Promoting SBIRT in an Interprofessional Setting with Vulnerable Populations

This webinar is produced in partnership with The BIG Initiative, National SBIRT ATTC, NORC at the University of Chicago, and Council on Social Work Education. This free webinar will discuss how SBIRT is being implemented in different settings with vulnerable populations within an interprofessional context. Settings include a primary/behavioral health clinic staffed by faculty and students providing bridge care to uninsured immigrant populations, a foodbank, and shelters for men and women who are homeless. The presenters will explore benefits and challenges to implementing SBIRT in interprofessional settings. In addition, special attention will be directed toward SBIRT implementation with vulnerable populations. Addressing cultural variables and those that directly impact the social determinants of health require innovative strategies to promote behavioral change. Exploration of faculty and student roles along with curriculum support for SBIRT implementation in these settings will be explored.
