EU experts shared their experience in addiction medicine with Kazakh drug treatment specialists

Two experts from Germany and Belarus conducted a two-day training workshop on 11-12 September 2017 for fourteen doctors-narcologists, psychologists and rehabiltation specialists from Pavlodar, Almaty, Astana, Zhambyl, Aktobe and Kostanai cities.

The training focused on different aspects of the treatment of patients with disorders related to the use of psychoactive substances.

The participants discussed the general principles of medical ethics and the ethical code of a psychiatrist/narcologist, alcohol dependency as comorbidity among drug users, and new psychoactive substances.

The participants analysed complex cases from their working practice, focusing on the use of ethical principles.

A working group of 10-15 experts in the field of substance abuse and social work will participate in CADAP trainings in 2017. These trainings are conducted in Central Asian countries to improve the quality standards of medical services rendered for problem drug users. At the end of the trainings, participants will receive certificates from the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences.
