About the webinar: Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is a comprehensive and integrated approach to delivering early intervention and treatment services to persons with substance use disorders and those at risk. Patients with chronic non-malignant pain who are on opioid maintenance therapy often become dependent on opioids, and may also demonstrate behaviors that suggest an opioid use disorder. This webinar will share a novel SBIRT approach that equips clinicians to screen chronic pain patients to assess potential opioid risk, use a monitoring framework for patients on opioid therapy to assess response to opioids and track concerning behaviors, perform brief interventions that may assist patients in resolving concerning behaviors, and refer patients who need more intensive pain or addiction therapy.

Additional webinar materials:
