Continuing Training: Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences Addiction Medicine TeleECHO

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Health Care Outcomes) is a collaborative model of medical education and care management that empowers clinicians in rural and underserved communities to provide specialty care to more people right where they live. Through technology, Project ECHO connects an interdisciplinary team at the OSU Center for Health Sciences with community providers to discuss treatment for chronic and complex medical conditions. The heart of the ECHO model™ is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, primary care doctors, nurses and other clinicians learn to provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities.

The OSU Addiction Medication TeleECHO training includes topics of screening and diagnosis, neurobiology, impact on medical and psychiatric illness, and pharmacologic and bahvioral treatment modalities. The Office of Continuing Medical Education designates this program for a maximum of 2 AOA Category 1-A credits per session and will report CME specialty credits commensurate with the extent of the physician’s participation in this activity.
