Screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment approaches are utilized in a variety of care settings. SBIRT has been shown to be effective in primary care settings, where it is incorporated into other routine medical assessments such as measuring blood pressure. It has been proven particularly effective in hospital emergency departments and trauma centers with individuals with alcohol-related injuries. This TOT workshop focuses on screening procedures to identify risk; key motivational interviewing concepts and principles that are tied to effective use of the FLO (Feedback; Listen and Understand; Options Explored) brief intervention; and referral to treatment for patients with more serious substance use-related problems. The workshop seeks to increase the number of Hawaii-based individuals who serve as local champions to broaden the effective use and implementation of SBIRT. The workshop seeks to transfer knowledge and skills to disseminate a curriculum and learning strategies on SBIRT implementation in primary care settings. During the first day of the TOT, participants will review training material, and discuss strategies to engage trainees and handle challenging issues that may arise in the context of an SBIRT training. During the second day, participants will prepare for and practice teaching a small portion of the SBIRT curriculum, and receive feedback from two master trainers and other TOT participants.

1) Complete the Tour of MI self-paced online course
