Join Health Services Advisory Group (HSAG) for a one-hour webinar offering an overview of Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT). We will discuss this public health approach to identifying and providing effective interventions for those who may be at moderate to high risk of medical, behavioral, and/or psychosocial concerns related to alcohol use. This training highlights one validated screening tool, the AUDIT, and one evidence-based communication style, Motivational Interviewing. Download the event flyer to share among your colleagues.
