The Mountain Plains Addiction Technology Transfer Center (Mountain Plains) is offering a new product line for stakeholders called Best Science Slide Decks for Behavioral Health Professionals, or slideDecks4U for short. These Decks are intended to highlight a topic in 10 slides or less (similar to ‘pitch decks’ used in the business world to give a short summary of a company and its start-up vision). Unrestricted slide decks that include presenter notes and references will be available. Additional learning resources (e.g., original research articles, case studies, and learning exercises) will also be included when possible.
The goal of slideDecks4U is two-fold:
1. Help trainers and academic faculty easily infuse new research and evidence-based practices into existing curricula; and
2. Increase student and behavioral health practitioners’ interest in emerging behavioral health research on treatment and peer support topics in a brief and easy to use format.
