MAHEC's Project ECHO® for Chronic Pain

Feb 9–Mar 9, 2023 Open Medicine

MAHEC's Project ECHO® for Chronic Pain

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 Project ECHO® model includes case discussions, presented by attendees. This is the participant's chance to discuss difficult patient cases with a panel of experts and colleagues to gain feedback. When registering for this Project ECHO®, please be prepared to share a case discussion during one of our sessions.

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 Project ECHO® for Chronic Pain 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
• Harm Reduction Approaches

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.

MAHEC engages in evaluation activities to better understand the impact of our programs. By registering for this course, you agree that we may use your personal information in evaluative research regarding this program. Any reports published will be de-identified and reported in aggregate format.
