Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a movement to distribute knowledge and amplify local capacity to provide care for all people all over the world. The ECHO model is committed to addressing the needs of the most vulnerable populations by equipping communities with the right knowledge, at the right place, at the right time virtually.
Our goal is to use technology to leverage scarce resources, share best practices to reduce disparities, apply case-based learning to master complexity, evaluate and monitor outcomes, teach and learn. The chosen topic is Buprenorphine Medication Addiction Treatment.
The sessions consist of:
- Short didactic seminar followed by a discussion
- Case-study presentation followed by feedback of recommendations and/or questions (15-20 minutes)
Upcoming sessions are below. The times may change as needed. Zoom information will be distributed to registered participants the week prior to the session. CME credit is available for participation. For more information or to obtain CME credit, please visit the UTHSC Project ECHO website
