MAHEC Project ECHO® for Chronic Pain (5-Part Live Webinar Series)

Description

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 provided by participants.

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 video teleconferencing series, guided by experts, takes place over five bi-weekly modules (1-hour each) and covers topics such as:
Opioid Basics
Central Sensitization and Addiction: Identifying and Treating Substance Use Disorders
Psychology of Pain and Behavioral Health Treatment Modalities
Deprescribing Opioids
The Urine Drug Screen



All program dates are streamed on the ECHO Zoom Platform from 7 AM to 8 AM EST.
Participant must login at 6:50 AM for attendance.
One credit hour is earned for each session attended.
