SBIRT in Native American Populations
Wednesday, May 11, 2016
Beliefs about substance use are always tied to culture. As a result—even more than most healthcare practices—effective use of Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) requires cultural education.
Fortunately, the National ATTC Network provides expert guidance on working with diverse populations. In this webinar, Sean Bear and Lena Thompson from the American Indian/Alaska Native ATTC discuss SBIRT from a Native perspective. In addition to specific barriers and facilitators to the use of SBIRT in Native American communities, they share clinical tips to improve your response to substance use with a Native client/patient.
