LEARNING COLLABORATIVES: SBIRT IMPLEMENTATION  
 
As the SCC Project Management Office (PMO) moves from program design/development to program implementation, we will be convening program workgroups and committees in the form of Learning Collaboratives. The Learning Collaborative approach focuses on spreading, adopting and adapting best practices across multiple settings and introducing opportunities in organizations that promote the delivery and implementation of effective programs. 
  
SCC Learning Collaboratives are shared-learning sessions with topics designed specifically for organizations participating directly or indirectly in the DSRIP programs. The goal of the collaboratives is to create a community of knowledge that can help participants accelerate program implementation, systematic change and make lasting breakthroughs that meets or exceeds program expectations.
  
Panel discussions during Learning Collaborative
Last week, the SCC PMO hosted the first Learning Collaborative of DSRIP program 4bii, specifically the Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) Initiative. This Learning Collaborative was hosted in-person for one hour. Alyse Marotta, Project Manager at the SCC facilitated a panel discussion around SBIRT roll-out for Suffolk County Hospitals.
