Developing a creative curriculum for those working with clients who misuse substances.

  A substance misuse curriculum was developed using a creative approach. Key players identified were: a community outreach worker, a nurse consultant, a communication expert and an academic. Communication was seen as a fundamental and integral cornerstone of practice and played a major role in the curriculum. The increased awareness of coexisting morbidity was also seen as a growing and relevant issue. Practitioners were involved and played a pivotal role in this development. The role of the academic was to facilitate the process and ensure that the curriculum was evidence‐based, creative and utilised the philosophy of problem‐based learning.
