Telehealth EBP Video Demonstrations

Counselor Michael talking to client ShawnThese Telehealth EBP Video Demonstrations intend to show how a diverse set of clinical practitioners make use of evidenced based practices (EBP) in a telehealth environment.

The impetus for these videos came from a provider survey and our organization partners who identified “Clinical Demonstration” as a needed product, especially with the recent pivot toward telehealth.

The series follows "Shawn Adams," a 49-year-old mock client who has a polysubstance use disorder that includes opioids and marijuana. The onset of his opioid use disorder followed a bicycle accident where he injured his back and became dependent on pain medication. As a result, he lost his job and house and experiences significant depression and grief. Shawn is a treatment-naïve person and is receiving SUD services for the first time.

The demonstrations follow a client through a course of substance use disorder care, starting with a crisis, admission to IOP treatment, and a recurrence of use in outpatient treatment, and ending with connecting to a recovery coach for long term planning. Each video will demonstrate an evidence based practice used at different points in the client’s care.

The videos below can be viewed as stand-alone or in sequence. We trust viewers to make use of these videos as a personal resource or teaching tools in your clinic or practice. A set of Telehealth MOUD Video Demonstrations can also be found on our Telehealth Video Demonstrations webpage
