Fidelity Instruments
  • PROJECT ED HEALTH- BNI Adherence & Competence Checklist
    This fidelity checklist was developed by the Yale School of Medicine and is designed to be completed by a reviewer (observer). This instrument is relatively simple; "Yes" or "No" is checked for each of the SBIRT concepts.
  • SBIRT Proficiency Checklist- Short Form
    The SBIRT Proficiency Checklist Validation Study (PERU, 2014) concluded that the Short-Form Proficiency Checklist was valid in the assessment of SBIRT fidelity. This tool is a simple 13 question checklist separated into five categories: Screening (3 items), Brief Intervention (4 items), Referral to Treatment (2 items), Follow-Up (1 item), and Motivational Interviewing Spirit (3 items). This checklist was designed to be completed by a reviewer (observer) who determines whether the 13 components of the SBIRT process were present (or not present) in the SBIRT session.
  • SBIRT Proficiency Checklist- Long Form
    The SBIRT Proficiency Checklist Validation Study (PERU, 2014) concluded that the Long-Form Proficiency Checklist was valid in the assessment of SBIRT fidelity. This instrument contains 22 items, and is designed to be completed by a reviewer (observer) who rates the healthcare professional on a scale of 1 (component not met) to 5 (component met) in 5 key areas: Screening (4 items), Brief Intervention (5 items), Referral to Treatment (5 items), Follow-Up (2 items), and Motivational Interview Spirit (6 items).
  • SBIRT Validation Study (PERU, 2014)
    The Program Evaluation and Research Unit (PERU) at the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy published this study on the validation of two SBIRT proficiency checklists (SBIRT Proficiency Checklist- Short Form & SBIRT Proficiency Checklist- Long Form).
