Building upon the research on SBIRT adaptation for adolescents, the Facilitating Change for Excellence in SBIRT initiative developed an innovative and evidence-based guide for adolescent SBIRT implementation. This presentation will highlight strategies and skill sets for implementation, and success stories from a Federally Qualified Health Center that successfully forged strong partnerships within the community while improving their SBIRT practice. Attendees will receive instruction on using change concepts to drive integration and improved population health while employing benchmarks for continual quality improvement.
- Define a change package as a tool for driving nationally applicable Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) adolescent practice transformation.
- Identify SBIRT clinical and operational change concepts that maximize opportunities to promote integration by enhancing population health, generating outcome-informed policies, and creating community partnerships.
- Implement practical applications of SBIRT change concepts tested by pilot participants to integrate upstream prevention, education, and early intervention.
