SBIRT: Behavioral Health Screenings and Patient-Centered Care

Webinar Date: 
Wednesday, July 24, 2013 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Targeted Screening Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) interventions allow for universal annual screening of patients for depression and substance misuse (including drugs, alcohol, and tobacco) that has a demonstrated impact on patient health and cost of care.  By utilizing brief interventions, more patients are able to access support for risky behaviors and avoid costly, future morbidities allowing for enhanced patient self-management and chronic disease management. 
This webinar:
  1. Provides an overview of SBIRT as a methodology and the screening tools and workflow that best support it
  2. Explores the data showing marked health improvements and cost savings that result from effective SBIRT implementation
  3. Discusses how to implement SBIRT in your primary care clinic
