Psychiatry related information on ATOD

  • Twenty-two percent of programs required a clinical ATOD rotation, most commonly smoking-cessation clinics [1].
  • We determined PMR programs' alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse (ATOD) training from 1995 to 2000 and identified barriers to this education [1].
  • The high rates of ATOD use and depressive symptoms among these parents are cause for concern [2].
  • The relationship of self-esteem and depression with alcohol, tobacco, and other drug (ATOD) use was tested in a California statewide sample of more than 4,300 Asian American high school students comprising five subgroups: Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, and Vietnamese [3].

High impact information on ATOD

  • Only 29% of PMR PDs felt that residents were well prepared in clinical aspects of ATOD, while 60% felt that residents were prepared in ATOD research and public health issues [1].
  • Analysis strategies for a community trial to reduce adolescent ATOD use: a comparison of random coefficient and ANOVA/ANCOVA models [4].
  • Furthermore, youth with disabilities who reported ATOD use or who engaged in binge drinking had significantly more negative educational outcomes and engaged in sexual activity at a younger age than nonusers [5].
  • Specific aims of the investigation were: a) to identify the extent to which the 12 mediators were found in each framework; and b) to identify those frameworks that included Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs (ATOD) sections and determine to what extent the 12 mediators were found in those sections [6].
  • Consumers and authors of Web-based materials must critically assess and evaluate that information; the Information Quality Tool developed by the Health Summit Working Group is suggested as an analytic framework useful in evaluating ATOD information [7].

Biological context of ATOD

  • Setting educational standards, defining competencies, investing in faculty development, and creating ATOD curricular modules are important next steps toward preparing preventive medicine physicians to effectively reduce the public health toll of addictions [1].

Associations of ATOD with chemical compounds

  • Five focus groups were conducted with low-income parents and school personnel from two urban elementary schools in Lexington, Kentucky. Cues to Action was the most frequent HBM construct expressed by both parents and school personnel in regard to ATOD prevention programs and general school activities [8].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of ATOD

  • Life skills training (LST) is a school-based approach designed to prevent ATOD use among youth by influencing their knowledge and attitudes about ATODs, by teaching skills for resisting social pressures to use ATODs, and by helping students develop personal self-management and social skills [9].
