Prevention of Opioid Misuse for Erie County NY Women of Childbearing Age

This initiative improves the health of women of childbearing age (15-44) by developing and piloting a model to implement universal screening, brief intervention and referral for treatment (SBIRT) in community-based OB/GYN practices.

We will evaluate this pilot initiative, assemble the results into a replicable model and disseminate throughout New York State and nationally.
