Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment Presentation
Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an evidence-based practice intervention used to identify, reduce, and prevent problematic use, abuse, and dependence on substances such as tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drugs. The SBIRT model was incited by an Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommendation that called for community-based screening for health-risk behaviors. The purpose of this assignment is to integrate SBIRT into nursing practice to help stimulate positive change at the individual and population-focused level of care.
This assignment enables the student to meet the following Course Outcomes
Plan prevention and population-focused interventions for vulnerable populations using professional clinical judgment and evidence-based practice.
Evaluate the delivery of care for individuals, families, aggregates, and communities based on theories and principles of nursing and related disciplines. Background information
SBIRT consists of three major components.
1. Screening—A healthcare professional assesses a patient for concerning behaviors using standardized screening tools. Screening can occur in any healthcare setting.
2. Brief Intervention—A healthcare professional engages a patient in a short conversation, providing feedback and advice regarding concerning behaviors.
3. Referral to Treatment—A healthcare professional provides a referral to resources and/or treatment options and additional services available (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration [SAMHSA], n.d.)

You are encouraged to review the assignment tutorial found at the end of the Academic Integrity Reminder.
Next, choose one addiction or problem to focus on for this assignment from the options below.
Nicotine (all tobacco and electronic nicotine delivery systems)
Drug use (addictive prescription or illicit)
You must be specific to which drug you are choosing
You are required to use one of the problems listed above. Assignments that do not follow the current guidelines or use the required forms or templates will be evaluated for evidence of an academic integrity violation. After the due date, there will be no opportunity for revision or resubmission of assignments that have been uploaded to the submission area. It is your responsibility to submit the correct assignment to the correct submission area.
After you have chosen the addiction/problem, you are to research SBIRT training specific to that addiction/problem. Before starting to work on the presentation, it is vital you understand how SBIRT is used with that particular addiction/problem. You must find at least two scholarly resources (other than readings assigned in the course) and one video resource. Search YouTube for one SBIRT training video from a reputable source that shows a provider using SBIRT with a patient. Watch this video so that you understand the steps of SBIRT.
You may choose to complete this assignment as a PowerPoint poster or PowerPoint multiple slide presentation. Download the SBIRT PowerPoint poster (Links to an external site.) or slide presentation template (Links to an external site.).
Submit the completed PowerPoint poster or slide presentation by Sunday, 11:59 p.m. MT at the end of Week 6.
Length: The poster should be one page with all boxes on template complete. The slide presentation should be no more than twelve slides, not including the title and references slides.
Below are the requirements needed for successful completion of the SBIRT: Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment presentation.
Introduction to the problem and/or addiction: Clearly identify the problem, and discuss specific statistics from your community related to this problem. You may use city or county data. For example, if you choose tobacco use, you should find the tobacco use rate in your city or county. **Please note, this is only an example, you must choose from one of the topic options provided in the guidelines above.**
Problem description: Utilize one scholarly reference (not assigned in this course) to describe this problem/addiction. Discuss reasons why this may be a problem in your community. Cite all sources.
SBIRT description: Utilize at least one scholarly reference different from the one selected for the problem description above, and not assigned in this course, to describe how SBIRT is used with this specific addiction/problem. Identify specific steps and questions that are used.
Video: Locate and describe at least one video that demonstrates SBIRT related to the addiction you chose.
Citation: Cite all sources.
Community resources: Describe at least two available community resources to which you may refer people who have this problem or an increased potential for acquiring this problem. You are to provide the names of these resources and brief descriptions. You may use online resources if community resources are not available.
Conclusion/future implications for nursing: Provide a summary of your findings. Discuss the use of SBIRT in nursing practice.
References: Provide all references for all sources utilized. Use APA format; however, a hanging indent is not necessary.
