Kognito: Free SBIRT Clinical Training Simulation Available for Any and All NH Providers
To support the sustainability of gains made through the NH Youth SBIRT Initiative in screening youth and young adults for substance use in primary care settings, the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, in partnership with the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation is offering free access to a simulation that provides participants with effective brief intervention techniques for addressing substance use and mental health concerns with adolescents.
The virtual simulations, developed by Kognito, strive to increase provider confidence and improve quality of care, ultimately leading to positive patient behavioral change. This free online resource is a 1-hour interactive role-play simulation where health professionals build and assess their skills in conducting substance use Screening & Brief Intervention (SBI) and providing referrals to treatment when appropriate with adolescent patients.
To start using the simulation immediately, go to www.kognitocampus.com and enter nhsbirt as your unique enrollment key. You can also link to this simulation and other SBIRT resources through www.sbirtnh.org. This program is CE-certified for CMEs, CNEs and NASWs.
