Patient-Centered Urine Drug Testing

Urine drug testing (UDT) is playing an increasing role in the management of risk in clinical care. Unfortunately, drug testing can suffer from several shortcomings, especially when called upon to identify problematic use of controlled substances. Still, UDT can be an important part of patient-centered care. This interactive, case-based workshop will explore difficult clinical issues in the identification, treatment, and monitoring of patients while providing objective data for risk evaluation and minimization strategies necessary for responsible clinical care.
