Academic Edge, Inc. launches SBIRT in Action website

For immediate release.

Academic Edge, Inc. (AEI) has launched sbirtinaction.org, a website of videos, case studies, courses, and other resources to support adoption and implementation of SBIRT: Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment. “We’ve been involved in many many SBIRT efforts over the years, from NIH funded R&D efforts to helping universities and other programs set up, rollout, and maintain SBIRT programs,” according to Richard Goldsworthy, PhD and Director of Research and Development, “We have a large collection of resources, and we wanted to put them all in one place so people can review and use them.”

sbirtinaction.org includes videos of the SBIRT process, of patient case studies, and of a full clinic adoption case. SBIRT in Action also has examples of courses that introduce screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment. Courses vary from Flash-based modules, to dynamic CMS-based modules, and cover everything from introducing SBIRT to Supporting Organization Wide Implementation.
