Health care providers encounter patients seeking prescription or illicit drugs in all work settings and routinely provide 24-hour care to patients in hospital. They are in frequent contact with patients seeking health care who use illicit drugs and face complex clinical and personal situations that require a high level of clinical competence, expertise, and skill.
