SBIRT in Telemedicine

SBIRT in Telemedicine

SBIRT in Telemedicine with Adolescent Patients

1 CME credit available*

On-Demand until December 31, 2020

SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment) represents an innovative, evidence-based approach to addressing substance use with adolescent medical patients. Its core components include:

  • Regular and universal screening in the medical setting, regardless of medical complaint.
  • Universal and routine use of validated screening tools.
  • Consideration of substance use as a continuum rather than a dichotomous “addicted versus not addicted” judgment.
  • Use of patient-centered change talk versus directive, prescriptive talk.
  • Facilitating smooth, bidirectional transitions between primary care and specialty addiction treatment.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, providers have dramatically increased their use of telemedicine to care for patients. The SBIRT model, meanwhile, has been traditionally implemented in pediatric settings as an in-person workflow that relies on paper-based screening tools. This presentation will explore how clinicians can screen adolescent patients for substance use, receive reimbursement, and perform brief interventions via video conferencing.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the importance of screening adolescents for substance use
  • Screen patients for substance use via telemedicine
  • Perform brief interventions with patients via telemedicine

Target Audience: Pediatricians, child health providers, clinic supervisors, nurses, social workers, behavioral health workers, and clinic staff

Presenter: Jim Winkle, MPH, has trained hundreds of physicians and clinic team members how to sustainably implement SBIRT workflows into primary care and emergency room settings. As the creator behind the sbirtoregon.org website, Jim has designed clinic tools, screening forms, and video demonstrations that have been widely adopted by health professionals around the country.
