Indiana University School of Medicine Project ECHO: Tele-mentoring Program for the treatment of OUD

Indiana University School of Medicine Project ECHO: Tele-mentoring Program for the treatment of OUD

National TRC Webinar

Hosted by: Upper Midwest Telehealth Resource Center
Presented by: Kristen Kelley
Description: Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a guided-practice model that aims to increase workforce capacity by sharing knowledge. A panel of experts at the “hub” site meet regularly with prescribers, behavioral healthcare specialists and peer recovery coaches in local communities, via videoconferencing, to train them in the delivery of care to those with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). Through telementoring, ECHO creates access to high-quality specialty care in local communities. Through hub and spoke knowledge-sharing, networks create a learning loop. TeleECHO clinics can empower healthcare providers to become leaders in the community and healthcare systems on treating for OUD. This session highlighted how these participants can get involved in the Opioid Use Disorder TeleECHO clinics. Providers will be able to gain a better understanding of the best practices associated with OUD treatment, including the use of Medicated Assisted Treatment. Each session will contain a didactic on a specific topic but the majority of the clinic will be learning through case presentations by the participants. Through Project ECHO, participants will acquire new skills and competencies. They become part of a community of practice and learning, increasing their professional satisfaction while the feelings of professional isolation decrease.
