscript 2A]-AR knockout mice exhibited similar cocaine CPP extinction and exacerbated extinction impairing effects of
yohimbine. Using acute brain slices and electrophysiological approaches, we found that yohimbine produces a slowly evolving depression of glutamatergic transmission in the BNST that was not mimicked
by atipamezole. Further, this action was extant in slices from [alpha] [subscript 2A]-AR knockout mice. Our data strongly suggest that extinction-modifying effects of yohimbine are unlikely to be due
to actions at [alpha] [subscript 2A]-ARs.

Abstract: The innovative practical course was developed to improve the students' ability to acquire pharmaceutical care skills. The primary components of the course were in-school training
using small group discussions and hospital experience including identification, analysis, prevention and resolution of drug-therapy problems, patient counseling on their medications and diseases, and
interaction with medical team. Specific objectives of the research were to (1) compare students' performance before and after the course, (2) measure students' perceptions of their pharmaceutical
care skills before and after the course, (3) determine students' perception of the value of the course. Statistical comparison of pre-test and post-test grades indicated both a retention and
acquiring pharmaceutical care skills. A pre-course and post-course survey instrument was designed to measure students' perception of their pharmaceutical care skills. Perception of most of the items
of the survey was significantly improved at the end of the course. Overall, the majority of students were highly satisfied with the course. In conclusion, the present study demonstrates that the
innovative pharmaceutical care practical course was successfully introduced.

Abstract: Introduction: There is a serious debate over the involvement of the pharmaceutical industry in continuing education. Policies that govern the planning of continuing education for
pharmacists center on the potential conflict of interest when there is commercial support for programs. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of commercial support on the provision
and perceived outcomes of continuing pharmacy education. Methods: A survey was administered online to a national sample of accredited providers of continuing pharmacy education, resulting in 134
responses. The 64-item survey was developed to measure the planning practices of these providers and their perceptions of the educational and noneducational consequences of commercial support for
continuing education. Results: One hundred thirty-four usable questionnaires (34%) were received from 386 leaders in pharmacy education. Approximately 86% of providers and 43% of programs received
commercial support. Although the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education requires that providers review instructional content and materials for commercially supported programs before delivery,
only 43% always did so. Commercial support was perceived to have consequences for provider organizations, pharmacists, and patients, such as increased cost and use of drugs and financial dependency
of providers and participants on industry support. Discussion: The results of our study lead to the conclusions that commercial support of continuing education is widespread, affects continuing
education programs, and is perceived to have significant educational and noneducational consequences. The profession should ensure that continuing education guidelines are unambiguous related to
specific practices that are allowable and unallowable when receiving commercial support. Future research should study the consequences of commercial support behaviorally by examining the effects on
pharmacy professionals' practice and pharmaceutical care.

Abstract: Although numerous programs have been developed for Grade Kindergarten through 12 science education, evaluation has been difficult owing to the inherent problems conducting
controlled experiments in the typical classroom. Using a rigorous experimental design, we developed and tested a novel program containing a series of pharmacology modules (e.g., drug abuse) to help
high school students learn basic principles in biology and chemistry. High school biology and chemistry teachers were recruited for the study and they attended a 1-week workshop to learn how to
integrate pharmacology into their teaching. Working with university pharmacology faculty, they also developed classroom activities. The following year, teachers field-tested the pharmacology modules
in their classrooms. Students in classrooms using the pharmacology topics scored significantly higher on a multiple choice test of basic biology and chemistry concepts compared with controls. Very
large effect sizes (up to 1.27 standard deviations) were obtained when teachers used as many as four modules. In addition, biology students increased performance on chemistry questions and chemistry
students increased performance on biology questions. Substantial gains in achievement may be made when high school students are taught science using topics that are interesting and relevant to their
own lives. (Contains 3 notes, 7 tables, and 2 figures.)

Abstract: To help students learn science concepts, Pharmacology Education Partnership (PEP)--a science education program that incorporates relevant topics related to drugs and drug abuse
into standard biology and chemistry curricula was developed. The interdisciplinary PEP curriculum provides six modules to teach biology and chemistry principles within the context of pharmacology
topics (e.g., drugs of abuse, nerve gas). Teaching modules include catchy names, such as "Acids, Bases, and Cocaine Addicts," "Steroids and Athletes: Genes Work Overtime," and "How Do Drugs Damage
Neurons: It's Radical!". To date, PEP has provided professional development for 300 biology and chemistry teachers participating in the studies (and another 100 teachers at ongoing workshops).
National field-testing of the curriculum in approximately 16,000 students reveals that the more PEP modules the teachers use, the better their students perform on tests of biology and chemistry
concepts. An additional benefit of this approach might also be to students make intelligent decisions about drug use, although this remains to be tested. Substantial gains in achievement may be
possible when high school students are taught science using topics that are interesting and relevant to their lives.
