New to the ECHO model? Click here to find out how Project ECHO® is changing the world.

Project ECHO® is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. ECHO is led by an expert team that uses multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual learning sessions comprised of a short didactic followed by case presentations.

The increase in mortality due to the misuse of prescription medications has caused the medical field to re-examine the use of opioids for pain management. This live online course explores the benefits and risks of opioids as well as various medications currently available for the treatment of chronic pain. This Chronic Pain ECHO is designed to provide medical professionals with specialized training in opioid prescribing and interventional pain management. Evidence-based practices will be shared by an interdisciplinary team of experts in chronic pain management, integrated family practice and medication-assisted therapy.

This live online series, guided by experts, takes place over six weekly modules (one-hour each) and will include topics such as:

  • Module 1 (Feb 6, 2018): Opioid Basics
  • Module 2 (Feb 13, 2018): Regulatory Update: CDC, NCMB, Stop Act, & UDS/T
  • Module 3 (Feb 20 2018): Psychology of Pain and Behavioral Health Treatment Modalities
  • Module 4 (Mar 6, 2018): Weaning and the Difficult Patient
  • Module 5 (Mar 13, 2018): Central Sensitization and Addiction: Identifying and Treating Substance Use Disorders
  • Module 6 (Mar 20, 2018): Medication-Assisted Treatment for Addiction
