About this Series:
Project ECHO will link specialist teams at an academic “hub” with primary care clinicians
in local communities – the “spokes” of the model. Together, you’ll participate in
weekly teleECHO™ clinics that act like virtual grand rounds combined with mentoring
and patient case presentations.
Our BMAT ECHO aims to improve access for patients suffering from OUD through a six-week series consisting of brief educational sessions followed by case presentations.
Our initial topics will include:
- Harm reduction
- Introduction to OUD management
- OUD during pregnancy
- Common co-occurring diagnoses and their management
- How to manage an induction of buprenorphine in the outpatient setting
Here’s a short Project ECHO overview video created by the program’s developers.
The regular interactive hub-spoke video conferences (using simple video-conferencing software that can be used on any desktop computer or mobile device) will consist of:
- Short didactic presentations by the specialist on buprenorphine medically assisted treatment
- Followed by case presentations by a family medicine participant
- Followed by interactive discussion between the specialist and family medicine provider
- CME or other educational credit is offered by the ETSU Office of CME
Didactic and discussion will focus on providing learning around medically assisted treatment, specifically addressing those providers who have or are interested in obtaining their waiver in order to prescribe buprenorphine. The goal is to increase the knowledge base and comfort level of family medicine physicians, nurse practitioners on treating opioid use disorder.
