Summary: The Meth Check: Ultra Brief Intervention Tool is a clinical tool designed to guide health professionals through a 5-10 minute ultra-brief intervention with someone who uses methamphetamine. Specifically, the tool is a 2-sided A3 printout which guides the health professional and their client through a brief conversation about methamphetamine and the client's experience using the drug. However, the tool is not intended to replace a full clinical assessment.

An introductory video is provided to explain how to use the tool in practice. The developers strongly recommend health professionals watch this before using the tool.

The developers also recommend health professionals complete a short e-learning program about methamphetamine before using any of the Meth Check tools.
