Project ECHO Session (Opioid Addiction and Treatment Track)

ECHO uses a “learning by doing model” in bi-weekly one hour video conferences, where primary care providers present de-identified cases to colleagues and specialists at the hub site. They then receive treatment suggestions from the entire community of practice. Each session lasts one hour, and includes a short presentation on a specific clinical topic. Learn best practices for treating patients with chronic pain or opioid use disorder and connect with peers from around the state.

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an evidenced-based learning model that uses video conferencing to link health care professionals with specialist teams for interactive continuing medical education and mentoring. Regularly scheduled sessions led by a panel of medical specialists include didactic lectures and review and discussion of patient cases submitted by participants throughout the state. This format allows Idaho providers – especially those practicing in rural and frontier communities – to learn best practices and receive consultation and mentorship needed to care for complicated patients. ECHO trainings are offered free of charge and participants receive free continuing medical education credits. The goal of the program is to build a network of Physician Assistants, Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, Nurses, Counselors, Social Workers, and other Healthcare Professionals who are better able to manage common, complex conditions that present in their scope of practice.

In the Opioid Addiction and Treatment track, learn best practices for treating patients with chronic pain or opioid use disorder, connect with peers from around the state to discuss what really works, and get feedback on difficult patient cases from a panel of specialists.
