The DSM-5 chapter immediately following Disruptive, Impulse-Control, and Conduct Disorders is a very extensive chapter on Substance Related and Addictive Disorders. The substance-related and addictive disorders are in some respects very similar to the disruptive, impulse-control, and conduct disorders because, like the latter, they are characterized by a tendency to act impulsively without regard to the consequences. In fact, many individuals with a history of early onset conduct disorder become substance users. In contrast to the numerous substance-related disorders covered in this chapter, only one non-substance-related disorder is discussed, which is gambling disorder. This course includes the necessary information to help you understand all of these disorders, starting with a broad overview of substance-related disorders in general, and then more detailed coverage of disorders for specific substances. Lastly, you will find a full description of the addictive behavioral pattern that meets the diagnostic criteria for gambling disorder.

Terminal illness can present a myriad of needs that have to be addressed in order to ensure that the person approaching end of life receives the best care to ensure the best quality of life in their remaining days. The needs of the terminally ill range from the immediate and physical, such as the management of pain and suffering, to psychological in order to address feelings of fear, anger, sadness, or depression over knowing that death is near. There are also social needs that are important to address as the majority of individuals who require end-of-life care are the elderly, who are often prone to loneliness. There are also emotional and psychological needs for caretakers separate from the needs of the individual approaching the end of life. Family caretakers have been found in a number of studies to struggle emotionally and experience a lack of support when caring for loved ones at the end of life. Families have also experienced challenges in finding the appropriate type of care for loved ones at the end of life. This overview will discuss the challenges of providing end of life care to terminally ill patients, as well as the best methods of care available with case studies to provide illustrations of key concepts.
