Grants and Contracts Details


The overall aim of the proposed project is to examine the feasibility of using innovative telemedicine technology to deliver an evidence-based alcohol intervention (MET) to rural offenders re-entering the community from prison. The significance of this study for public health includes the opportunity to build on advances made by other uses of telemedicine that have included providing health and mental health services to individuals in rural areas and to incarcerated individuals. This study is innovative with the focus on offenders at community re-entry, as well as the use of telemedicine as a new technology to increase access to evidencebased alcohol services in real-world settings.
