SBIRT FOR YOUTH LEARNING COMMUNITY
Substance use by adolescents is a significant public health problem and is associated with both acute and long term health problems. The American Academy of Pediatrics and other organizations recommend screening and brief intervention to prevent or reduce substance use as part of routine care for adolescents. This learning community will focus on the process of SBIRT as it is being implemented for youth audiences.
