Issues Ment Health Nurs; 37(9): 682-687, 2016 Sep.
Artículo en Inglés | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-27387524
Although substance use is prevalent in the United States, the majority of people who misuse substances do not receive appropriate treatment. This paper describes, (1) an interprofessional education (IPE) program for health professionals to provide Screening Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment to rural substance use patients, and (2) compares registered nurses' [RNs] and behavioral health professionals' [BHPs] attitudes to work with those patients and their perceptions on IPE. A data analysis of 62 RNs and 36 BHPs shows statistically significant increases in both attitudes and perceptions. This paper discusses the implications of the IPE program vis-á-vis substance use treatment.
