Learning Collaboratives

Mid-America ATTC hosts virtual learning collaboratives to help professionals throughout our region implement various evidence-based practices related to substance use disorder treatment and recovery. Using Zoom videoconferencing technology, participants are able to connect with subject matter experts and other professionals to learn from each other as a community. See below for more information on our current learning collaboratives and how to join.


Mid-America ATTC partnered with the Mid-America MHTTC, and Mountain Plains MHTTC for Telehealth Learning and Consultation (TLC) Tuesdays, an online series for providers new to or unfamiliar with telehealth to ask questions of our specialists and hear practical advice.

During each hour-long session we will spend the first 20 minutes covering a topic such as acquiring consents or billing for telehealth services, then address questions submitted by registrants for that week. Recordings of the 20-minute presentations will be posted on the telehealth web page as they become available.

You must register separately for each TLC Tuesdays session. While filling out the registration form, you will prompted to submit any questions you might have. Register by clicking one of the dates below.
