Resource Summary: This webinar describes a randomized clinical trial of a brief intervention (SBIRT) against a 2-6 session intervention of brief treatment in three urban federally qualified healthcare centers (FQHCs), focusing on screening and onsite brief intervention / brief treatment.

Resource Details: Have you wondered how to implement SBIRT in an urban setting? SBIRT is a public health approach to the delivery of early intervention and treatment services for people with substance use disorders and those at risk of developing these disorders. Brief intervention in primary care settings for illicit drug use has a mixed track record in reducing drug use; trials with booster sessions and expanded treatment appear to provide more robust results. This webinar will discuss a randomized clinical trial of a brief intervention (SBIRT) against a 2-6 session intervention of brief treatment in three urban federally qualified healthcare centers (FQHCs), focusing on screening and onsite brief intervention / brief treatment. Our presenters will discuss appropriate substance use screeners, compare multiple SBIRT interventions, and explain the SBIRT implementation process for a primary care team including patient flow and job duties. This webinar is presented by Elizabeth Byrne, Adam Brooks, and Kimberly Malayter.
