Project ECHO

Project ECHO on Substance Use Disorders and Pain
Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an opportunity for prescribers across the state to get specialist knowledge, clinical advice, and recommendations from prescribers with expertise in treating patients with pain and substance use disorders in a virtual learning network. ECHO sessions are targeted to all prescribers interested in learning more about the treatment of patients with pain and substance use disorders. Each ECHO session includes a presentation from one of our experts followed by an opportunity for the audience to present patient cases to our entire panel of experts. Each one-hour Project ECHO session counts towards the eight hours of required training on opioid and substance use disorders for your DEA license.

For questions or more information, contact Will Schmeeckle, Project Coordinator at NMA at
