Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment: Research Priority for 2015
Speaker: Ken C. Winters, Ph.D.
Professor of Psychiatry
University of Minnesota Medical School
Moderator: Christine Reilly
Senior Research Director, National Center for Responsible Gaming
The 2015 research grants program of the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG) will focus on investigations of SBIRT (screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment) in order to improve identification of disordered gamblers, explore the efficacy of brief interventions for this population and increase the rate of disordered gamblers referred to treatment. This webinar is intended to help researchers interested in applying to the NCRG for an SBIRT project. However, healthcare providers and public health professionals will also find this program useful in view of the fact that SBIRT is being implemented by many state and national organizations, including the Addiction Technology Transfer Centers associated with SAMHSA. In addition, treatment providers and public health professionals interested in collaborating with researchers on an SBIRT research project are also encouraged to participate.
