TeleECHO 1: Chronic Pain & Opioid Management TeleECHO Sessions

Pain management is a significant issue in healthcare today with upwards of 70% of emergency room visits related to pain concerns. In addition, community clinicians often require some support as it relates to pain management. ECHO Pain facilitates a multifaceted approach to chronic pain by incorporating a team of specialists that support primary care clinicians in the management of chronic pain and opioids. At each TeleECHO session, a subject matter expert or faculty member will deliver a brief didactic lecture, followed by community clinicians presenting clinical cases for feedback and recommendations. This participatory environment of will provide group-learning opportunities of reducing variation in care and improving outcomes for patients experiencing chronic pain. Free continuing education credits for physicians, advanced practice clinicians and pharmacists are available at the end of each session.
