Webinar to Focus on Rethinking SBIRT

A free webinar set for Oct. 29 will discuss the potential of Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) programs for addiction. Grants for these programs were first issued in 2005 but have been underutilized even though the programs offer significant potential to coordinate care for people struggling with addiction. The webinar, hosted by Health Management Associates, will address key barriers to SBIRT implementation as well as emphasize the program’s flexibility. Webinar registration is available online
