Join the Community Care Network of Kansas for one of three regional Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) trainings in June. These trainings will be provided – at no cost – to federally qualified health center (FQHC) staff and Kansas State Farmworker Health Program providers. Presenter Pam Pietruszewski from the National Council for Behavioral Health will be bringing 20+ years of experience in primary care and behavioral health integration and motivational interviewing for behavioral change to provide a deep dive into the implementation of SBIRT and will address the following:
  • The use of evidence-based screening tools to determine alcohol and drug use risk level
  • The spirit of motivational interviewing and how stigma, perceptions, and cultural contexts influence SBIRT
  • How to define and demonstrate brief interventions using the Brief Negotiated Interview format to increase engagement, elicit behavior change, and reduce counterproductive discussions
  • Referral best practices that increase the likelihood of a person engaging in specialty addiction care
Implementation coaching calls will follow the training to help you incorporate what you have learned.
