Lessons Learned from the Grayken Clinical Addiction Case Conference

New Content ItemThe Grayken Center for Addiction at Boston Medical Center is a national hub for substance use disorder resources. Home to multiple specialized treatment and support programs for patients of all backgrounds, Grayken revolutionizes addiction treatment and education, replicates best practices, and provides policy, advocacy, and thought leadership.

These case reports originate from the clinical experience of addiction fellows at the Grayken Center, as well as those from other academic institutions. Cases are rooted in clinical questions that fellows explore at a conference with a facilitator and multi-disciplinary expert(s), along with a review of the literature to attempt to resolve key clinical care questions/learning objectives. The conferences are interactive with the audience and the lessons learnt from these discussions are presented here. This series reflects lessons learned from the conferences and is supported by the Grayken Center for Addiction Medicine at Boston Medical Center.
