These conversations occur within a structure developed to support the goals of the grant, including the SBIRT Council of Directors (COD), Student Advisory Group (SAG), weekly leadership meetings and scheduled community (stakeholder) conversations. The diverse perspectives of faculty, students, and partners inform decisions about integrating SBIRT into the nursing curriculum, with our clinical sites and within our everyday conversations. By listening and responding, our programs leadership charters SBIRTs course towards true north.
