MAHEC Project ECHO® for Medication-Assisted Treatment (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. MAHEC's Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) ECHO is designed to provide medical professionals with specialized training in office-based opiate treatment (OBOT). Evidence-based practices will be shared by an interdisciplinary team of experts in OBOT, 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:
• Overview of Medication-Assisted Treatment Options
• Buprenorphine Induction
• Nuts & Bolts of Office-Based Opiate Treatment: Part I
• Nuts & Bolts of Office-Based Opiate Treatment: Part II
• Behavioral Health Treatment Modalities

This program will include the three required topics outlined by the new CME requirement in 21 NCAC 32R .0101:
1. Controlled substances prescribing practices
2. Recognizing signs of the abuse/misuse of controlled substances
3. Controlled substance prescribing for chronic pain management

As of July 1, 2017, all physicians (aside from residents), physician assistants, nurse practitioners, podiatrists, and dentists who prescribe controlled substances must satisfy the controlled-substance prescribing CME requirement set forth in 21 NCAC 32R .0101. Requirements vary by discipline and board. Prescribers will turn in controlled substance CME when they renew licensure.

Participants must register to attend this free ECHO to receive continuing education credits.
