The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends adolescent substance use screening and education as part of routine care, using the universal Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) process endorsed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). However, many health professionals report having little time, training, tools, and treatment resources to conduct SBIRT with adolescents for use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
With funding from the Conrad N. Hilton foundation, schools of nursing and social work can access a variety of FREE training materials and resources on administering adolescent SBIRT. There are two key programs available now through 12/31/2017!
First, the Track C program offers a full curriculum including an Adolescent SBIRT Instructor’s Toolkit and the SBI with Adolescents simulation program. Participating schools also receive a unique link to an online pre- and post-survey to assist us in evaluating the program. A limited number of licenses for field instructors/preceptors and technical support from the NORC SBIRT Team and Kognito are also available.

In our Track D program, Nurse Preceptors and Nurse Educators at placement sites who supervise Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Doctoral Nursing education students can also obtain free access to the SBI with Adolescents simulation and will receive two free continuing education credits for participation.
