ECHO Idaho Opioid Addiction and Treatment
Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a learning and guided practice model unique in its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams (hubs) who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers (spokes). In this way, primary care doctors, nurses and other clinicians learn to provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities.
Idaho’s ECHO program focuses on opioid addiction and treatment. Experts in treatment provide regular sessions on a variety of associated topics. ECHO Idaho is administered by the University of Idaho and the WWAMI medical education program, in partnership with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and the Statewide Healthcare Innovation Plan (SHIP).
Participants in ECHO Idaho receive free Continuing Professional Development credits and have access to expert support during ECHO sessions. View ECHO Idaho’s informational flyer here.
