Recognizing & Treating Opioid Use Disorder - 5/13/21
ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an opportunity for providers across the state to get specialist knowledge, clinical advice and recommendations from substance use and pain management specialists in a virtual learning network.

Each ECHO call consists of a brief didactic presentation followed by a clinical case discussion from a provider and recommendations from the team for treatment.
