Introduction to SBIRT Training Peru 3.26.21
Program Evaluation Research Unit (PERU)
Research indicates that a significant proportion of patients who misuse alcohol or drugs are likely to be present in different healthcare settings. It is estimated that: 23.4% of primary care patients in the U.S., aged 18 and older, are misusing alcohol or drugs and 39.9% of emergency department patients in the U.S., aged 18 and older, are misusing alcohol or drugs. SBIRT is an evidence-based public health/preventive practice that healthcare professionals can utilize to accurately identify patients who misuse alcohol or other drugs and match these patients to effective interventions aimed at decreasing or eliminating their alcohol and drug use.
Define and discuss the core components of SBIRT.
o Describe how screening assesses the risk associated with a patient’s substance use.
o Describe the clinical application of validated screening instruments, including the two-step process.
o Use a screening instrument to assess a patient’s risk level and determine next steps.
This activity will provide healthcare professionals with an overview of SBIRT and how to utilize evidence-based screening tools to assess patient risk for harm, methods to conduct a patient-centered brief intervention, and strategies to connect a patient to additional treatment services.
