Study Description
Brief Summary:
The goal of this research is to assess the impact of the "screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment" (SBIRT) intervention strategy for harmful substance use among HIV-positive people.

Condition or disease
Substance Use

Detailed Description:

The specific aims of the study are:

  1. To assess the feasibility of conducting SBIRT using (1) a patient self-administered intervention embedded in a web-based Personal Health Record (PHR) compared to (2) a provider-administered SBIRT intervention guided by the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) during clinic appointments.
  2. To examine the acceptability of web-based PHRs to conduct and communicate SBIRT compared to EMR-activated SBIRT conducted by clinic staff, from the perspective of the patient and the provider.
  3. To assess the impact of SBIRT on risky drug and alcohol use in an HIV/AIDS population and subsequent effects on sexual risk behaviors and antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence.
