Summary of "Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment for Prenatal Alcohol Use and Cigarette Smoking: A Survey of Academic and Community Health Care Providers."

Prenatal alcohol and cigarette smoking are associated with numerous adverse pregnancy outcomes. Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) represents a standardized approach; however, implementation in routine pregnancy care remains a challenge. The purpose of the study was to determine current practices, barriers to implementation, and education needs of healthcare providers utilizing SBIRT to address prenatal alcohol and cigarette smoking.
