2. Next Steps/Lesson Review

This section provides some ideas for consideration to help you think about implementation of the material in your own practice.

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes completing the evaluation surveys at the end of the asynchronous material (and the Live/In-person session), enables the learner to earn MOC points from the American Board of Pediatrics’ (ABP) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program.

It is the CME activity provider’s (Maine AAP) responsibility to submit learner completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABP MOC credit. We collect the required information from you in the survey evaluation (see link accompanying this information). An 80% pass rate is required for eligibility of MOC credit.

  1. Review printed materials in your office for teens and families explaining confidentiality.
  2. Review office policies that may impede treatment.
  3. Consider collecting adolescent phone numbers.
  4. Consider more training on trauma and SUD in youth Trauma and Adolescent SUD.
