This webinar provides an overview of targeted Screening Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) interventions, which allow for universal annual screening of patients for depression and substance misuse that has a demonstrated impact on patient health and cost of care.
Early childhood screening is an essential component of health supervision. The Screening in Practices Initiative offers information and resources, including screening recommendations, practice tools, and individualized assistance, to help pediatric health care providers implement effective screening, referral, and follow-up for developmental milestones, maternal depression, and social determinants of health.
DAST (Drug Abuse Screening Test) is given to adults ages 18 and older when positive on the drug question on the Brief screen (in the SBIRT process). A “Full screen” that assesses consequences related to recreational drug use. Includes extra questions about types of drugs, injection of drugs, and drug treatment.
Based on the data from a multinational World Health Organization collaborative study, the AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) questionnaire is a simple method of screening for excessive drinking and alcohol use disorders.
