2041: SBIRT Implementation: Undergraduate and Graduate Studentsí Perspectives; Using Simulation to Teach Cultural Competency as a Component of SBIRT Training
Screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) for alcohol and other use was integrated into the nursing curriculum at University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing. We will present themes identified by focus groups of undergraduate nursing students. Qualitative data collected from nurse practitioner students will also be presented.
This presentation offers results of cultural competency taught through simulation experiences in undergraduate and graduate nursing education. Culturally diverse simulation scenarios were used to reduce student stigma of other cultures while learning an evidence-based practice to screen and intervene with patients who use substances.
Speaker: Lynn Boucek, BSN; Marie Fioravanti, RN, MSN, DNP(c); Ann Mitchell, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, FAAN
