Direct Care Project Part 2
Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT): Planning the Presentation Instructions
Directions: Create a PowerPoint presentation teaching about the use of Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT). See the assignment directions and tutorial for suggestions and best practices. Review the week’s readings prior to starting on your presentation, understand SBIRT, and its use related to the problem you identified in Part 1: Assessment and Diagnosis assignment.
Identify at least 3 practicing registered nurses who will volunteer for a session to learn about the SBIRT process that is used to identify, reduce, and prevent problematic use, abuse, and dependence on alcohol and illicit drugs.You can present to all at the same time or individually. Set a date and time(s) for your presentation during Saturday of Week 5 and Saturday of Week 6 to allow ample time to complete the Week 6 Part 4 Evaluation assignment.
Review local data related to the specific problem or addiction identified in the Community Health Assessment and Diagnosis assignment. Maintain privacy and only include data that is available to the public. Include citation(s) on the slide when resources are used. Include all resources used on reference slide.
Download the PowerPoint Presentation Template PowerPoint. (Once your presentation is complete, follow the job aid located in the Canvas Week 4 module Part 2 directions on how to convert the PowerPoint to PDF format with speaker notes displayed).
Create a PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes (8-15 slides not including introduction or references) for fellow healthcare professionals that includes:
See rubric, submission details, and best practices in Canvas.

Slide 1: Title Slide
Title: Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT)
Subtitle: A Tool for Early Intervention in Substance Use Disorders
Slide 2: Introduction
Good morning everyone. My name is [Your Name] and I am a registered nurse.
Today, I will be talking to you about Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT), a tool that can be used to identify and intervene with individuals who are at risk for or who have a substance use disorder.
SBIRT is a brief, evidence-based intervention that can be used in a variety of settings, including primary care, emergency departments, and schools.
I will begin by providing you with an overview of SBIRT, including its components and how it works. I will then discuss the importance of early intervention in substance use disorders and how SBIRT can be used to improve patient outcomes. Finally, I will provide you with some resources that you can use to learn more about SBIRT.
Slide 3: Community Description
The community that I am presenting to today is a large, urban community with a diverse population.
The community has a high rate of poverty and unemployment, and a significant number of residents are uninsured or underinsured.
The community also has a high rate of substance use, including alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs.
Slide 4: Problem Description
The problem that I am addressing today is the high rate of substance use in my community.
Substance use disorders can have a significant impact on individuals and families, including health problems, financial problems, and social problems.
Substance use disorders can also lead to crime, violence, and accidents.
Slide 5: SBIRT Description
SBIRT is a brief, evidence-based intervention that can be used to identify and intervene with individuals who are at risk for or who have a substance use disorder.
SBIRT consists of three components:
Screening: A brief assessment that is used to identify individuals who may be at risk for or who have a substance use disorder.
Brief Intervention: A short conversation with the individual that is designed to motivate them to change their behavior.
Referral to Treatment: Referral to a more intensive treatment program, if needed.
Slide 6: Community Resource
There are a number of community resources that can be used to support individuals who are struggling with substance use disorders.
These resources include:
Treatment programs: There are a number of treatment programs available in the community, including inpatient and outpatient programs.
Support groups: There are a number of support groups available in the community, including 12-step programs and peer support groups.
Self-help resources: There are a number of self-help resources available, including books, websites, and apps.
Slide 7: Implications for Practice
As healthcare professionals, we have a responsibility to screen our patients for substance use disorders.
Early intervention is essential for improving patient outcomes.
SBIRT is a brief, effective intervention that can be used to identify and intervene with individuals who are at risk for or who have a substance use disorder.
Slide 8: Conclusion
SBIRT is a valuable tool that can be used to improve patient outcomes.
As healthcare professionals, we have a responsibility to learn about SBIRT and to use it in our practice.
Thank you for your time.
