Abstract

Alcohol intoxication remains the number one risk factor for trauma-related injury in this country. In an effort to comply with the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma standards of care to screen trauma patients for at-risk behaviors for substance abuse, the trauma advanced practice nurses at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia instituted a new Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) process. This article summarizes the role of trauma advanced practice nurses in establishing an SBIRT program.
